One of the best HTPC for XBMC that I have seen especially in performance/price ratio. Question: which XBMC version/platform did you use?

Nice setup. Wink

This looks like a fast and silent build.
And I like your TV as well. Wink

its exactly that!
Hyper Fast thanks to SSD Smile
i think windows7 boots in like 35 seconds!!
i can double check that to be sure but its insanely fast!
i got 3 fans in the case and ive set them to Low Speed...
Barely noticeable for me,,,
