    That is beautiful! How noisy is it? It seems it might also be good for gaiming?

    I was shocked when you opened it up and there's actually some room for airflow... looks legit.

    so beautiful, can I have it ;). Does that finish pick up fingerprints like crazy?

    Also, I think I see an SDD in there, but is there also a HDD?

    edit: oh durr.. specs at the top. I was distracted by the shiny

    Not sure I'd want something that emits that much light under the TV like that, but damn if it doesn't look fantastic. With the light turned off I'd be all over it.

    Thats pretty awesome....
    I'm assuming those are a bunch of nas?

    One question... how did you integrate the imon display to be useful with XBMC.
    I have one but I found the sofftware to be dated, and the remote to be terrible.
    But if it can be useful, I'd like to set it up... so it opens up my options as I have yet
    to find an itx board that supports intel CIR. Currently we use e home receivers.. on the two htpcs in our household.

    This would be much appreciated.

    I've been using PLEX and have been happy with it, but this XBMC build has something drawing my attention. I figured out what it its...you're GREAT custom work!

    It's the Logitech DiNovo Mini. It connects via bluetooth, and is super useful for HTPC setups. You get a keyboard and a little touchpad (and the touchpad can turn into a scroll pad, essentially), so it's great for paging through something like Plex or XMBC as well as typing out searches (I use it to bring up Youtube videos quite often). It's tiny, so you wind up thumb typing, that's why I say it's best for an HTPC. I've never regretted spending the money for mine, and I've had the same one since 2008.

    Is there any construction manual for your case? It looks really good. Or did you just glue some plexiglass together, put mirror foil on and hoped for the best?

    Thanks, I guess they don't make it anymore since it doesn't seem to be available anywhere.

    That is sad. The logitech k400 is a much cheaper, but also much less fancy, alternative. I use that one on a couple of other front ends, and it's a pretty good keyboard/touchpad.

    That's what I use, I was just thinking I wanted to get a smaller one for the family room. I ended up getting another k400 since I know it works well.
