I am very happy with this setup, I have only used it for a few minutes here in there do to lack of time but so far I am pleased. It runs nearly silent and cool as hell the CPU has not gone over 33C and the mother board sits around 34C. readding off ASUS Probe II. Boots up fast runs mult apps without hickups. Also ExpressGate is an awesome bonus, I am up and running skype/internet within 20 sec's. Anyone that has an ASUS mother board that supports it I highly recommend at least giving it a look.
