Default New HTPC Build

I will be building my HTPC this weekend. Here is a group shot of all the goods. The system is a bit overkill I think but I don't mind. I'll definitely use it for gaming also.

I'd say a tad overkill for a HTPC. For gaming though, it'll be a blast. I've never used a Desktop (HTPC) Lili in my builds, let us know how it goes.

I'll post more pics once I stuff all this gear in the case.

This HTPC will be used on this HT...

Well I managed to stuff everything in. I'll start hooking up cables tomorrow.

Should I leave the PSU in this position or flip in around so it gets cool air?

I'd love to see some temp tests once you get it all closed up.
