Here it is. I have just built this in the last few weeks as my new pc and HTPC. This is going to plug into my on order sagem 56 m via dvi, pioneer amp . and get video from my sky + box. Also going to link into xbox 360 via mce. My two prioritys (which are self cancelling) are speed and quietness, I wanted this to play great games,av etc whilst also being quiet and fit into my av stack. The case is big, as big as my amp, but it has great airflow and can fit any standard pc component. This also leads it to being quieter as the fans at the back don't have to work as hard. The cpu fan is also super quiet. Same with the psu which has a supersize fan and hence runs slower and quieter. the only noise is from the graphics card, I am trying to tweak it to run slower in normal operation. When this is in my hi fi cabinet it should make any noise. Other than that i may add some sound deadening foam later on. All components were source for best price/performance. This is also relativley future proof, It can handle dual core AMD's , as well as software switch dual Nvidia 7800s for future upgrade potential. #OS MS MediaCentre MEC 2005 OEM #graphics HIS X800 IceQ II Turbo - graphics adapter - RADEON X800 - 256 MB #soundcard on order HDA Digital X-Mystique 7.1 Gold PCI Dolby Soundcard (SC-000-HT) #case Silverstone LC14 #fan Zalman CNPS7000B-CU Super Flower Cooler AMD #processor AMD A64 3500 VENICE S939 OEM #motherboard ASUS A8N -SLI PREMIUM #DVD Writer Tosh SDR5372VBB BLACK X16 DVDR #memory 1 Corsair Tx PRO 1024mb 3200 C2 #fan 1 460W Akasa UQuiet PSU Blk/Fan #hard driver 1 200Gb Seagate SATA HDD 7200/8m Microsoft remote control Pictures to follow, I spent a fair bit of time speccing this up, so anyones welcome to use my grunt work.
