The CompuLab Airtop article was one of the most viewed on Phoronix in January. For those that forgot about it or didn't see the original article, "Airtop is a small and silent desktop with very high performance. The key word is silent. Not 'with a specially designed fan that is very quiet'. Airtop has no fans at all, yet it can dissipate 200W – enough to cool a Xeon CPU and a professional (or gaming) graphics card. Airtop cools itself by generating airflow using no moving parts, just the waste heat from the CPU and the GPU."
The Airtop sent over by CompuLab has a Core i7 5775C Broadwell CPU, solid-state storage, and GeForce GTX 950 all while being passively cooled!
I'm super excited to begin testing out the CompuLab Airtop on Linux and it looks like this silent PC will be arriving on Monday, so by the end of next week should have my initial results to share.

Stay tuned for a ton of exciting Linux tests. If you are a member of the premium community, feel free to share with me any specific test requests or other ideas you might have.
