Ok- So I finally completed my new HTPC build. Few more finishing touches left and then I need to take some final pictures. I can include some early build pictures now as I have them available on my PC. Stay tuned for the finished ones-
CoolerMaster COSMOS II PC case
Rosewill Lighting Modular 1000watt PSU
Asus Z68 LGA1155 GEN3 Deluxe Motherboard
Intel Core i7 2600K CPU
Coolermaster 212EVO CPU cooler w Artic5 Silver
16GB G.SKILL RIPJAWZ 1600mhz PC12800 DDR3
(2x) HD6870 video cards
OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS 120GB SSD
(5) WD GREEN 2TB drives
(3) WD Green 3TB drives
(3) WD Black 2TB drives in RAID 0
20 Case fans, with LED and lighting controls
Probably a bit much for a HTPC
This pc functions as my daily driver and not just as HTPC. It's connected to my Onkyo Receiver and Projector via HDMI cable under the floor to the theater one room over. I control it with a LENOVO wireless remote Keyboard/Mouse.
I don't have finished pictures yet- but stay tuned. I will post some early pictures below now.
I plan to sleeve all the cables with sleeving for a really cool look inside.
I absolutely love the fact that this case has 2 HOT SWAP SATA bays for 3.5" HDD's in the front. I can basically add or subtract drives without any tools or taking the case apart. Very cool for someone who is constantly moving data and has many drives.
here is a link to some of the early pictures:https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...3&l=cb68b3c8c2
