    Any suggestions to build a half decent HTPC/Kodi Box from scratch? ...

    No particular budget, only factor is low noise so not looking for big GPU with a big fan but still 4K if possible ??

    Holy grail would be a totally ambient cooled rig if at all possible!

    If you are not bothered about games then you cant go wrong with an Intel Nuc, the latest spec ones use Kabylake which has addition, off cpu encoding for 4K, even on the low end ones.

    Another alternative would be a ShieldTV. They are supposed to be excellent in running Kodi. :)

    Nice little pc's the NUCs, there's a few little custom pre built boxes around but not many, fancy building my own though, hopefully with ambient cooling.

    The DNK-H mimi pc is a nice small build. Can also just get the case on its own
