I am quite unsure why you'd get such a powerful CPU for an HTPC, I would personnally go for something a fair bit cheaper, which runs fairly cool. Something like an AMD Athlon II X4 600e which would be plenty for an HTPC, it could then be paired with a nice 785G mobo and you'd pretty much be in business. You could of course get yourself a GPU instead of using the onboard (even if it can do HD).
