As far as I am aware all EPIA fan-cooled boards come with the same nasty, 
overly loud (25dB) fan - if you want a really quiet system the first thing to 
do is junk the original CPU fan and buy a nice quiet one. I got a SilenX 60mm 
fan with a 60-->40mm adaptor and it's _much_ quieter. I have a diskless 
SP1300 running front/backend with mysql on the boot/nfs server. I have two 
tuners: a PVR 150 and a DVB-T USB stick and have no problems with CPU load. 
The PVR 150 uses about 9-10% CPU when recording.
