Not quite the normal HTPC case and build but I was bored and I did convince myself I may play a game on it one day :)

 

Would love to hear what you guys think.

Pic's are working fine for me. What interface are you using for movies?

 

Is the 2700k just a faster 2600k?

 

I'll get some pics up of the inside after I clean up wires. Had to swap my PSU out from a Silverstone 1500 to a Corsair AX750 (Silverstone was a spare from RMA) and wires are a lot shorter makes for an ugly mess

 

yes the 2700k is 100mhz faster then the 2600K (I'm told they are binned better for overclocking) I got it 5ghz stable while playing around with it before it was demoted to HTPC duties I leave it at 4.5ghz now for 24x7 use (really no need but temps are great and all.

I would believe the HDMI connection sounds better. The HDMI spec includes a larger frequency range of sound then the SPIDF fiber optic port. Your receiver should be creating more of the sound. I am told it should sound richer. I am not sure everyone can tell the difference between to the two.

Wow, that's a monster HTPC. Do you do any rendering/transcoding? If so, it should fly with that box.

 

Reminds me of Tim's x58 HTPC he built
