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 ??
