Building the Perfect Silent HTPC

Let's head to AVSforum for a solid homemade HTPC. Noctua's NH-C12P SE14 passively cooling a 45W i7, and proving once again the Austrian brand's undeniable excellence.


Build a powerful HTPC that looks good, runs cool, can play games, and is powerful enough to run madVR on high quality without dropping frames. Great! Not that hard right?

Oh, but there’s one more thing… It also has to be completely passive cooled with NO fans (not even case fans) and has to have no moving components whatsoever (except for the Blu-ray drive).
