Plus this case: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/akeufacaform.html and add $20 for the power brick.

 

Fast, compact, and completely silent since there's no moving parts! Easy to upgrade later down the line since you can reuse the fantastic case. Only downside is that it's a bit on the pricey side, but that's only because of the 500gb SSD.

Heh, not enough HDD room. But a very nice build.

It's a standard Mac Wireless keyboard and trackpad in a BulletTrain Express tray.

 

$100 isn't cheap but it seems really cool if you're using the Mac platform and like laptop HID layouts.

HDD would not make this build truly silent. He said he will be using an external drive anyway. Of course by using a larger case, another drive could be easily accommodated. This case would easily do that: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1333-page1.html

 

Also has room for an optical drive. Then I'd opt for a 128gb or 256gb SSD, then get a high capacity 2.5" drive. 2.5" HDDs are quieter plus that's the only way to fit 2 drives into that case :tongue_smile:

Here's my upcoming parts list; I only need to get the processor and the SSD, I have everything else.

It will be so glorious when I am finished with it. :cool:

All I can think about is the amount of noise it will produce... CPU cooler wise, especially at that price, you are much better off going Noctua, Thermalright, or Phanteks.

 

But I can't think of a solution for those 7970s noise wise... Possible but could be pricey.

I use this cooler in my rig: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 (will post photos/specs later). Running it on an i5-3470, overclocked to 3.9ghz. Temps are 25c at idle, and I've yet to see it get above 35c on the Prime95 torture test. (Ambient room temp is somewhere around 18-20c). It's practically silent most of the time, and barely audible under load.

 

I'll take some photos of my rig tomorrow. What I will say now is it's possible to build a fairly powerful and near-silent system for under $800. My total cost was around $750 (excluding peripherals, already had keyboard/mouse/monitors).

Technically an overclock but not a true overclock especially when your chip doesn't have an unlocked multiplier. The 212+ is better than the stock Intel cooler, but far from being truly inaudible.

The noise won't bother me, my tower will be pretty far back and under my desk, and I'll have headphones on anyways. The case I've chosen is also very, very proficient at cooling and noise reduction.

That´s a dream team, I really envy your setup, would just ad the Bottlehead Crack Amp and change the HD700 for the HD800. Well I think dreaming won´t hurt me

The Bottlehead Crack is not a good amp for the ortho headphones, e.g. HE0500.  A better setup would be Schiit Gungnir / Mjolnir combo.

My HTPC @ work...

In the box:

Intel Core2 Quad Q6600
Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B
Asus P5G41C-M LX
G.skill Ripjaws series DDR3 8Gb kit
EVGA Geforce GTS250
Turtle Beach Montego DDL
Samsung 840 120Gb SSD
Hitachi Deskstar 80Gb HD
Seagate Freeagent 750Gb USB2
WD Elements 100Gb USB
Samsung SH-S183L DVD burner
SeaSonic M12II 430W
Silverstone Sugo SG-01B v1 case

 

My only want here is a better compact 2.0 or 2.1 setup that isn't Klipsch...  Thoughts?

Or the Bottlehead S.E.X. Costs a lot less, and you still get to build it yourself :)
