    7TB's of storage might hold a few movies,.......
    FYI, I have one external 4TB drive (3.63 TB actually) with 3.3 TB of 90 file folders of DTS-Master or TrueHD flicks. That 90 folders of flicks holds some sets as well, i.e., Star Wars (almost 200 gbs), LOTR (about 100 GBs) and the Harry Potter flicks (176 Gbs). If I add one more HD flick to that drive Win 7 paints it red!

    So a #2 2TB file in the old HTPC was taking up the slack on HD Master and TrueHD flicks. They are all still there but inaccessible right now (last night I took apart the old PC, and dumped the case with CPU/MB, and what could be a ratty PSU now). With the added in 4.5 TBs (some on the 2TB drive holding the OS, another 2TB drive and a 1TB drive) I can even divide drives of DTS/DD flicks from Master and TrueHD files. I use 4-by Q-DIR (with 9 Tabs) to manage the files and print lists when needed.

    Q-Dir is must for massive file management. Teracopy moves and manages where the files are. These two freebies are invaluable (but my version of Teracopy is $ Pro).

    Back again, because the new HTPC is getting a secondary upgrade, now! I had 4 x 4GB 1600 memory in my PC (same m/b) and upgraded to 4 x 4GB 1866 for $84 and some change. So the HTPC is getting 4 x 4GB 1600 memory now!

    hate to say it but the 1866MHz memory won't give ya much better performance if any. You could have probably overclocked your old memory and saved $. Any monor performance gain will not be noticed at 1866<Hz compared to 1600MHz. In a matter of fact, depending on the app, 1600MHz could get better performance at tighter timings. Instead of getting1866 memory, you should have gotten a small SSD for your OS and put all your data on the other drives. You can get a 60G SSD under $100.

    Pooh, pooh it all you want but for $84, I got rid of 1333 in the HTPC and got the 1866 in mine. The new 1866 chips are also much tighter, and dropped the m/b temp about 3-5C. That alone makes it better. Oh, and the HTPC wasn't fazed or hotter from the 1600 memory because of the way that PC gets rid of heat. In my PC that 1600 memory made my video card and CPU warmer. It was twice the size of the 1866 chips.

    Never heard of memory making board or GPU cooler unless they( the old) had large heat spreaders(and the new had small heatspreaders)./ 3 degrees and 1% performance boost isn't worth $84. Especially seeing it is used as a HTPC, but if your happy! Me Happy!

    Exactly correct, the 1600 are huge, the 1866 nice and small. My PC is a lot more crowded than the HTPC so it makes mine much cooler, and the HTPC no hotter (because it cannot heat anything else there).

    Here, where we are way hot, 3-5C is a big difference as we slowly approach Summer.

    If the smaller RAM heat spreaders made that much of a change in your system then that's good.
    This indicates that you may want to consider upgrading your case fans to a high flow and low noise model in the future.
    Higher air flow cools even more.
    I like the Cougar brand due to their high quality and good warranty.

    They're HERE.

    Not sure where you are in the world, or if you can order from Newegg or not. But this brand is also in other stores.

    I order from Newegg often. My PC, which had those large heat spreaders, has an Antec Kuhler 920. It keeps the FX-8120 @ 28-40C according to Core Temp 8 adjusted degrees up (thank you Vinman). The included Antec ChillControlV software shows liquid temp at 41-42. Now running the smaller memory, I see 40 from Core Temp much less often, and it chilled the liquid from 43 to fluctuate between 41 and 42. I see that as great!

    The HTPC has an FX-6100 but uses the much faster, larger fan included with the FX-8120, run silent (standard is too loud). Because it uses Lian Li HTPC case, all the heat goes through its aluminum top or back against its aluminum top, and the rear case fans are set to high! That PC runs 28-35, sometimes as high as 40. That's with the larger heat spreaders, but it was the same before.

    This turned out to be a bigger temperature adjustment than I thought memory could do. I thought the 1866 would raise my PC's temps, not lower it!

    BTW, both PCs got M/B BIOS updates yesterday and today. The new BIOS update helps the CPU run better, and more accurately report in All CPU Meter. But a new nVidia GPU driver update for my video card via DriverMax (not available for Windows yet) has GPU Observer not doing well (it lost functions), so I now run GPU Meter (it works where the other does not). The HTPC's GT 430 still works with GPU Observer because it does not have the new nVidia GPU driver.

    Some DDR3 RAM runs at 1.65V and others run at 1.5V.
    Maybe you're running RAM that uses less power now.
    No mater how it's happening, I say it's good.

I might install one, in order to rip all of my DVDs onto my system. I plan on adding more HDD space as time goes, but for now 160gb will suffice.

    I am personally running an athlon II x2 250 processor, with a biostar A880g+, and 4 gigs of team elite ram... I also have it being cooled with a coolermaster 212 with dual enermax tb silence fans, along with the 200mm fan at the top of my antec, and a 120 mm fan sucking air in... I am averting the air upwards to vent out, and have negative pressure. In the 90 F degree room it sits, it doesn't get above 90 degrees ferenheit. I think a cross hair is overkill... lol My HTPC fits my needs, though. And to each their own!

    The GT 430 1GB GPU from the old HTPC finally fried out as well, just like the old HTPC's M/B and CPU.

    So the new video card is a GT 520 2TB and does what the GT 430 did, but includes HDMI 1.4 versus 1.3 of the 430. My AVR and HDTV are not 3D so it does not matter for me, except for video speed. The GT 520 is faster.

    BTW, the GT 430 GPU was tried in another PC after video disappeared in the HTPC, and it no longer showed video, as well. The other PC is our server, it runs a hot (87-90C) GT 9800. But its old Pentium Duo CPU runs 38-40C consistently.
