    My New HTPC

    This maybe of interest - slightly bigger than a shuttle but not much

    Well here's my new setup in the Silverstone case:

    Silverstone Sugo SGO1 Case
    AMD 3000+ Venice
    Silverstone NT03 CPU Cooler
    2 x 512MB Geil Value RAM
    128MB Gigabyte 6200 PCI-E (Component Out to SDTV)
    Technotrend Budget 1500 DVB-C Card
    Hitech Digital X-Mystique 7.1 Gold PCI Dolby Soundcard
    MSI RS480M2-IL Matx Motherboard
    NEC ND3540A DL DVDR/RW
    Hiper HPU-4B580 Type R 580W Modular ATX2.2 PSU - UV Blue

    Replaced Silverstone fans ( 1 x 80mm & 2 x 60mm) with panaflos

    Oh & some fairly good quality interconnects to the TV & Amp


    Here's the images:







    Had to cut away a bit of the fan casing on the rear 60mm fan to allow for the breakout box cable for component output & also file a bit away on the last slot for the DVB-C card. Otherwise no problems really.

    I was thinking more like one of those crome handle type things you get on a kitchen drawer, drill 2 holes in rear of case, and cable tie them onto it

    Thanks for the idea m8 will give it some thought - just spent the whole day trying to fix network connectivity issues only to discover it was a dodgy ethernet cable LOL
