It's what I get using EasyTune6 from Gigabyte :/ It is pretty cold up north where I live in the UK and this will probably be lowering the temps a bit.

Antec Super Lanboy - Casual Gaming Rig

This build was used to satisfy my casual gaming needs whilst being relatively energy efficient, quiet and value for money. Compromises had to be made to ensure these conditions were met, but overall I am happy with it. Components include: Intel i3 530 2.9GHz + Mini Ninja (fanless) Gigabyte H55M-UD2H...

Thanks for the kind comments, Trav1s - the pc is linked to the TV via the HDMI input, I had to get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to the motherboard though, and it works fine at 720p. I couldn't get it to the full 1080p because the TV doesn't support it :( JamieG - yes I can hear the Antec fans o...

Antec Micro Fusion 350 HTPC

This is my first HTPC build and I am quite pleased with the result. Due to budget constraints I could not afford to spend too much on specialized components so I bought this to allow room for future improvements. The components are as follows: Antec Micro Fusion 350 Intel Pentium Duo Core E5200 2.5G...

I'm just looking at your zalman chipset heatsink and saw that you had to bend it to make it fit. I have had the same problem with the chipset getting in the way of the gfx cooler. Even though I have no experience of your motherboard, I think you didn't need to go through all the trouble of bending t...

What happened to the rear case fan? To reduce the noise levels? You might want to try mounting the HDD backwards so that the cables can be routed behind the drives - although it might be harder with the thick silver cables you have there. Check out my thread to see what I mean You could also try stu...

So are you going to attempt at trying to quieten those hard drives, and how loud is your seasonic? To be honest, I don't know where to start at about the hard drives. I could invest in some enclosures but with three of them, it might block the airflow from the front fan. The hard drives are resting...
