Post your Fanless build.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am planning to build a fan-less computer, I need some designs. Thanks.

Also I will rate who has the best design and build quality.

Entirely fanless would be a challenge as even passive heatsinks need some form of airflow. However, I have been interested in this for a while as well.

PSU
Seasonic X-400 or X-460

GPU
Sparkle GTS 450

or

Gigabyte HD 5770 GV-R577SL-1GD

I also have a Arctic cooling Accelero S1 Rev 2 cooler I will be putting on my HD 6870 eventually. However, it will use the airflow of my FT02 case. My build is not fanless.

CPU cooler
Megahalems passive?

Thermalright HR-02

There are lots of choices as far as CPU. I have wondered if one of the slower sandybridge chips like the i5-2300 would stay nice and cool.

As you can see I don't have a complete build figured out but I have been eyeballing a lot of the parts.

Thanks for your input, let me know if you ever build a fanless PC, I would be very interested in looking at it.
