    If it's anything like the Zotac ZBox Nano then it's a noisy little bugger... which is what ruined the otherwise great Nano for me.

    The noise will be coming from the single 40mm fan on the cpu. If you use Brazos tweaker you can drop the voltages and put the fan noise to a minimum.

    Considering it will run flawless HD video and play Diablo 3...

    Typical! Bought an MSI WindBOX only yesterday after searching for a decent low-power home server for months.

    Still, I'm happy with what I got.

    Speaking of noisy, having a rather underpowered computer is still the only way to go. Like E350 or Atom. Unfortunately. But my guess, and hope is - not for too long. Still, if you're in for a nice little PC to play 1080 videos, any E350 can do that. Not Atom, though. At least not so smoothly. I have a need for something else, not playing videos...

    New toy from Intel. i3 CPU so much more powerful than Atom.

    I had an Atom compact PC. Built by Foxconn. It's a bit slow and noisy.
