[mythtv-users] Diskless EPIA w/PVR-350 (was: Problems with
lists at backslash.co.uk
Wed Jun 9 13:19:26 EDT 2004
After reading the discussion about using an EPIA based system as a front end
I did a little digging. I found the forums at http://linpvr.org/ to be very
There is a fan less case designed for the EPIA-M10000, I don't know if the
M9000 would work with it or not (perhaps a quick email to the manufacturers
would be an idea).
This case with a M10000 booting over the network coupled with the biggest
LCD monitor I can find is what I have planned for my bedroom. Silent, low
power and small.
hope this is of use to you.

I have an EPIA-m9000 in a travla 137. ok, so I have a disk and a dvd in
there, but even taking that into account it is far from silent. The cpu fan
makes a hell of a din. As for the case fan. They are both way too loud for
me and I'm really rather deaf.
So the question is; how did you make it silent? I did have a homebuilt case
with no fans at all (ZALMAN VGA heatsink on the CPU), but it got too hot for
my liking. Please, please, please tell me the secret!
