With a passive power supply and big fans that must be possible for sure, its good to hear that DOm's machine uses the low noise parts, but it would be great if they also found their way to the finalized systems.

i did not said taht James MS makes noises. the orginal AMD Athlon II X2 240 2.80 GHz is modern cpu with a very good fan:

Domenico use other fan becouse he has a very extreme Groove, so he needs the fan and power supply he used.

and passive fanless CPU coolers are heavy and not good as the one with fan. The most powerd mixers and amplifiers have built-in fan. fans has no effect on MS sounds. The MS has two power supply. 1 with fan for PC parts and 1 fanless for audio Parts
