Default Building a Super-Quiet and Storage-Packed Server PC

In some of our recent HTPC-esque content, one thing I keep harping on about is that it's easier to build a kick-ass HTPC or home server than ever - one that's replete with lots of storage, runs quiet, and can handle any type of media you toss at it. But even so, no PC should be built in haste, because the number of options available for each component out there is high, so to build the perfect home server, research needs to be done.

Read the rest of our post and discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
