I would have to check if AMD finally fix their drivers for H264 multisliced files. Other wise this would be useless for HTPC.

Would have to re-encode dozens and dozens of files just because ATI doesn't know how to write a driver properly.

H264 multisliced files are rare, but i have bunch of them

example of the issue with ati drivers

multisliced files are files that are encoded in a way that each frame is not whole. frame can be in 2 or more parts or slices. these slices are displayed at the same time, so they act like full frame.

ATI drivers have issues with these type of files.

I must not have any multisliced files, or I don't have that problem.

Do you notice the fan while "under load" (movie playback for example).
Nope, it's pretty quiet.

That's tiiiiiny. Awesome little build. One thing is getting a normal PC right, but getting a HTPC ticking over quiet and smooth is an art form.
