    W1zz, you do have a direct high-capacity power connection to the electric company, right?

    That's what I heard it takes to run them.

    Or a bloom box.

    He's the king of cutting edge hardware. He doesn't need a weener. He has a piece of hardware that does that for him.

    Does it draw 300W? Thats all we need to know.

    Better yet, provide us a Kill-A-Watt picture of the rig running idle... that will be enough.
