Could I ask why you object against passive cooling? Am I correct the important difference between active and passive cooling is energy consumption, where passive means no energy consumption? So why would you not like it, I mean, what's the drawback then?
Because passive cooling isn't very good?
All passive 7xxxx, 8xxx, and 9xxx models (So basically all models you can buy now) I've seen get pretty hot, if you look carefully at the packaging you'll see that ``A casefan is recommended''.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
