you got the antenna, but no tuner. hmm maybe you are simply using the built in tuners. It qualifies as a HTPC I guess. HTPCs gotta have more functions though, or it's just a normal rig connected to a HDTV. May I suggest: Home Automation? FFDshow? Honestly, i maybe watch TV maybe once a week at most...

I actually have 4 fans total and need them all: 1) CPU 2) GPU 3) HDDs 4) Exhaust And yes I tried the Ninja, as well as an XP120 before, and wasn't as happy as I was with the Big Typhoon. As for "where's the HTPC stuff" comment. Sorry, some of us "HTPC" folks don't like to watch T.V., instead concent...

There is a lot of speculation on TCASEMAX and TDP in regards to temperature and overclockability but everything has been inconclusive to date. Take for example, i had a X2 3800 stepping LDBHE 0601XPDW . My tcasemax = 71c, TDP: 89.0Watts. It was one of the coolest running dual cores i ever had (i hav...

Hehe, although the concern about noise is warranted, there are two things i do to combat this: 1) I utilize Cool N' Quiet w/ overclocking (see http://forums.silentpcreview.com/viewtopic.php?t=30703 guide I wrote) to keep temps down 2) I utilize speedfan so the 120mm Panaflo's run at the minimum 30% ...

Silverstone Temjn TJ04 HTP²C Build

Just wanted to post some pics of my HTPC build around a Temjin TJ04 Mid Tower Case. Although my previous Silverstone LC-17 was great, I ran into immense trouble with cooling as I went to higher end components (CPU/Video Card/HDDs). All of the available cases labeled as used for HTPC had minimal sele...

Thanks! I corrected the error and added some additional things in response to people feedback (mostly troubleshooting and working with RMClock)... It's quite strange, but some people's identical core to mine cannot undervolt beyond 1.1V. This there hard limit, while for reason, mine can be pushed do...

Overclocking with Cool ‘N Quiet Overclocking ha...
