I need the Intel i7-870 for a machine, mainly used for programming Java, Flash CS5, etc.
I would love to make a small form factor and silent machine but wonder if it is possible and adviseable.
These are my 2 favourites so far:
I target a CPU temp at 30 Grad degrees Celsius on Windows 7 idle. No overclocking needed.
Would you think shuttle can handle this or would you build your own? Is Mini-ITX possible to build a low-temperature system with i7? Do you already have an i7 running on a Mini-ITX. How about temperature?
Thanks for any advise guys.
