Agreed, but without going into too much, I'll just say that my background is well suited for this stuff. I'm just a bit dated having been in audio/video hibernation for a few years.

True...you could always hire me to build and configure the HTPC as pre-pro for you or just have me along for by the hour ad hoc consulting support as and when you need it smile.gif

I will take you up on this offer when my theater build is completed and my spending freeze is over biggrin.gif I gotta get the room done now, before I do any more gear.

I'm really liking this case more and more. Clean wiring is cake! Especially like the SSD mounting behind the MB (accessible with other panel removed) for freeing up a HDD slot.
Still looking to replace the stock cooler with my zalman once I get new mounting brackets (though the stock cooler is pretty quiet and hard to hear in this noise dampened case).
Currently having fun batch converting all my Video_TS to mkvs (for my own convenience) and then properly renaming everything for XBMC compliance (via therenamer). Done with a few hundred, and several more hundred to go!
Flexraid has been cake so far and lots of room for expansion!
