Check out my latest HTPC build

Post by eclark5483 »

Here are some images of the new nMediaPC 1800B HTPC I put together. I originally ordered a 250 watt power supply but it was DOA, so I have another on the way. Tested the new parts with a regular ATX power supply, and everything is working just fine. Just gotta wait for the replacement to get here to finish up. Some of the parts, like SSD and DVD burner, I borrowed from my old HTPC. The plan is to run Kodi for everything. I'm fairly new to Kodi, but a vet at building PC's, so I plan on doing a dual boot using both Windows 10 & Linux. Haven't decided what flavor of Linux to use yet. Gonna experiment with Kodi first and sort it all out. I'm not a heavy gamer, but I love the emulators, so I plan on using the HTPC for Netflix, my HD Homerun CableCard, Amazon Movies, Pandora, and various emulators. I was able to get the Inteset USB Internal Infrared Media Center Receiver installed in the case's infared window by filing down where the screw holes are and using a bit of super glue, and a hot glue gun for good measure. The motherboard only has 1 internal USB header, so I ordered the NZXT internal hub so that both front USB ports and the IR are functional. This will be connected to my 50" TV downstairs.

Complete parts list consists of:

nMediaPC 1800B HTPC Case

Ortek VRC-1000 MCE remote control

Inteset USB Internal Infrared Media Center Receiver

GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI motherboard

AMD A10-7860K CPU

8 GIGS OF Mushkin Enhanced Stealth ram

Noctua NH-L9a 92mm SSO2 CPU Cooler

FSP300-60FAG Power Supply

SYBA SY-CAB65008 Extender cable

NZXT Internal USB Hub Controller

Logitech K400 920-007119 Plus Wireless Touch Keyboard

2x Logitech F710 Gamepads

ASUS 24X DVD Burner

512Gig Samsung 850-Pro SSD drive

Now onto the images.

First is an image of how I have the IR reciever installed

Image

I was worried about clearance so I ordered a Noctua low profile fan. It's whisper quiet and leaves PLENTY of room for the lid and for air to get in and cool it off.

Image

Here is an image of what it looks like with everything installed. Haven't cleaned up the wire mess yet, because I am, of course, still waiting on the power supply replacement.

Closer look at rear I/O panel.. gotta love having dual HDMI!!

What's nice, is I only need to make 2 connections to the back. One for the power, and one for the HDMI to the TV. Everything else is controlled wireless from the comfort of the couch.
