Yes restricts upgradability but when you are not so much of a gamer it is not a big concern

Yeah, I've been striving for smaller builds, too.

I love how my latest build has literally zero cooler clearance. Good thing it's a Haswell Celeron!

Sorry, umm, you have to take the laptop apart and all that... not for everybody I guess.

 

It'd make another good learning experience. (Click to show)

Haha, yeah. If you have a can of compressed air, just point it at the vents and give it a puff or two, if dust comes out keep going, if nothing comes out, then it might be the thermal paste. Fixing thermal paste requires a disassembly, dust usually doesn't. It's also very possible that your PC is just giving up and entering the death cycle.

I do have one of those cans, actually. I should try it soon...but I still don't want to take the thing apart.

I remember when I replaced a DC jack on an Asus, you had to remove the cooler and heatsink too, because the assembly was right next to the jack. Good times.

Nothing I can do to help with that. As long as you are confident in your ability to work on electronics, and the basic knowledge about what you are doing and its limits, you should be fine. Might cost some money because you have to buy some thermal paste (local electronics store, like 10 bucks max).

Okie dokie!

I have even wackier stuff on my profile.

 Another set of cheapo builds, more up to date... built 3 of those over the summer. About 500 USD each, 1TB HDDs, 8GB of RAM (enough for basically anything). Pretty decent PCs considering the price.

 

I think the CPU was an A10 8800k.

Both of the ones you mentioned are $999 and up. Not affordable at all!

The Geek Source is only a few hundred dollars, right? But I don't think it's something I can order and have at my door within a week.
Yeah iono. Like I said, I don't have much experience with music servers since I don't plan to use one any time soon and the only other person who I know has one uses a Mac Mini server.

Due to the lack of on-board connectors, internal cabling gets really interesting, too! (Click to show)

Very nice. Always get excited when there is a build with utterly no waste.

Hey, my HTPC uses the N400's younger brother, the N200! It's hard to make out in this picture though.

This build cost $324 to build, but the 1 TB and 2 TB HDDs and the power supply I already had lying around, so it doesn't count.

 

I think this one was a Celeron G1820. Adequate for 10-bit!

N400 wasn't that great of a case, but for the price it was darn good. The steel used was too soft imo, threads stripped too easily.
