Home theater PC's or HTPC's have become quite popular over the past few years and many case manufacturers have comes out with HTPC cases. Most of them however have been quite expensive. Many people I know use their old PC for a HTPC so they don't want to spend a ton of money on a case for the HTPC, but they want something other than their normal PC case. This is where Apevia comes in with the X-Master, the X-Master is only $70 and it comes with a 500W power supply and can fit a normal ATX motherboard.

At one time everyone had to have the biggest and fastest computers that could be built, but as time goes on more and more users are wanting smaller, quieter and more power efficient computers. With more home users wanting convenience and us techy guys wanting to expand our system count, many builders are putting together HTPC computers. What is an HTPC, you ask? HTPC stand for Home Theater Personal Computer, which is a computer that is hooked up to a multi-media system and a TV. HTPC computers use the same components in a regular desktop computer but in smaller cases to fit in with multi-media systems and blend in.

HTPC cases have been around for a while now but they have are becoming more popular since components being released are using lower power and generating less heat than before. HTPC cases come in a variety of  shapes, sizes and colors.
