I currently have a lame htpc that runs OK, but just ran into power supply issues.
I am using a Silverstone L16-M case with a Silverstone 500 Watts PW supply (SST-ST50EF)that went bad after 3 months. Just sent it back to them.
Does anyone know the reliability of these power suplies?
Here's my attemptempted new setup.
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 LGA 775 Processor Model (OC to 3.38 Ghz)
GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Memory
XFX PVT71JYHE9 GeForce 7950GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16
HDCPZALMAN CNPS9500 LED CPU Cooler
I also need more information on the graphics card. Some report it as noisy and others say it runs cool. I need it to be super quiet and also this card must fit the case.
The requirement is 220 mm so it may clear the center mount dvd drive in the case.
In my old setup i used an ATI 1600 Pro AGP
Can anyone comment on this setup, before I pull the trigger with Newegg?
