If you're looking to build yourself a nice new PC with that Christmas money, look no further: I'm bringing back the Ars System Guide with three builds: the Thriftstation, the Workstation, and the Battlestation. https://t.co/Do5Hnfe6kk
@James_inthe_box @arstechnica ... with that said, I've only used the Celeron models. I know they have mobile i3 and mobile i5, but I haven't experimented with them. The only "big boy" fanless builds I have (two mobile i7 machines) are in Logic Supply chassis.
@James_inthe_box @arstechnica Should probably exchange it (or pull the heat sink yourself, clean it and the CPU, thermal paste it and reattach it).
