Despite everyone advicing against intel p4, I went that route for my HTPC...

SilverStone Lascala LC11M, Silver
Asus P5LD2-VM, i955G, LGA775, Dual Core
Pentium4 Prescott 630, 3.0GHz, S775
Kingston DDR2 512MB, DDR2-667
Zalman ZM-CS1, Socket 775 Clip Support
Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu
SilverStone SST-RC01 PCI-E Riser Card
NEC ND-3540, DVD±RW, Silver

Will be using Samsung harddrive, ATI 550 analog tv tuner and Terratec DVB-T tuner. Hopefully, it will all work out. Will report once the hardware is in house :)

I am using Media Portal right now, as it seems to be the only one supporting all my hw (sort of)

regards
Knut Inge

Good luck!

I've got an AMD Athlon 3000+ in this case, and it's fairly noisy. Let us know how you go with noise, and what you've done to quieten it down.

Cheers,
Alex.

Hehe. Due to availability (not possible to get the VFD version here in norway). I went for the lc16m-s. Not as slick, but very low noise currently.

p4 is the best cpu for high quality video.

I recomand you to find a guide how to use:

ffdshow: for imaqe quality (needs Mhz, therfor intel is better than amd)

reclock: if you have have pal tv ntsc movies wil be speeded up to match pal and the movie wil go more smooth.

powerstrip: to get the correct resolution and refresh rate.
I guess correct resolution wil increese picture quality and i know refresh rate should match fps, so the movie goes smoother.

If you understand norwegian I have a great guide for you.

SpeedFan loses all the setting when restarted, how do I save the config?

It is pretty slow to check after chips everytime if it has find it one time isn't it? can this step be skipped in some way?
