I haven't the slightest clue. Is there any way to find out?

Never mind. It most probably uses 2.4GHz.
If it is capable of sending 315-433MHz, I think I can tweak this "god-awful homemade switch" to work with your ZV.

Since the last time I posted in this thread, I am considering a different direction. I am going with one of the Richland APUs with a better mATX board. I am also going to look at a different cooler to mitigate heat issues.

As for the desktop, let's just say it will have an FX 9590 in it.

If you want a different direction you should consider an Intel 4670k or a 4770k if video editing/livestreaming. Spending almost 400$ on the one you listed is just silly considering it has worse ipc, uses over 2x power, and produces more heat.
It is possible Amd will make a solid product in the future but for now there really is no substitute especially when building a gaming rig.

As for the desktop, I am considering water cooling to mitigate the heat issue.

For the HTPC, I'll stick with AMD as it has served me well.

This past weekend, I had to crack open the HTPC and found one of the rear fans going out. I replaced the fan but am thinking about the issue of cable management inside this Silverstone case. Anyone got some pointers on that?
