I was getting tired of my WDTV Live not working properly, and I had a few parts kicking around. Some OCZ memory and the 430W PSU from another build. So why not create a 2nd HTPC! Tried to find a small case that would still fit a standard ATX power supply and the Milo did it! Picked a cheap Pentium and H87 board as I am not going to be overclocking, this is just for video playback. Found a refurbished 128GB M4 and threw in an old DVD-RW (why not!) It all went together with no problems although the cabling is pretty tight between the PSU and optical drive. Happy with the result!
