I'm impressed by the amount of power you've been able to throw in there. That is the ultimate HTPC. How is the idle noise? If only they had made it so you could use 120mm fans. It would also be nice if you were using a passive PSU, although I doubt a 120w PICO PSU could fully power the system at load? I could be wrong.

Fitted with a good modern mATX this is a wonderfully functional, quiet and good-looking system. I'm running quite an extensive system with E8400, 4GB, 2x500GB disks in raid0, Bluray, a 60GB Apex SSD (velcro'd to the base..). My CPU fan (a Scythe Shuriken low profile) is normally stationary.
