    I couldn't name any of hand but I've seen some around here on TPU what look damn amazing for HTPC "gaming" chassis.

    I'll see if I can find any, I'll post back if I do. :)

    EDIT: I found this on AVForums which may help you out a lot.

    Most of the newer HTPC cases that look like stereo receivers will have enough room for a decent sized cooler and full sized GPUs.

    The silverstone ones can get very pricey though.

    The 11.5" GPU is easy but a HS and fan is another story. Most have the Optical drive over the CPU so and after market HS is a challenge. But really what is your budget cause they get expensive

    Check mine out below in my sig. It will hold a large GPU but its tight. It has great airflow
     
    Pehla says thanks.

    I just bought the Zalman HD503 for a HTPC build and love it. Looks great....
