looking forward to it. MikeC, you do the best reviews of any tech site in my opinion, even for non-silentpc related stuff... e.g. the Squeezebox review awhile back.

very nice fitting build!
too bad shuttle doesn't have a 780g barebone. I like the case and the fit, but intel matx sucks IMO.

holy smokes nice build! what do you mean by "if you really want silence, 4 is a minimum" I was under the impression less fans = better. Are you saying that with 1 intake you had to run the fan speed so high (for temps) to where it was actually quieter to run 2 intakes with @ a lower speed? As others...

how effective is the padding on the door?
the door for me is already a huge factor in noise reduction. It drowns out a lot of the front intake and hdd.

Actually planning a similar rig when the q6600 drops late July.

So the smaller power cable can't be ran through the back somehow?

Why not relocate the HDDs up top so you can ditch the bottom fan?

What kind of sflex is that? Can you give the model name?

Is that the ultra-120 extreme?

92mm for a 90mm?

ok this may sound really dumb, but would i be able to install a 92mm fan (the nexus) in a case fitted with a 90mm. i imagine the screws just wouldn't line up. any thoughts? i guess i could soft mount it with zip ties which is probably wat i should be doing in the first place.

how do you manage to keep bugs and stuff from getting inside? it seems as though you are not using any filters.
