Yes, the pc is noisy. It's not a silent one.I got the newsletter from ED, totally forgot this thread. ^^ This Mini PC even made it into the german heise-news:
Dragonbox will einen Mini-PC rund um die chinesische Phytium-CPU D2000 in den deutschen Handel bringen – sofern die Nachfrage hoch genug ist.www.heise.de
I still have no clue about this "Phytium D2000 ARMv8" CPU and how well it will perform. But it seems to be a good start if various Linux-Distributions support this Chip.
One Question: are these tiny fans loud? Some dB measuerements under load would be nice. everything over 40dB is bad imho.
