I have to setup demo with diskless MD in living room with TV and Audio Receiver (Marantz sr5600). I'd kindly ask for your advices, opinions or your suggestions for this task. It should be quiet with as much Pluto's supported functionality as possible.
Currently I'm thinking on this direction :
- Case: Silverstone lc11m (potential cons: don't know how quiet can be and what is wrong that people are complaining on bundled remote and searching for alternatives)http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-lc11.htm
- MB : Asus A8N-VM CSM (pros: cool'n'quiet, Nvidia graphics, don't know about cons.... )http://usa.asus.com/products4.aspx?modelmenu=2&model=766&l1=3&l2=15&l3=210
- processor - haven't decided yet, cause don't know much about AMD, except that cool'n'quiet is working quite ok....
- cooling: Nite_man suggested :
I'd like to suggest PSU ZALMAN ZM300B-APS ATX and the processor cooler -
Zalman CNPS7000B-CU 92mm 2 Ball Copper Cooling Fan/Heatsink
Any opinion suggestion? What is your ideal diskless MD HW ? Maybe Core 2 duo would be better ?
Thanks in advance,
