Silent Running

Intro

It's forever bothered me how much noise desktops make. Fans just seem to blow the air round and round and the general setup seems poor.

The Idea

Design and hack together a better setup, with large heat sinks on the exterior and heat pipes to move the heat energy away from the hot bits. Plan is to engineer to the worst case scenario of hot, high end CPU and GPU running on a warm day.
