They say good things come in small packages. And they do, things like my Hardkernel Odroid U2 which comes in a tiny package measuring 48 x 52 mm, about half the size of a credit card sans the heat sink. Even with the heat sink the unit is still tiny, measuring a midget like 59 [...]
A few days ago I shared my thoughts about using Hardkernel’s ODROID-U2 for an Android based HTPC. I decided that it’s such a good idea that I’m going to try and build an Android based HTPC. The plan is to build an Android based HTPC that offers as many full fat HTPC features as possible. [...]
Every part so far Pt I, Pt II, Pt III, Pt IV, Pt V, Pt VI, Pt VII, has covered all the kit that you need to build a sweet super quiet and silent HTPC. By now you should be able to choose the right parts to build your super quiet HTPC. In this last [...]
So a quick recap what we have covered so fa in Pt I it was about nailing down what you want from your HTPC, Pt II was about building vs buying, Pt III covered cases, Pt IV was all about fans, Pt V covered motherboards, CPUs, & CPU coolers, Pt VI was all about RAM, [...]
Flash back time, Pt I of this guide covered deciding what you want in a HTPC, Pt II was all about building vs buying, Pt III was about cases, in Pt IV we covered cooling fans, and Pt V covered motherboards, CPUs, & CPU coolers. This time in Pt VI we look at RAM, GPUs, [...]
So far this guide has covered deciding what you want in a HTPC in Pt I, then Pt II was all about building vs buying, Pt III covered cases, then in Pt IV we covered cooling fans. Now in Pt V I’ll cover motherboards, CPUs, & CPU coolers.
In Pt I we nailed down what we wanted from our HTPC, then in Pt II I looked at building vs buying, and Pt III was all about choosing the perfect HTPC case if you chose to build. This time in Pt IV of this HTPC build guide it’s all about fans, what too look [...]
So Pt I of this HTPC build guide covered nailing down what you want from your HTPC because that will help you in Pt II of the guide which was all about deciding whether to build or buy. If you have chosen to build then you will have the fun task of shopping for some [...]
In Pt I I discussed nailing down what you want your HTPC to do because that is going to help you decide whether to build or to buy which is today’s topic in Pt II of this HTPC build guide.
This post is the first post in a series on building a silent HTPC. Over the next 8 days I’ll post the rest of the guide in parts. This guide is meant to be an introduction to building a silent HTPC with off the shelf parts. First I want to clarify what this guide is [...]
