Bought thhis to go with th Silverstone Tek GD05B HTPC case so that I could use the Antec VERIS IR system that fits into a 3.5" opening to remotely control the system.The case has a 5.25 external bay opening.
I thought that paying the absurd price for this adapter that I was actually getting a quality product that is not only of sturdy construction, but that would fit their other line of products in size and appearance. What I received was sturdy, however it was a fraction of a millimeter too big and while I could get it to fit by forcing it in there, I also didn't like it's appearance. The grain of the aluminum on this is going the wrong way...vertical instead of horizontal, so it looked off. Not only that, I could not get the VERIS to line up the holes to mount it as there is only a few options for mounting holes in this. I ended up throwing this in the closet and got a $3 black Bytecc 5.25 to 3.5 converter that not only fits better both physically and aesthetically, but had a plethora of mounting holes which allowed me to mount the VERIS with ease.
I love Silverstone's HTPC line of cases, but this is a complete miss.
