    Mine is almost silent but don't have it on 24/7. Has anyone upgraded theirs to 16GB and if so what memory did you put in it?

    Been running mine for a year as a HTPC - Perfect and silent :)

    Just found an article that says the N36L as well as the N40L can be upgraded to 16GB as well (HP Proliant MicroServer)

    I am tempted to get another...

    I got mine July 2011 and has been running 24/7 non stop with 8GB ram, it is sitting on a shelf in our spare bedroom come study/office and never had a problem with it.

    I did see they are back on offer with the £100 cash back and was thinking of getting another one.

    Just to echo what everyone else has said they are quite and for the dosh great value.

    I brought a couple of them, with the £100 cashback, each ESXi Host has 16GB RAM and 4 NIC's.
