G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's RAM. It's inexpensive. Shipping was free.

Cons: It could be more inexpensive? It could be free? They could pay me for an endorsement?

Other Thoughts: In my experience, you can't go wrong with G-Skill RAM. Buy it.

SeaSonic Platinum Series SS-400FL2 Active PFC F3 400W ATX12V Fanless 80 PLUS Platinum Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Mated with a 35W TDP Core i3, an SSD for the system drive and a low RPM HDD for bulk storage, my HTPC is quite literally silent.

And sips power. 35W - 40W max at full load.

Cons: Expensive for a 400W power supply.. But that is to be expected of a platinum power supply, much less a FANLESS platinum power supply.

Other Thoughts: Might be expensive, but if you want a completely silent build, it's more than worth the money.

OTOH, If you're OK with a teeny, tiny bit of fan noise, you can spend a little less and opt for a different P./S with a mostly quiet 120MM fan and more wattage. For example, I have an Antec EarthWATTS 750 in another rig, and I can barely hear that P/S from across the room. It was about the same price I paid for this.

Basically, the question comes down to how much is total silence worth to you? For me, it was completely worth this price for an HTPC build.

5 out of 5 eggs SILENT 04/05/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP 80mm Sleeve Low Profile CPU Cooler

Pros: Used in an HTPC buld with an extremely low power (35W TDP) Core i3-4130T.

Cannot hear it. AT ALL. Temps in the 30s under normal load conditions.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I suspect it won't work very well with higher TDP processors, but a great solution for low power rigs.

Between this, a fanless power supply, an SSD and a quiet, low RPM HDD, I quite literally cannot hear my new HTPC at all.
