That looks really cool man, shaken not stirred :cool: wish I had the confidence to do a proper water cooling system. Not so much the CPU, but triple or even dual GPU's might be a challenge for a n00b like me.

our new HTPC cabinet. Well, really it's just new to us though i did add the pull out shelving for the components.



Edit: sorry for the sideways cell picture. fixed

Fixed the angle. The picture is still crud. The room is just dark for my poor cell phone camera. Need to take the picture with a real camera :p.

I think he means lack of airflow. Doesn't look like any of the components get much air.

aviphysics Jan 3, 2012 02:29 PM

There is a blower fan on top of the amplifier which gives pretty good air flow and the air flow from the blower feels cool (in the picture it sits just next to the HDMI splitter/switch and blows out the front). There is also a vent in the top of the unit. Additional Denon says there amps have sophisticated thermal management stuff that will shut down the receiver before it is hot enough to damage itself. The receiver also never runs anywhere close to full power. I suspect it never pushes much more than a few watts to each speaker (the front channels are medium sized bookshelf speakers). I am also only using 4 of the 7 channels.

The HTPC draws it's air from the bottom and uses about 50W at max load measured at the wall (Athlon II x2 240, laptop HD, BD-ROM, Radeon 6450). The CPU does run a little hot cause I would rather the CPU fail some day then listen to its fan (under full load it hits about 55C). The HTPC has been running in that case for over a year already with the receiver sitting directly on top without any problems.

The air around the xbox does not feel especially warm and it has several inches on either side and about a an inch above though it doesn't have any vents on top.

The HDMI splitter/switch uses very little power.

The Wii does sit in the top drawer under the the HTPC but we leave the drawer open when it is in use.

I should also mention that there is a good several inches behind the shelving unit.

I just don't see it having any problems do to heat.

The one issue that I did have is that the xbox 360 responds to my windows remote. This was easily solved by taking off the front face plate and blocking the sensor with a piece of aluminum foil.

yea; as you can see I take my console(s) thermal limitations very seriously :D


aviphysics Jan 4, 2012 02:26 PM

I would be worried about them falling over.

BTW... if you get one more xbox and 2 more screens you can play Forza 4 in surround :p

Arrowslinger, nice case :bleh:

Its ok I got the green light from the wife on the new ATI card :drool:

xfire isn't bad, but I have to say games seem smoother with a single card.

Arrowslinger Jan 5, 2012 05:44 PM

My other is x16 slot, running at x4 so I am thinking not even worth dropping another 5870 in.

The summer of 2007 -- tight and hot. :bleh:

demo Jan 6, 2012 06:37 AM

Excuse the crap image quality:



Meteor_of_War Jan 6, 2012 08:17 AM

What are temps like for those GTX 580's in tri-sli?

demo Jan 6, 2012 08:37 AM

Fine at 900/2050, but as you can see I have 2 120mm fans blowing on them from the front, and theres another installed on the side panel blowing onto the cards. And what you cant see is, I put 2 small rubber cubes between the cards to separate them a bit, without them theyre sandwiched together too close and it restricts air flow.
