Thomas,

It's a barebone system, so you need to add a few extra bits yourself.

What I paid for the whole thing:
GB-BXi7-4770R i7-4770R = €569
Corsair Vengeance DDR3L 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) CMSX8GX3M2B1600C9 = €84.5
Samsung 120GB 840 EVO SSD = €79.49
Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit (UK, OEM) = €84.50

Total = €817.49 incl. 21% VAT

It can be quite noisy under full load. Also, the core temperatures get pretty high, but are still within Intel spec safe zone.
I was looking for something really small, so this fits the bill perfectly! :) It's MUCH smaller than the next step-up in form factor with comparable performance...

Btw, I'm using this as a network render node only. There's no display attached to it. I boot it through Wake-on-LAN and control it through VNC.

Btw, the performance of my network rendering setup (i7 3930K + E5-1650 + i7 4770R) is now the equivalent of a 215 fps camera bench score. ;)
