I have seen people take those 30$ mini itx cooler master cases before, add a corsair AIO 120mm, and then use a water block on the gpu and put it all on the same loop. If you don't overclock the CPU or GPU and have a fan with good static pressure you can get away with very little.

That's still like 20L cases

There are people who take Fractal Design Node 202's, which are 10L, put a full custom loop with GPU/CPU.

Custom watercooling CPU & GPU definitely costs upwards of $400, so I think price is ok-ish for those looking to get into quiet cooling solutions.
That being said, lack of water as thermal "tank" will result in higher CPU & GPU temps even with fans running.
I'd be interested in test results showing hardware temperature during load, since manufacturer's claim of 8700k and GTX1080 working fanless seems to be lacking details.

What I really would consider as upgrade is a energy saving tech that can charge a supercapacitor and later be used to charge phone, tablet, etc.

Reduced waste heat => cooler air => less AC usage

tfw people who've been in the community for ages still can't comprehend the process and cost behind small batch manufacturing by basement sized operations.

epic case, would buy if was my type of thing. I'd use it for HTPC epicness.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I like the vertical nature. Will make for some interesting builds. My first run-in with fanless SFF was Streacom and the heat pipes with ITX socket placement was a challenge on the ASUS board I used. I think the link in the OP needs to be corrected. I get a 404 error on it now.

The monsterlabo link is not working and I do not engage with Facebook content.

Super interesting concept though. I've seen the high end Fractal Node case builds and am blown away at the creativity of SFF cases these days. Passive is great until you begin to hear the whine coming from your electronics. I prefer a few fans running as they mask some of the high frequencies of other components.

the old link doesn't work anymore, go to their main page instead.

Linus just did a review on this case, seems pretty interesting, I would not buy it but I'm sure there is a target audience for this thing.
