“Our Silent Home Server Build Guide continues with configurations using a mid-tower case and an ATX motherboard for even higher storage capacity with the same ultra-low noise objective. A system with nine hard drives was set up and tested… and a gaming variant of the same with an overclocked Radeon HD 5870 video card. Just how quiet can these systems be? Much quieter than you might think. ”

With a name like Silent PC Review it should come as no surprise that the focus of their system recommendations is on systems that produce as little noise as possible. Their latest build would be perfect for a home file or media server and is enclosed in a mid-tower case as opposed to an HTPC styled enclosure. That helps when you are planning on including up to nine HDDs, with a nice mod using elastic cord to reduce noise. Check out the full build here.
