Passively-cooled CPU Thermals (Part 2)

In the first Passively-cooled CPU Thermals post I looked at how the completely fanless Streacom DB4 I built performed under various CPU loads.  A question over on Silent PC Review asked how the thermal curve looked when the CPU was unloaded.  Good question — let’s find out! It seems logical that a passively-cooled computer that […]

Passively-cooled CPU Thermals

The Completely Silent Computer I built relies entirely on passive cooling.  Some folks are keen to know how well (or poorly) it works in the real world.  Can it adequately cool a loaded system, or does thermal throttling make it pointless?  Well, it’s time to find out. As can be seen in these images, the […]
