And for my next trick: Passive Asymetrical Xfire APU Gamer?
Yeah, Im weird. I just finished rebuilding my Lanbox and now I still have the itch...
A10-5800k w/ Scythe Orochi passive heatsink
6670 Passive (Probably a sapphire ultimate if i can find one)
Decent FM2 board, itx or mATX
Passive PSU (Probably an SS Nightjar)
Worse-case scenario: a fan or two just for air movement. Gentle typhoon AP-11s, Nexus real silents and others I already have. Maybe a 220mm on a side panel or something. But the point is a 0db system.
This probably won't be happening anytime soon. But its a fun thought...
Speaking of, what are Your thoughts? Is it even viable (cause I think it is)
A 100W TDP APU with a single fan in probably a large case? IMO, you may have some issues unless you undervolt. While the coolers may be passive, they still need some air movement to get the job done.
I realize I'll probably need fan, but the fewer the better.
Also: Nightjar is out. Its at least 50$ more expensive than others. Anyone have experience with the following?:
- Kingwin STR-500
- FSP group Aurum Xilenser
- Seasonic SS-460FL/SS-400FL
Edit: And for some strange reason, im being drawn the Lian-Li open-board ITX case: PC-Q06. All internalized components save the board, GPU and HSF. Problem... seems EOL? Dangit... Anybody have one to sell?
TBH this project is on hold till i see some solid performance reviews and more mature drivers for asymetrical xfire. The OP was MetaDrunk. haha. I should learn my lesson and stop posting after drinking.
Yes, tt would be unfortunate to put a system like that together and not have xfire work properly due to drivers or whatever other limitations. Hopefully Trinity works well.
For a passive build I would go for a 65w variant... That said interesting idea.
