I've been running a Shuttle SK43G with 2.2Ghz AMD, silentPC fan, silent 250W
psu and replaced all the mobo fans with heatsinks for 3 years.
time to replace. The fan is still quiet, but now the case vibrates a
little, and the whole thing runs about 61 degrees - which isn't ideal.
I'd like to go fanless and cool. What I like about the shuttle is it's
size. The 1x PCI is fine, as is the VIA unichrome VGA & s-video out.
Any ideas on a small compact fanless (DEAD quiet) case & motherboard??
