+1 this is a very nice build
im very interested in an Intel based thin mini-itx build and have been eyeing the Intel DQ77KB. While is does IB I think i want to pull the trigger now and go with SB cpu. My hesitation is that I will be playing back 3D-BluRay content and would like to make sure this 2120T could handle all that without choking.
machine will also need to handle my sabnzbd/sickbeard/etc setup so I thought the additional CPU power on IB would be better but im not sure..

BTW in real world testing the "T" model CPUs use the exact same amount of wattage as the "non-T" CPUs at idle, playback and typical HTPC use.
