A very sexy build. I love WC setups but I just couldn't justify it for my HTPC. It runs almost silently on air. Still, congrats on the neat build!


RE: My HTPC media center miniITX ASUS + Koolance water blocks - Flinger - 2012-06-27

This is the three inch porterhouse of HTPCs. LOL.

I'm wondering how long it will be before you crack open those externals and build a cold-fusion powered unRAID box.


RE: My HTPC media center miniITX ASUS + Koolance water blocks - SavellM - 2012-06-27

You say OTT...

But for a nice quiet COOL htpc why not?!
I know my HTPC runs a 35w cpu and still gets bloody hot.
Then the fans come on full on, so makes quite a bit of noise
As its in a TV Unit shelf. So im now thinking of WC my htpc!

I'm not knocking it, I too think it looks great, but should have been installed in a perspex case so that it can be seen!
