Asus' New Eee Box Runs Silently Thanks to Being Fanless

By - Source: FanlessTech | B 11 comments

Asus' new Eee Box doesn't have any fans, which means it'll be very silent.

Asus has announced its new Eee Box, which is fanless. It'll be known as the EB1037.

The unit comes packed with the new Bay Trial Celeron J1900 processor, as well as an Nvidia GeForce 820M graphics card. The CPU is one with 4 cores, each clocked at 2.0 GHz with a Turbo frequency of 2.42 GHz. It has a TDP of 10 W. The graphics card comes with 512 MB of memory and carries a TDP of 25 W.

All the units ship with an 802.11ac WiFi adapter, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth 4.0 support.

The unit will come in two versions: one with a 320 GB hard drive, 2 GB of RAM and no OS, which will sell for €299; and another with a 500 GB hard drive, 4 GB of RAM and Windows 8.1, which will cost €399. Through select channels they will also be available with up to 1 TB hard drives, up to 128 GB SSDs, and up to 8 GB of RAM.

    Can't say I'm a fan of it. Guess it'll remain fanless.

    Fanless does not equal silent 100% of the time. Every MFM hard drive that's ever existed will attest to that :) I'm not sure I like all these little systems, though, at least not for €399... I just can't help but feel like I'm being sold a non-portable equivalent of the bottom half of a cheap laptop. I suppose maybe you could use it for an HTPC, but wouldn't a decent ITX be a lot better suited than this thing? I just don't understand the market segment other than being a neat little computer. Maybe that's just me.

    Heck sometimes fans make less noise than mechanical HDDs.

    True, but it also said through select channels it can come with up to 128GB SSD. Flash storage is dead silent and it's not like SSD's and other flash devices are past the point of admission any longer for consumers like in the past.From a consumer standpoint I wouldn't even buy a traditional moving parts hard drive which are slower, less reliable, noisier, produce more heat, and consumes more power.

    Thats actually an ok GPU for a fanless system, but 512mb of vram would gimp the system. :(

    128 GB is enough for all my data storage needs!... said no one ever.
