K45 shuttle mobo has no undervolting or underclocking; OCing to max adds about 10W (1.6ghz vs 2.21Mhz) so will most likely just run it at 1.6ghz unless CPU becomes bottleneck

I'm converting my NAS into HTPC I think
this interface beats the crap out of the classic XBMC and certainly beats popcorn hour

So, install the FreeBSD distro and afterwards install the XBMC thingy, or how exactly does this go?

both are separate solutions; if you want a NAS to hide away: FreeNAS
if you want a HTPC either the XBMC live! CD or go Windows XP; some linux knowledge required to use XBMC linux version to add NAS functions
