Summary: This is a picky computer for memory, I tried memory from Corsair but my initial memory didn't post the motherboard. Then it worked then did random restarts during windows xp and ubuntu installs, ended up taking a four gig stick out of my 2010 mac mini.
Summary: UPDATE- I ended up returning this unit (and looking to upgrade to ID82 with i3 CPU instead). I'm lowering the original rating as well, as I feel the PC/CPU is underpowered for use as HTPC. After all the tweaking, I still wasn't able to get 1080 playback in VLC.
