    Cool Just about to build my first SFF HTPC

    Im just about to build my first small form factor htpc and thought id share my experiences. Here's the kit list:

    Case: Antec ISK310-150 £64.98 from ebuyer
    MoBo Gigabyte GA-A75N-USB3 mini-ITX £75.46 from CCL
    CPU/GPU APU: AMD A6-3500 £54.02 from CCL
    Memory/RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9W £28 from Scan
    SSD: Samsung 830 128GB SSD £79.99 from Dabs
    Total £302.45

    Ive only just ordered so will have to wait a week or so for all the bits to arrive. Im sure there were probably better alternatives i could have picked but after going round in circles on google shopping etc i had to make a final decision and this is it.

    Feedback welcome.

    EDIT: I had links for all the above but couldnt post them as i havent accrued enough posts here yet. Will update later once i have 5 posts cleared.

    Got the bits yesterday and put it all together.Will need to tidy up the wiring. Also had to use some Patriot 4GB RAM that i had spare as what i ordered hasnt arrived yet.

    First impressions... very pleased with the performance but the case and power fans are a bit noisier than expected. Will post some pics and more thoughts later.
