How Neuros Built Their Nearly Silent HTPC

JoeBorn writes “Neuros has a blog posting discussing how they created their latest ‘thin’ HTPC to be nearly silent. Instead of using a net-top architecture (Atom or the like) they used a full 2.7GHz CPU and put their effort into making that nearly silent. The article talks about their efforts on fan selection, placement, control and vibration dampening. This route was chosen to ‘give more headroom’ for CPU hungry apps (web and otherwise) including Adobe Flash. Their solution costs $279; is this an appropriate trade-off for a device powering your TV?”
