Help with HTPC build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just need to some help in regards to whether all these components will be compatible

case: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20365
motherboard: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20288
cpu: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=21350
ram: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=15938
gpu: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19936
psu: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20752 (due to the fanless operation at low power usage)
cpu cooler: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=13232 (to possibly run passively)
hdd: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=17275

The aim is for the build to be as silent as possible, probably using the D14 passively with the fan only set to turn on at 50c
One of these fans will occupy the front: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19137 there will be no exhaust fans.

Also wondering as to whether the 3220 will be powerful enough to record from 4 HD Tuners simultaneously without issues, and for playback of bluray movies etc. As well as occasional light gaming


Thanks in advanced

Yes all of these parts are compatible and they will all fit inside the prodigy. The i3 is fine for light gaming and playing movies, but for hd tuners I cannot say.

Nice build, you'll be fine. I'm not familiar with the noise profile on the Prodigy stock fan, but I'm sure there's a better option out there. Go get a Noiseblocker.
