It's really OT now....

Don't save any money when buying the cases. Our 1U cases have a very well
designed cooling concept, i can run any CPU with a passive cooler inside.
I ususally use an active cooler anyway, though - just to paranoid. The CPU
doesn't get warmer than 40 degrees Celsius. The fastest/hottest I tried was
a 1GHz athlon.
