Is this idea practical? Or would this overheat?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My buddy wants to build a totally passive computer that will be doubled up as a HTPC.

Just as an experiment, would it be possible to build a all passive dual core Haswell pc?

Parts:
Core G3258, how much of an oc is possible? (would probably want to delid this chip)
No Fan CR-95C http://www.nofancomputer.com/eng/products/CR-95C.php#
8 or 16gb of DDR3 (would need low profile RAM to do this)
750ti passively cooled
Z97 motherboard or a cheap Z87
SSD, probably Samsung or Crucial

Would need maybe a 400 watt passive psu, ideally with high efficiency

Any recommendations on a case? Keep in mind that the case must have enough clearance for the larger passive cpu cooler.


Would this idea work or would it overheat, requiring low speed 1000rpm fans?




Edit:
Some data on the No Fan CR-95C:

Seems to be able to handle a slightly OC'ed i7 960 on Prime at 4 threads. That's why I think there may be some OC headroom in the G3258.
