Faceplate Color

Silver faceplate

Black faceplate

We custom machine the faceplate based on your order. The faceplate then goes through five different polishing operations all done by hand to produce a very high quality finish. Then we must send out the parts to be anodized to the color of your choice.

The aluminum case and all aluminum brackets are treated by an anodizing process for corrosion protection and a long lasting uniform finish. The rear portion of chassis is black anodized. The faceplate and buttons can be either black or silver.

IR Receiver Mounting 

IR Receiver Sensor


Faceplate is machined with a very small sensor opening for a infrared receiver. Two types of IR receivers are available.

The CIR receiver works well with Intel motherboards that include a 2x4 CIR header, some other MB's may also include this header. The CIR has a 5V stand-by power circuit which allows the system to be powered up and down depending on the remote control and how the power button functions.

The USB receiver attaches to a USB 2.0 header on the MB. Works with all MB's. Since the USB port powers down with MB, this sensor will only allow sleep mode.

Includes: IR receiver and internal cable. Both IR receivers work with all Windows versions, no drivers are required.

With USB receiver - add $30

HeatSync® Cooling System -MB


HeatSync® Cooling System

The HeatSync® Cooling System eliminates the need for fan cooling of the processor, this greatly increases system reliability. With our cooling system installed, heat from the processor is transferred into the heatsink case for dissipation to the outside air. Since the heat is directed outside of the case, this reduces the temperatures inside of the case. On some motherboards, a separate HeatSync® system can also be installed on the chipset.

The MC-2800HP case can handle CPU's up to 95 watts. We suggest using a 65 watt processor for a cooler running system.


  • HeatSync base assembly for processor
  • Custom bent and pre-fitted heat pipes
  • Aluminum clamping plates for heatsink case
  • HeatSync mounting hardware
  • Installation instructions
Select Your Motherboard: Below is a list of popular motherboards, but most mini-ITX motherboards are supported including High-end Server MB's with integrated CPU, Intel Mobile sockets, and AMD socket's. There are too many for us to list, if your MB is not listed, just select the "other motherboard" option and enter the model you wish to use.
