Personally, id order more storage since its an HTPC than bling. BR rips are huuuggeee!

Then again, if you have a server then no need for extra storage for the HTPC.
I've got 35.5TB of storage right now and I'm adding another twelve to this build so I should be ok on that :)

I surely wouldn't want a bunch of lights shining onto my TV/living room when watching a movie in the dark...

Not sure what hardware you have for this HTPC, but maybe look for silent fans and passive heatsinks?
The HTPC will be under the top stand so there won't be any glare, I still plan on doing a mod to the entertainment stand and mounting alot of LED's to the back of it to shine behind the tv while watching at night.
