I bet that this case would be at least $800 ... and would weight tons .. If you want fully silent PC then it is fine .Being able to cool a Ryzen 3950x and a geforce 2080Ti without any fans/noise isn't just a party trick.
This has real world applications for a quiet computing if true
Even with 2 140mm fans blowing at 500 rpm the noise should be extremely quiet.
500 rpm is below the minimum settings for many 140mm case fans which appears to be a practically inaudible 10 decibels.
Having said that I will still wait for a review before buying.
Agreed.I bet that this case would be at least $800 ... and would weight tons .. If you want fully silent PC then it is fine .
But IMO if you want to use 500rpm fans in it , then use water cooling and set the fans at 500 rpm as well on radiators . and fill that case with radiators at the same total price . and choose Radiators with more spacing to lower the Air pressure needed to cool them.
use 3x140 or 3x180 radiators .. each at around $100 .. you can put like 4 of them for $400
Technically, if the radiators are inside the case, then without filters, dust can enter the case. Because major mode of heat exchange is through heating of the air, irradiation is minuscule. Airflow is the king, a filter underside on air inlet would eliminate dust, but also decrease performance.Passive cooling has no "feel the power" , they are for silent operation not power operation. also they are cleaner and dust does not enter the case.
however , once they use the fans even at 500rpm , they allow dust in eliminating a major positive of a Passive PC.
