Attempts to use the walls of the system unit as a cooling radiators were made several times – one of the first made with the idea of the South Korean company Zalman. The graphics processor, chipset and motherboard CPU in this case transferred its heat energy via the large radiator heat pipes. The German company Deltatronic has released workstation PC Silentium! X99, which is able to dispense with the fan in the cooling system not only through the use of silent power supply capacity of 550 watts, but also thanks to the cooling system with two large heatpipes that can dissipate up to 240 watts of heat energy totally silent.
The entire side wall system unit acts as a large heat sink, through which the aluminum bar with two grooves for the heat pipes are attached radiators GPU and CPU. The presence of grooves on the guide bar allows you to adjust the graphics card at the time of assembly.

In its basic configuration the system unit is 1990 euros, but well-equipped system can cost several times more expensive. For storage there are separate enclosure with passive heatsink.
