Refine your search for shuttle motherboard. The thermal specs show that the new Tualatin Celeron would be dissipating 28 watts of heat vs. The processor runs so cool that it can operate without a fan. Would it do the job running desktop applications, would it be stable and cool with only one fan in the whole case, and would it run linux?


The only negative to spending way too much time on the PC was noise — which eventually resulted in this project. Since the processor is not overclocked, I was able to wire all 3 fans for 7 volts instead of 12 volts and thus reduce the rpm and resultant noise even more, while still keeping cpu temperatures around 45C. Not wanting to go the route of water cooling or putting the computer in the basement and running the cables through the floor,the next best solution is to try for a cooler running processor, which will not require as many fans.

This experiment in noise reduction resulted in a relatively quiet PC where the noise of the rpm hard drives was the loudest sound.

Building a Mini ‘Quieter-than-a-Whisper’ Linux PC

This feature makes it really easy to swap drives in the confined space. Turn off email alerts. Number of bids and bid amounts may be slightly out of date. This VIA C3 uses. Colocation Server Hosting by Binary Environments. This page was last updated: I built my main computer with an AMD T-bird 1.

And the shutttle spec shows an average power dissipation of 5. That led me to use the new Seagate Barracuda IV rpm drive with fluid bearing motor for a definite reduction in hard drive noiseand then continue the quest for a quieter PC.
