I hope they fixed the fan noise issue. The last one had some negative customer reviews on Amazon due to noisy fan.

Speaking of living room PC's.....
When was the last time we saw a new media case with a screen built in to the front. I'd be interested to see what the latest is on them.

I have one that I bought for my Bedroom as a HTPC, I needed to be quite obviously so I fitted a SSD. The fan noise is outrageously for such a small unit but I fixed it by simply leaving the side of the case off! That done you can hardly hear it at night, although annoyingly when on standby the LED flashes and is possible equivalent to a 10,000 watt bulb!

Ways to deal with LEDs:
Tip-ex, Duct Tape or dremmel :P
I used an Exact-o-knife to disconnect the power to LEDs in my case fans.

Though is you want fanless zero moving parts your better building your own. there are some Asus MB with giant coolers and if you need a fan then go quitepc they have some good ones with 9DB.

There are no LED wires as it's all built on the board however black insulation tape works (-;

Could have built my own, but it is a small well specced bit of kit that mounts to the back of my TV, unlike your recommendation of a "Giant Cooler"

True when I was looking at the E-350 I was more interested as using as media server. Hence big heat sing plus one huge slow spinning quite fan.
