    Re: New Cooler Master HTPC Case's update

    Update

    I have finally gotten this box finished and it is working very well . Final specs are as follows .

    ASUS A8N-VM-CSM , 512 mb X 2 Samsung DDR 400 , AMD 3200+ Venice core , Coolmax 350W fanless power supply , NEC 3550A DVD , Netgear WG311T wireless card , HD Maxtor QuickView 100GB SATA ,OS XP Pro with snapstream beyond tv link , Black Solid Year Wireless Keyboard ACK-573 and the imon / cooler master remote , logitech X-530 5.1 speaker system .

    This system is hooked up to my VIZIO 32" LCD TV that I got at Sams a while back .

    I had only had one minor problem while putting it together this time . The coolmax psu is longer and thicker than a normal psu . When installing the top stiffener / riser card holder I found I had no clearance . Enter the dremel tool with a cut off wheel One careful cut later and I had plenty of clearance This power supply was worth the extra work as it is silent . This case comes with 3 small case fan's that run very quite . The loudest thing is the proc fan .

    The remote has more functions than I will use but still nice to have them . Lay out is pretty good and it has excellent range .

    The keyboard that I decided on can be found here . It measure's 13.5 " X 6.75 " X 1 "
    This with the remote is a good combination .
    Later I will be adding a tuner card and a large hd .

    IMHO coolermaster has a definite winner especially if you want a case that can handle a full size mother board .

    To Uncle Bob and everyone else thanks for the help and advice .
