    You were right Random;) If I remember, they are a 4GB kit of Gskill Ripjaws with like CAS6 timings for 1600, just without the spreaders so I don't run into cooler issues.

    Hmmm it would be neat for travel I guess but multiple PC networks (hardwired) no because the lack of dual nic ports. If it has a WAN port then a LAN port for say a unmanaged switch then it would be quite nice!

    I just bought it so i can't really say yet , and its my first mechanical keyboard(and the first mechanical keyboard i used so far) , the keys do feel very "light" after my old Microsoft Wireless keyboard 3000 v2.0 and very different , but the build quality is great .

    I did see your mouse on the picture of that little cute Nano router :toast:

    I bought it locally from the non-profit where I get most of my older computer stuff (such as all of the HPs I have). $5 for the motherboard/CPU, $15 for the RAM.

    WOW! Thats a good deal, If you decide to let it go, gimme a PM. I was looking for something like this this week for a Custom router setup. I ended up with a old P4 mATX combo but needed somthing a lot smaller.

    I'll think about it. I'm curious to see how it does for WCG (seems like it will be terrible) but I think it would make an interesting fileserver.

    With no fan, it runs at about 45-50C load--I put a nearly-silent 80mm fan on top of the heatsink and now it's 21-25C or so :D

    My latest iteration for main PC. This time going for a silent computer, still audible when crunching.. but when playing games you can't tell it's on:

    Specs:
    Arc Mini (fitted with Apache fans)
    i3 2100 (to be swapped later for a 2500K I have elsewhere)
    Asus P8Z77-M Pro
    16GB G.Skill Ripjaws (mixed Z and X)
    XFX DD Black Edition 7950
    Intel X25-E 64GB, Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 256GB
    Asus Xonar Essense STX

    That's a really attractive system :toast:
    Why no back fan? I'd think particularly with the i5 it could get hot like that...

    Well, the fewer fans on the case, the quieter. And at the moment temperatures are all looking really good (41C CPU load, 65C GPU load). 2500K may be hotter, but I'll probably aim for a modest 4GHz to keep it cool and quiet.
