thanks, I was comparing it to the EdgeRouter X and got confused. ER-X, even without AES-NI, would be plenty fast enough for my use case. Unfortunately, a common problem with them is hardware failure from overheating. With the way I have my gear setup, heat is a pretty big factor. Is there a list of BIOS/EUFI options for these thin clients? If I could tweak the voltage down a little bit it would probably be perfect for me.
