Thank you for your help.
I will try to nswer your questions now - How are you going to use the HTPC?
I will use it for 3d games and movies, listening music, edit some home made movies and others things like word, powerpoint... Basically I want a quiet PC because it will be placed at my bedroom under my full hdtv. It will be connected to my tv through hdmi i think...- do you really have need for an i7?
I want a good CPU that uses low energy and still have a great performance in multitasking and games.- In general, I don't think the S CPU parts are worth it. Buy the non-S part and then underclock/undervolt it if you want.
I thought about that, but i don't know how to undervolt it and I heard that could make it unstable, thats why I choose the s, because uses less energy and don't get so hot. - your GPU looks suspiciously like a motherboard
, Now its fine. I think this is the most problematic concerning the noise emission. I choose the Asus because its the most silent that i found.- you probably don't need a 660W PSU, could go lower and save $'s.
I don't know. Now that I have the GPU see if I still can have a lower PSU please.
- The Corsair H60 isn't known to be ultraquiet and chances are, won't be much better than a decent air cooler.
Hmmm so what you recommend?
- why two 1TB HDDs?
I want to backup all my movies and musics is the safest way possible. In a way that i only have 1 TB available but all the data are duplicated in the two HDD´s.
- do you have need for two Thunderbolt ports on a mobo? If not, you could go to a lesser board and save $'s.
I want a mobo with thunderbolt because in the near future will go out many hardware that will use it. (sorry about my english)
The case that you recommended its fine, but I choose the one with the biggest fans so they are more efficient and do less noise. And I like very much the concealed usd... at front, behind that panel.
Thank you. I know its difficult a silent
HTPC for games...
