    The DFI accepts DDR3/DDR3L, not sure about T730. I've got two 8G sticks of DDR3L so that should work.
    As to the fans, is it the CPU or PSU fan that is noisy? I see that some DFI boards have DC-in jack, that would be ideal.

    Quick look at the manual, the DFI uses 204 Pin RAM, so it's the laptop RAM just like the t730, and not 240 Pin desktop RAM.
    As for types, the t730 can only take DDR3L (so it has to say 1.35v) instead of DDR3 (1.5v). The DT122E should be able to work with anything from 1.25 to 1.5v. 16GB RAM modules should work in both cases (I have 32GB in my t730)

    I'm not concerned about the RAM but the noise and what can be done about it. Curious which fan is the noisiest, PSU or CPU.

    There's a separate thread covering the DT122BE.
    AFAIK the t730 has a metal enclosure around the DD3L RAM modules both as an EM shield and possibly as a passive heatsink, a single fan and has a large, passively cooled power brick. If it's peace and quiet, the t730 is the way to go. I would only pick the DT122E if you are really, really price sensitive or need a full height PCIe x16 slot.

    Thanks. I picked up this board instead: DFI ITOX BE171-77EN-427B 770-BE1711-100G Mini-ITX Motherboard | AMD RX-427BB | eBay
    BO $99 got accepted which I think is a good deal. Will put it in the Silverstone case I have laying around, and if it's still too loud then will think about the alternative cooling.

    It's a good deal when it's $125 or BO for a chassis + board, but if it's just a board, not so much. You can probably get an AM4 A320 chipset board and an Athlon 200GE APUs bundled for around that much, and it'll be better bang for the buck.

    I'm actually considering one of these + an external HDD as a little Plex server. Passmark score is quite good so it should handle burning subtitles just fine.
