    Understandable Perhaps just when running your rig?
    People that buy OEM systems think Linux was a Charlie Brown character, a registry is something you see at target to buy shower gifts, RAM is a Dodge truck and a hard drive is DC at rush hour.

    i normally leave my rig on (its a print/file/media server for my house) and it idles at just over 40W and circulates the air in my room but when crunching its up over 160-170, and i know that it dosnt sound like much but 24x7 it ends up being around $20-25 more a month and without needing the cooling its a little much right now

    yah if we get another cold streak ill start again since it is cheaper than heating a whole house but as of now my house is 60-65, and a month ago my tv died then last week the alternator in the car died so saving money counts. i have 2 more units to finish (they were over 80%) then im done with bionic, for now
