MP1 MP2 better tha zalman? DE
To my knowledge Zalman don't make any smaller cases. Check out Silverstone GD01MX or Antec Fusion Remote for a smaller case with an LCD. The smaller cases have limited (1 or 2) internal drive bay capacities. If you're looking for the smallest then ditch the LCD/VFD altogether and go for an ITX based case and system, and build a...

MP1 MP2 Silverstone LC20 DE
Well. All is good. The VFD now works and the foil between two bits of cardboard wrapped in tape is blocking the signal from the hauppage remote so, no more double commands every key press. Thanks to Kiwijunglist for the info that led me to solving this problem. Cheers Ventry

Mmm ok, So it will be hard for me to make a decision... Thanks for the antec P-options but sadly the are to big for the tv-cabinet. (max 17cm high), The NSK can't house a full ATX motherboard. If I will go to Micro-atx then I will buy the GD05 from Silverstone. But that doesn't support ATX motherbord. So this is also no option...

with a nice case that just fits in the hole (antec micro fusion) , ikea bonde bench, there is the same problem, not a lot of room down the sides. however, ikea bonde bench is not too expensive and if you don't mind taking the saw to it as I did... you can mount a couple of uber-quiet Yate Loon 140mm fans in the back of the bench...

I have the remote working completely. There was nothing special to do: I updated iMon software, the first update was a downloadable zip file.

Yes, I realised that just as I clicked submit :rolleyes: It doesn't run hot at the moment, even with the fans running very slowly and it's only got a standard AMD OEM heatsink on the cpu (with a Noctua fan grafted on). With a bigger heatsink I reckon I'd _almost_ get away with turning the fans off completely, but the inside of the...

I have been relatively happy with my Cooler Master CM 280 (hard to find now). I am thinking about changing the fans I have in it (or at least under-volting them). The case is not for everyone. It is tall. Tall enough to have a 120mm exhaust fan located above the motherboard (not simply the side of the case like the Antec ones, though...

I built an HTPC on using the Thermaltake DH-101, MediaHD IR Display and remote with a dual Core CPU on an Asus P5N7A-VM(HDMI) motherboard. I installed the Hitatchi 1TB Sata Drive, with a separate 40GB Drive for the Operating System and a BlueRay-HD-DVD Burner. I find the Thermaltake case extremely well designed and the finish and...

Hello, I haven't posted forever. Thought I'd logon and answer some questions. What specifically are you looking to know? To get the power supply in the machine I took a pair of tinning sheers to the PSU case and cut off the non-essentials of it. I left the part that contains the fans. The Audio Level of it was fine for me...

Thanks for all the suggestions. That GD02 is a nice looking case. In the end I went for a Silverstone LC04. It's a tiny bit smaller at 31 cm deep and only 11cm high, but it still takes a full size OD and had no trouble fitting all my components. Plus I got an amazing deal on the case and I saved more cash because the included PSU...

I've got an S14V and the fans are near silent. In total there are 5 fans running: 2 Origenae exhaust fans, Origenae HDD fan, the power supply fan, the CPU fan on a Ninja Mini, and frankly my blu-ray drive is louder than any of them.

Im thinking of treating my Box to some silent case fans, and am unsure between the Scythe and the Noctua (both are the same price here in AU). The Scythe is rated at 2500rpm and the Noctua at 1800 but I would probably run them at less. Anyone had any experience with either model? Thoughts/ideas on which would be best (quietest, best...
