The t hread about free installation of 10 has piqued my interest.

Which is better, a small form factor PC running a 64bit version of 10
using 8Gigs RAM, or a full size case running a 32bit version with 4gigs?

Alternatively, I ordered 8gigs for my computer that had the bad memory**
Does that mean I need a bigger fan?

Do they sell more powerful fans that will fit the same spot.  It's only
about 3x3"!!

It's already running borderline hot, according to Speccy, but when I put
in the new RAM I was going to clean out the dust, which I can see
through the plastic grill on the front of the box.

I don't thnk there is room in a SFF case for a second fan.
