Living on planet earth, where we are aeons behind Alien tech, having a high end PC almost always doubles as having a space heater. Unless you live in the alps, this quickly becomes a problem, hence the noisy fans and expensive water cooling systems. But leave it to the Germans, they have a possible solution at hand. Dubbed the AfroPC – no I’m kidding – the SilentPower utilizes a kitchen-scrub-like copper mesh to dissipate heat from both the CPU and the GPU. This allows the PC to stay cool at around 50° Celcius without any fans. Not to mention that it’s also tiny at about 6 inches wide, which makes it even cooler. It boasts the latest Intel Core i7-4785T processor with configurable SSD and RAM options, starting €699 up to €1,159. It’s currently still in crowdfunding stage and they’re aiming at raising €45,000 before going into mass production, which is planned for Spring 2015. Just keep it away from the wife, yeah? Via c|net.
