So this is the base for my HTPC. It does what I want with flying colors. I'm using XBMC as my media player. XBMC still has issues with Amazon Prime and Netflix, I for now I'm using custom tiles with OblyTile to launch IE to Amazon Prime and Netflix websites in fullscreen mode so it still has the App-ish feel. The Fractal Design Mini is a little bigger that I thought. It's really closer to a mid-size tower. I just picked up another 3TB hdd because the other one is almost full. I'll put another pic once that one is in.
