I've toyed with picking one of those barebones up to throw on a bedroom tv. I was eying the H61 models as it opens up more possibilities for cpu heatsinks vs the special shifted one the H67 models come with that are reportedly loud. Looks like the case fan may be loud too, but can always do a 7v mod, replace it, or even not use it at all if temps at least stay in spec.
While you can do those setups cheaper, with the $30 ECS board and all you see thrown around, those foxconn barebones are great bang for the buck when you consider port selection and all IMO. That cheap ECS board doesnt have as many usb, no esata, etc like the foxconn.
Anyhow, let us know how it turns out. Noise levels is my greatest concern since it would be in a bedroom. I want near silence, not some whirring beast like a 1st gen xbox 360 or something.
