The extremely messy inside…. Please note the 300GIG Maxtor HD laying carefully on a bed of cables in the lower left corner. I am not going to move the box, and this way the HD makes less noise compared to if it was fastened in one of the drive bays.
…and, it serves as a self-destruct mechanism if somebody should steal my HTPC… 🙂
The 160GIG Seagate Barracuda is in one of the 5 1/4-bays mounted in a NoVibes drive kit. It is completely silent!

How’s the cooling on that?
Quite bad cooling… Bad to the point where the temperature controlled PSU ran its fans at full speed all the time. My HTPC has moved into another case. A huge one that is placed inside another cabinet in my living room.
