Just completed my second build for the bedroom and remembered to take a few pics before buttoning it up.
Stayed with the Intel i3-2100, but tried the ASRock m/b this time. Pretty much a simple build following the guides with 4 GB (2x2) G.Skill memory, a 120GB OCZ SSD that I had (contrary to some bad reviews have had no problems), and the hec 7k09 media center case. Went with the smaller case as opposed to my first build using the Silverstone GD04B. I was surprised how quiet the hec is. Much quieter than the Cable Co DVR. The hec is a little tight to work in but everything fits fine. Mounted the SSD in the 3.5 bay using Velcro. No HD for now. Playing movies from the main HTPC and live TV off of an HDHomerun Prime.
Thanks again for all the info on this thread and the great guides from assassin.
Assassin, if you are interested, in your paid guides#5, Guide #42, Sleep timer, there is an updated version that can be found here
. This timer works great and the new one has some added features.
