    I got my Email from Thomas too. Someone on AVS was commenting that Enermax are actually pretty noisey, what about the ones from quietpc.com?

    I am gonna go for

    Soundcard = Terratec DMX 6Fire LT
    HDD = IBM 120Gb (they are cheap!)
    DVD = Pioneer A04 DVD-RW
    Processor = definatley P4 probably 2.0Ghz
    Graphics - not sure (maybe 9000 - but worried about TV out quality)
    PSU - not sure
    Motherboard - not sure

    ** Any advice or comment is welcomed!!!

    BTW: Its gonna look stunning next to my Arcam AVR100 amp!!!! yippe!!!!!!!

    Buns,

    who makes the new whisper ones? any link? may be worth asking the guys on AVS for an opinion.

    I too am looking forward to my DIGN case.

    I have an Enermax power supply in my PC, but TBH it's not that quiet.

    It's just a shame I can't afford to build my HTPC yet - it'll look good in the rack empty though :)

    But where to get a matching silver DVD-ROM drive?

    I've use the "Scan"(.co.uk) PSU with my silver coolermaster desktop HTPC case.

    350W CWT Quiet Dual Fan Version AMD/P4 Approved Active Fan Control, Active PFC

    £34.08 inc VAT

    I can comfirm they are near silent, and you are not paying any premium as well.

    I also use the

    Coolermaster HHC-L61 Delta Heat Pipe Radiator - With Silent Fan -

    £26.44 inc VAT

    And again was amazed how near silent this CPU fan is!

    The custom stuff available elsewhere may or may not be quieter than the above stuff, but with the three other case fans running as well (total 7 fans-2xPSU-1xCPU-1xVGA-3xcase), my Quadscan Elites single fan is louder!!!;)

    The new Enermax PSUs have built in fan speed control, making them as quiet as you want them to be.

    That case is really posh looking!
    Where can i find the specs/price etc?
    I just love that blue display.

    I have fitted a Gieger display in my case for the time being, but it doesn't really do anything apart from show clock speeds etc.

    As soon as something like the Dign type display becomes available with software for the Theatertek player i will upgrade it. (I've heard rumours that is what TT is working on)

    Hello Buns,

    The Enermax EG651P-VE(FMA) is a quality product.

    link here

    Expensive but worth it.

    I have one ready and waiting for my DIGN case :)

    A quailty PSU has a smoother DC output than some cheapy thing with a quiet fan installed.

    Mark.

    Hello buns,

    The smaller Enermax will be OK, it has the volume knob also :)

    I bought the 550W because I wanted the best one, with hopefully the smoothest DC output.

    550W should be enough for just about anything.

    Good luck,

    Mark.

    But for a Home Cinema wouldn't it be best to go for a smaller PSU which will generate less heat?

    After all, for what you use it for you wouldn't need all the components and horsepower of a fast PC.

    GagHalfrunt-

    You can get silver, black or normal DVD/CD RW drives at www.kustompcs.co.uk for about £47 - £66 depending on which make you go for. Ie, Pioneer 106 is there, and bezels to for people with Lian Li cases. I think I also saw bezels at Dabs too.

    Guys,
    I was wondering if we all payed Thomas the same amount for our cases - several people were commenting that the powerbuy was cheap but I don't think it was that cheap,

    I had the New Case, VFD and UK Shipping,

    Amount Charged to my CC by Paypal in sterling £183.68

    Was yours around the same,

    Chris.

    Has anyone actually got one of these yet?
    I am considering a bulk order, but really don't want to be waiting around for them.

    No one would have them, they only arrived with thomas 2 days ago.

    £200 seems a reasonable price for such a high quality job, there are many available at much much more.

    Some of us duid end up paying more than necessary since we ordered the new case, but then they were all upgraded foc....grrr! :D
