I have reached my goal of building the fastest HTPC for less than £800!

For a daily use I lower the CPU speed to 4.725GHz.

What do you think about noise level?

Yeah, it's colorful. But with 1TB, that's no HTPC...just another SFF desktop; far from a mod. Get a working Ceton card in there, start getting those 12TB's filled, and then it's an HTPC perhaps.

yeah, I would have spent my money on a cheaper setup and fill it up with TB drives with a proper raid card. Even my normal gaming rig houses 11TB.

Jesus! I thought I was rockin' with a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB and two WD Caviar Green 2TB HDDs with two external 1TB HDDs.

What the Hell are you storing on 11TB?

How do you like the Liquid Pro? I was thinking about picking some up not too long ago. I'll admit I was taken in by the 100% metal claim, but I'd like some first hand feedback before I take the plunge and tear apart my gear to try it myself.
