Last year we tested two HTPC-cases made by Zalman. They were both meant to be stacked with other AV-equipment. However Media PCs do not have to be horizontal and 43 cm wide, they can also be shaped like normal midi towers. If you want to describe a media PC, you most likely focus on the special features such as remote controller and VFD-display than the size and shape of the case. According to this, the case we're about to test this time is definitely a Media PC.
GMC is a korean manufacturer that has a wide range of computer cases from the most basic steel chassises to more feature rich HTPC-cases. They also make power supplies, though our case came without one. The accurate model of the case that arrived to our test this time is AVC-K1. It's GMC's new mid tower model that also has remote and some other nice features that we'll go throught in the following pages.
