So I am looking to make a new build with the goal of making it a ninja monster of a PC, a rig that is virtually silent until it has to push through frame upon frame of gaming goodness.
To reach the goal I have a case for the purpose, a PSU that goes passive cooled when not stressed, the same with the graphics card, a CPU cooler from that company which used to only make brown fans... only the mother board is challenge. I want to go with a X570 but all with the exception of one I have found come with a small fan and I hate small fans.
Small fans has to spin fast to move any air, so they are loud and they also tend to wear out quickly thus I want to avoid having to deal with that. However so far I found only one fanless X570, the GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Xtreme and while one is enough for a build the $700 price is way over the top for me. So is there alternatives I have just missed somehow?The Xtreme in a review at Anandtech
The ideal board for me would be one with great functionality, which to me means lots of slots, lots of SATA ports, optical audio in and out however I do not care for WIFI or LED light shows or any bling including fancy plastic covers that are just in the way of free air flow.
This is more like what I am looking for, only it has a fan
