New HTPC: A6-3500, Wesena ITX7 build
#1
Hello! So here's my HTPC. A big thank to the members of this forum (as well as SPCR forum), as they have been my main source of information.

Case : Wesena ITX7
CPU : A6-3500
Motherboard : Asrock A75M-ITX
RAM : Kingston HyperX 1600 (2x2GB)
Remote : HP Remote
Keyboard and mouse (integrated) : HP mini wireless keyboard
HDD : Salvaged a 2.5" HDD from an external USB HDD.
BD : 5.25 internal Samsung BD drive
External 5.25 Enclosure : Vantec (noisy....)


Replaced the stock fan with a Noctua NF-RF8 which let user with 3 presetted speed (~800, 1300 and 1800RPM), through the use of resistance. After some testing (noise and temp), I've put it on 1300RPM. If I want to game, I'll be forced to use the higher setting (which means opening the case!). So I'm still looking for a 80MM PWM fan that is not noisy (feel free to suggest!). So far, temps are always below 50C, with the CPU fan at about 30% (1600RPM) and the case fan at 1300RPM. I am satisfied with the temperatures.

Some numbers :
CPU Windows Experience Index : 6.3
GPU WEI : ~6.5
Power consumption playing 1080p file : ~27W
Power consumption under full load : ~85W
