You make it sound like the fans use up all the power! *grin* Actually,
the CPU fan and power supply fan use about 1.5W total! Also, the hard
drive uses a fraction of the power that the CPU uses, so a RAM drive
doesn't save a huge amount of power. I'll bet the UPS wastes more power
than the hard drive uses.
