Nice case. You should have tried the Noctua cooler horizontally so it sucks air across the hdds instead of sucking in hot air from the gpu
Added you as well. Nice color scheme (and name as well rolleyes.gif)

i don't see the "add" or my tape measure. send me a pm a so i don't forget.

Haha, yeah the PSU is huge. But when you want to keep the whole thing under 300$, you take the PSU that's on special! rolleyes.gif

If I were to build a new HTPC, I'd probably get a much smaller case, but this was my first PC build ever, and it's not like I have much else to store in my media console so I'm happy!

Did some organizing and cleaning up with my case build before I finally go into the water cooling conversion. It's been too long.

CynicalUnicorn is correct on the intended use for those extra expansion slots above the I/O shield. Besides eSATA/USB ports, there are also sound cards or capture cards with daughter boards that can be installed there. We made a joint press release with ASUS a few years back that showed how this worked:

Ah that makes sense. So many cool things could be done if there was a board with such a slot in x16 and on the other side of the board.

Yeah the low cost of ATX PSUs is something worth considering.

Thank you very much for your answer! Really cool way of saving space and allowing the user to get additional I/O without modding.

Can anyone vouch for the Cryorig C1? Hoping its not too loud/big

Would especially like to hear from anyone who has an ASUS Z97 itx plus and the cooler, wondering if they have any compatibility issues?

Pretty sure they demo it on a H97 on their website which has the exact same layout.

 

As far as performance goes, if memory serves me right it competes with the AXP-200 from Thermalright, aka it's good.

Thanks what I'm talking about! The smallest case in the club that's not a NUC.

This is actually an HTPC I built in early June 2012 - 3 years ago! The goal was to build a HTPC with a ~300$CA budget. It went well and is still alive and well, with an extra 2TB hard drive added in recently.
  • Yes, an intel G530. It's more than powerful enough for playing back video up to 1080p, and it's still going strong!
  • Yes, a measly 30GB SSD. I was planning on running XBMC on Ubuntu, but got fed up messing with display problems and went with Windows 7... It's tight, but it's enough!
  • The Coolermaster PSU is overpowere - I know, but I got it on sale.
  • The single 4GB stick was cheaper than any 2x2GB packs at the time, and I can easily drop in a second 4GB stick if necessary.
  • The 750GB HDD is from a WD external drive I had.


Added. I was going to get the G530 for my htpc as well but the store didn't have it so I ended up with the G620.

Wow, some of the builds on this thread are IMPRESSIVELY small. I sold the end of my bitcoin and ordered some parts to convert my old folding computer into an HTPC. Hopefully I'll have pictures by next week to register on the front page. Specs will be as follows:

CPU: intel 3570K (from the folding PC)
Motherboard: ASRock z77e-itx (from the folding PC)
and...


It'll be a fun build, I think.

I'm on my phone so I can't look it up but I feel like you're way overpaying for that SSD.
