The World's Fastest Htpc Gaming Rig 2011

I have reached my goal of building the fastest HTPC for less than £800!
I was able to overclock the CPU up to 4.8GHz on modded HTPC air cooler!
For a daily use I lower the CPU speed to 4.725GHz.

  1. Like the HTPC project... excellent presentation.

    Soundgraph sells some LCD filters that will make your Veris front panel more readable. For sale here.

  2. its too loud, I thought the whole point to an HTPC was to have a quiet box that you could watch movies on.
