    Yes it is!!!

    I'm thinking of cooling my cpu passively and using a quiet but fan-cooled PSU or as alternative using a quiet cpu-fan and a passive CPU.

    Your tests are very appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

    I bought myself a Zalman ZM460-APS a month ago. There is a fan in it but this power supply is absolute qiet and it helps with the air flow in the case. I have a pasive CPU cooler so now the only thing I can hear is the HDD.

    Hi Tomas!

    What CPU are you using in the passive setup, and even more interesting; what passive cooler are you using ?

    Hi

    I have a Athlon 64 3000+ with a Sonic tower on top:
    http://www.thermaltake.com/product/cooler/retail/cl-p0071/cl-p0071.asp

    Now this CPU cooler is enormus so I do not recomend it in a smal HTPC box, but it keeps the CPU temp low whitout a fan.

    If your tuners work with WMC, in most cases they should work with MP. However, tuners cannot simultaneously work with two different media center applications. So if WMC is accessing the tuners, MP won't be able to access them. To be sure that WMC is not interfering, you should use the Windows "Services" panel and disable all of the...

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.
