Idle temperatures from EVEREST Ultimate Edition 2007:
Motherboard: 39C
CPU: 40C
Core 1: 20C
Core 2: 14C
HDD: 40C
GPU: 61C


Stressed temperatures from EVEREST Ultimate Edition 2007:
Stressed through: AtiTool scanning for artifacts, HDD stressed, CPU stressed.
Motherboard: 39C
CPU: 75C
Core 1: 52C
Core 2: 51C
HDD: 42C
GPU: 70C


Fan speeds:
CPU: 915 rpm
Intake 120mm: 651 rpm
On 100% stressed the CPU fan goes up to 1176 rpm


Noise:
Death silent, no really! I can only hear a slight hum from the HDD when I sit on my knees and keep my ear, like 20 cm of the case. How else would this be possible with only 3 moving parts in the whole system (2 fans, 1 HDD) :D

The stressed temps could be a bit high. But remember: for games I have my other PC that I build earlier. This one is purely for: TV, Video and Audio it never happens that it gets 100% loaded.
So in a reasonable situation, even with 1080P video files, the HTPC will only hit like 60% system use and that is divided over: memory, CPU and GPU because I use Media portal with Hardware acceleration.


The only problem I have now is: storage space, but I have a nifty device in the floppy bracket for a decent solution. It’s a removable Notebook drive also 120 Gb big. I use it like a Tape recorder. So I can use removable HDD’s like video tapes. But besides that I’m looking for a bigger drive solution I think a Antec external Drive with 1 TB is a good idear.

A tad too dark photos, hard to see all the details, but as far as I can see, good work! Seems kinda familiar as I had M2N32-SLI dlx and a Silverstone PSU installed into one of those cases too :)

I did stole some idears from a few posts on the forum.
Like the one with 120 mm intake fan.
