Here’s a few pics of my latest with the top off, minus the chest hairs…
The HDPlex H5 case is very well built and is a pleasure to work with, top quality. :thumb:
I have used the Intel Core i3-6100T CPU reducing the TDP to under 35 watts.

HTPC / Minimserver build (HDPlex H5 + HDPLEX 100W Linear Power Supply) from Computer Audiophile Forum

Original Review is from Computer Audiophile Forum

My old QNAP NAS installed with Minimserver and KODI. As the hardware is outdated and not powerful enough to handle HEVC 4K, I have choose to build my own one.

Building process is really straight forward. Remember to choose the GX16-2 connector for the case. The Nano 250W DC-ATX must be placed close enough to the GX16-2 connector. Power connection chain as below

100W LPS (19V XLR output) -> GX16-2 connector on the case -> Nano 250W DC-ATX (19V input) -> Motherboard/SATA power connector

Configuration
HDPlex H5 Gen2 case for passive cooling (Can handle 95TPW CPU)
HDPlex 100W LPS (Clean power is important for both Hifi and AV purpose)
HDPlex 250W DC-ATX (Convert the 19V output from LPS into MB/CPU/SATA power)
Gigabyte M.ATX G1 Sniper M7
Intel i5-6500 Skylake (65TPW, CPU power should able to handle HEVC 4K)
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit
Crucial MX200 M.2 500G SSD (Make it simple without SATA cable)
Broadcom 1G Fiber LAN card with SFP (For LAN ground isolation)
Elfidelity Rainbow Sugar 2 (For noise absorption)
