I've bought a Fractal Design 50mm Silent Series Cooling Case Fan
There was post somewhere on silentpc forums about someone fitting it on the ion330 with success.
The main culprit of the noise though seems to be the 30mm CPU fan. Unfortunately I don't think there is such thing as a quiet 30mm fan. I've bought a fanmate 2 which i'll hook it up to, someone reported some success with it on ion330 it'll raise the temps a bit, but these CPU's can run quite happily at 85C.
Although the fan noise is more than I'd ideally like it's still not as bad as a 1st gen PS3 or XBOX 360.

Hi, i had the same Problem! I located the problem with my wireless MSI Keyboard with USB Receiver. After turning on my LG TV with built in Bluetooth the Asrock waked every few minutes while the TV is on. I resolved that issue by moving the Asrock 30cm away.
This never happend to my MSI Media Live, although i was Able to wake up my MSI MEdia Live with Keypress. I can't wake up the Asrock by Keypress (but by turning on my TV lol)
But i have another problem with the power button: I can't go in supend or hibernate when pressing the powerbutton regardless which setting i have activated in XBMC it always powers down.
Choosing suspend when Powering off XBMC works indeed.
Possible solution? - Albert031 - 2009-11-23 22:08
Has anyone tried the lirc_sir module?
According to an earlier post, the ASRock is equipped with the W83627HF chip.
It is stated that the ir can be accessed via the uart:
'W83627HF provides two high-speed serial communication ports (UARTs), one of which supports serial Infrared communication.'
The documentation of that chip (http://www.isd.com/NR/rdonlyres/B066C916-0352-4684-AFD1-AD67C5541A3B/0/W83627HF_HGAW.pdf)
also states something like that.
So one would need to something like this (second serial port):
setserial /dev/ttyS1 none
modprobe lirc_sir io=0x2f8 irq=3
I don't have an ASRock (yet) so I can't test it myself.

For irw to work, lircd daemon needs to be started
But now you can better use mode2, it shows raw signals directly from the modules:
mode2 -d /dev/lirc0

No response when I use the remote..
- Albert031 - 2009-11-23 23:59
lirc modules sometimes bind to /dev/lirc1..
can you also try
mode2 -d /dev/lirc1
- marsjall - 2009-11-24 00:02
no such device lirc0 is the only one in /dev
