    Phoronix: Airtop3 Manages A Passively-Cooled Core i9 9900K + Quadro RTX 4000

    The folks at CompuLab have achieved another engineering masterpiece with a passively-cooled PC with an Intel Core i9 9900K processor and up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics. Coming out of CompuLab, the PC is also Linux-friendly...

    For the price and the size of that product, honestly I'd prefer a slow silent fan in there. Even small amounts of air movement can do wonders.

      Agreed, but there are situations (mainly dusty / dirty environments) where you do not want airflow into the chassis. Also places like recording studios where even a noctua fan is too noisy. So there definitely is a market for these products, even if it's not you and me. That said, they do make some *really* nice hardware, world class stuff from this company for sure.

        If it has NVidia graphics, how can it be Linux friendly?

          If it was Ryzen 2600 (or better) with RX 570 8GB (or better), then I'd go for it.

            I'm waiting for AMD CPU/GPU model, too.

              What a strange CPU choice. Didn't Intel offer a low power, 8C16T i9? Using a overclockable model on a fanless chassis does not compute to me.

                Seems like a solution in search of a problem. Place the hardware on the other side of the wall, and cable through. The dusty environment aspect -- you'll still need filters as dust settles, so it's not a complete solution as-is, for a hot cpu like a 9900K.

                  You don't seem to have a real grasp of the industrial work environments where these kinds of computers are used.

                    they must be sponsored by Intel or Nvidia I guess.. I hate that they're not AMD based
