    Saw this a while ago and thought it quite interesting. Fanless case that seems to work quite well.

    Nice, I'd always like the Zalman cases & wondered how they'd cope with newer chips, it's always the cost that's the big down side though (well, apart from the fact the case is fugly & the space issues!)

    EDIT: Reading through it seems the only real thing making it silent is the CPU cooler (as silent PSUs are available), it's just an oversized Zalman flower really, I wonder if you could DIY one up from a heatpiped cooler by adding some extra fins somehow? hhhmmmmm...

    Meh, they stole my idea for how to fit a PSU into a compact case

    And they did a worse job, since I can still fit a hard drive in mine
