Why small PCs should be fanless

/* So why is fit-PC2 case warm to the touch? */
Passive cooling by conduction is silent and has no moving parts that can fail, making it far more reliable than active cooling. Unfortunately it is also less efficient than active cooling. The accomplishment in fit-PC2 is bringing down the system power consumption to such a level as to make passive cooling in a small case possible.<br>
== So why is fit-PC2 case warm to the touch? ==
fit-PC2 case feels warm to the touch because the case itself is used for heat dissipation. What you feel is all the heat the system generates. Thermal performance is guaranteed not to change over time.
