it would indeed, I think 1.1v would give 2200Mhz, which is a decent 3500+ speed rating. Pair that with some good BH-5 (less heat than TCCD, really it does) and a low prifile heatsink with a low speed fan ducted out the back and you got a hell good HTPC there.

That would be a sweet base for a HTPC with grunt
I dont think an HTPC could ever use that much grunt ??, I have a P4 2.53 in a Coolermaster HTPC case on a 3rd hand Asus P4S533-VM and 512MB cheeeeeeeep DDR 400 that does the trick very well and is near totally silent after getting the fans right

It depends what you want your HTPC to do. I've put off building one because I just can't find a setup that will do everything I need without being noisy. CPUs are barely fast enough for the things I want to do, and until the 7800 was released there was no video card good enough either

Oh I see what you mean, you want to game on it too

I would have liked that but its just too darn expensive cos I would end up with my main rig with my X800 then ANOTHER rig , I think I will wait till the PS3 comes out

Nice one!

The Freezer64 also makes a great chipset cooler

Hmmm seeems I have a lot to learn re HTPC and HD

The freezer 64 IMHO would have to be the best value/performance cooler ever made, only complaint I have is the base is BAD = lots a lapping
