HTPC Casing

Anyone can recommend casing for HTPC?
I need those square one, rather than tower type.

Because I want to hide it under a table.

Motherboard is Micro ATX size.

Thanks.

You want to hide it but you want a micro atx board?

Why not mini itx? Why not nuc?

Under the table box chassis? Those are bigger than a mid-tower overall. Rather have a mid tower and stick to one side of the the table or wall and they are more discrete.

Anyway, commonly, this is not bad. Mind the size though.
