Description

An over the top home theater system in a custom enclosure.

It began life as a desk build but later became an entertainment center to reflect how I prefer to use it.

I just wanted to share in a couple different places. And if you follow that thread to the end you'll see I just finished it last weekend. Or finished it the second time rather, after I quit using it as a desk.

Dang this thing is awesome. Any plans to water cool the graphics card?

Not really, I'm sort of paranoid about taking graphics cards apart. If I do a water cooled gpu at some point it will be when I upgrade and get a EVGA Hydro edition card with the water block already mounted.

Ya it does look pretty daunting, I may try when I get some cash :)

You built a custom wood case for your HTPC and you are worried about removing a heat sink? Just get some good instructions or a demonstration off of youtube and follow it.

All you have to do is remove some screws, pull the cooler off and unplug the fan, it'll take you five minutes. My advice is just don't overthink it. Overthinking things can lead to being, well, paranoid! :)

Have you placed a heatsink on a CPU before? GPUs are the same thing, 'cept the chips are a thousand dollars. They are a little more sensitive to force, but that's it.

Possibly the best HTPC ever? Amazing job.

Someone put a full watercooled computer inside a wall, and put a TV infront of it. You never knew it was there. Imma try and find it and post the link....

Show off!!!!

I am guessing you plan on gaming on this rig as well or else why all the power?

Great custom build though. Invite the family and neighbors to see a movie.

I game on it quite a bit. It's just home theater, big screen, surround sound couch gaming.

As I started the pics, I was really hoping what looked like just a desk would actually be the entertainment center with TV atop. It was. +1

Do you need more fans?

Oh...it's nothing spectacular. It's not that powerful of a build. HAHAHA joking!!! This is flipping awesome!! Love it! +1

Holy ****! I can see you took any notion of a budget HTPC and threw it out the window! Love it!

A few words. HOT DAMN! Ok, a couple, but you get the point.

+1 for this build, because f@*k towers.

DAMN, how do those custom speakers sound though???

Mad skills you got there.

  • 70 months ago

I really enjoy these speakers. They're a Jim Holtz design, which you can learn about here: http://speakerdesignworks.com/Statements_Monitor.html

How loud do you have to crank those speakers to overtake the fans?

  • 70 months ago
  • 1 point

I've got enough cooling capacity that all the fans run under 500rpm, and the whole system is quieter than the noise floor of the room it's in.

+1 for the marantz. Very few people truly understand the meaning of high fidelity audio.

I use to spend a fair amount of time on home theater sites and saw some really nice projects made from scratch. This wooden case is astonishing. No one would ever know what you have hidden there. What's the clarity of computer text on the 60" screen? Super nice system.

An over the top home theater system in a custom enclosure. WOW, that's putting it mildly... Awesome job!

The price of all your fans combines of more than your OS

It's even worse than that, this is the second set of fans. The original set was just too loud.

  • 70 months ago

So you spent more on fans than your CPU.
