After much deliberating and trying to think of that "perfect" shortcut to an htpc, I finally just manned up and built one from scratch with the peripherals that I wanted.


Build details:


Silverstone Lascala Series (sst-lc13b-e) (added 2 silenX 80mm fans)

CM 500w PS

Asus P7H55-M Pro

Intel Core I3 540 3.06ghz

Corsair 4gb 1600mhz DDR3

Liteon BDrom

(4) 1TB 7200rpm seagates

Logitech diNovo

Win7 Pro 64bit


pictures of the build:

(huge pics sorry)


Yes, I'm a wire nazi.





Which software to run is also the next burden. Leaning towards wmc, tmt5, mbrowser. Any more insight? I know this part of the build is merely a preference thing now.


Regards,

Jon Cain

John,


Just my 2cents.


I took my extra drives out of my HTPC and moved them to a PC/Server.


I found that the extra drives were generating more heat than the stock case could handle.

i did a little testing and with all 4 drives spun up (multi copy/paste across drives for testing) and some other processes running in the back (cpu @ 75%) for 30mins, i recorded a max cpu temp of 98*F and 78*F in the case. is that good?

That's very good. Nice work.
