diskless box: fanless too ?
I have been asked to help someone learn about Linux. So far, I have
installed Linux on an existing box. I must also give advice on new
hardware. One of the concerns this person has, is not having anything
spinning in his office. He currently uses a diskless sparc station, which
is apparently also fanless since it is very very quiet.
Does anyone know if the same is possible in the ix86 architechture ? I know
I could set him up with a diskless box booting off a server in another room,
but could that diskless box also have a fanless powersupply ? I figure the
cpu would still need its fan. Anyone think that the absence of a fan in a
diskless box would cause heating problems ??
