Mektu Mods decided to get aggressively passive, and design a silent PC.  Not simply a quiet, or barely noticeable PC, but a dead silent, completely passively cooled PC.  When they were done, they had a Opteron 170 @ 2,4 GHz and GeF orce 6800GT inside a case built of some of the biggest heatsinks you have seen used in (or on) a PC.  They also decorated it, and it is worth checking out!

“I have wanted to build a fully passively cooled computer case since I had my first Athlon Thunderbird 800 MHz. That time the fan noise was amazingly high, and manufacturers didn´t much care about the noise levels, and didn’t offer products for building a quiet PC. Nowadays a quiet PC is not much of a challenge to build, but totally silent?”
