I would like my next build to be a slim SFF, with a case such as the Thermaltake Mozart Sx
This kind of case depends on the use of riser cards, which install add-ons horizontally above the mobo AFAIK. Doesn't this lead to (1) high temps and (2) no room for both the vid card and a tuner? How are people getting a full HTPC into one of these?
I like the flexibility to use ATX mobos, as then I have a much wider range of choices for a good performer for games and HTPC, but am wondering if a slim case dooms me to onboard video.
