Fanless chassis. Check out the massive heatsink on the bottom of the unit. It's hard to tell how a heatsink in this location would be very efficient....not enough info yet. Hard drive sounds would be the only noise :D

I cannot link directly to it....it's in the "what's new" section.

Maybe I'm dense but I don't understand how the cpu is cooled. In the picture, the cpu hs is shown with the fan removed. Where is it? Unless the cpu connects somehow to the hs on the bottom, it's not fanless. If someone sees somthing I'm missing, please tell me. =p

I have a Scythe passive case & it works a treat! Spookily silent also!
72'c for CPU at full load for 6 hours (in 20'c ambient).
