    Case is MetallicGear NEO Qube. I have two fans at the bottom and 2 and the top (they used to be 3 in total, but I admit I added a forth recently, even if temps didn't change that much). Fans are NOCTUA and run at about 600-700 rpm.
    CPU is ryzen 4650, I undervolted it slightly.
    Integrated GPU.

    There is a direct airflow, with no restrictions of any sort, from bottom to top of the case passing through CPU heatsink which is a simple noctua NH-U9S where I just removed the fan.

    I often leave the system rendering for days as a support machine to my main system (which is in another room) and believe me if I say I just can't hear it even if it's in my bedroom during night. Temps can raise a little but never go above 75-80c.

    I know there's no dedicated GPU working, the point wasn't that I'm doing better than this admirable case, the point is that you will have an hard time hearing a bunch of quality low rpm fans in a closed case with good clearance and cable management, so putting so much effort in having 0 fans, while admirable, is a little wasted.

    Looks to be a very impressive chassis design, especially the custom heat pipe layout.

    Maybe if the parts are a bit lucky on the silicon lottery undervolting will do the trick !

    Still a D5 pump at min 1/5 speed (1800rpm) and some 600-800 rpm 140mm fans are still deadly silent and few tens less of temperature.

    deadly silent pump, is that even possible? good silent pump starts at 30sec mark

    nothing could be furthest removed from the concept of passive cooling than the water cooling (pump)

    If you're going to passively cool a power hungry PC....the room has to be pretty cold....
