Calyos Unveils NSG Passive Cooling Kit for Thermaltake Core P3

Heatpipe cooling expert Calyos unveiled a passive-cooling kit for the Thermaltake Core P3 chassis. The kit mounts on to the panel bolts of the Core P3, and is an elaborate passive cooling heatsink, from which two sets of heat pipes make their way out. One of these mount on to the CPU (supports all modern socket types), and the other to a graphics card. The kit can handle thermal loads of up to 100W TDP for the CPU, and up to 180W TDP for the graphics card. That's enough cooling for a machine with a Core i7-6700K processor, and a GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. Calyos will unveil this kit at its 2017 International CES booth.

Interesting - if price will be around 300$ - will grab one....
I sick of exchanging fans (yes - also highest priced ones - like noctuas) just to determine - "oh this shyt - this one clicks and whines even more than previous one that I tough was unacceptable load at low speeds"...
and now that there is plenty of reasonably priced half-passive PSUs can output 400-500wats without even once in its life time turning on the fan - I will be able to create fully silent system... just to hear that various coil whines that will really drive me nuts :D

Cooling capability is small relative to fancy and expensive gas cooling .

They should call it a massive cooling kit not passive cooling kit.

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, I'm waiting for this since I saw Linus review...
My Case, My vision of cooling...
Just one thing... Can you still hang it on a wall?

That's actually pretty dang cool. Always dreamed of a fanless non-compromised system. This looks like a perfect candidate.

Do we know anything about compatibility of this thing when it comes to GPU? Only Nvidia cards series 10 are supported?

This is the best news I heard in a while. I really hope 2017 will be the year of the passively cooled 1080p gaming PC.

Unfortunately this is only for one case and and it's an open case, so nothing if you want a really silent system, because coil whine is still an issue. This should fit into a really silent case with sound dampening and no window. Then I'll buy it in two seconds. Put a fanless PSU in there and you'll never even know your PC is on.

Just give me a rig that can handle at least 500Ws of heat and I might consider it instead of watercooling.

Other ways I can build a fully passive watercooling kit for around 300$s...

Who needs 500W without any fans, pumps and only a single graphics card? The 300W heat this thing can cool is more than enough for the most high end configurations, as this article already states.

100W is not much for a CPU... Plus the picture shows a 2011 setup that is a 140W cpu, so not sure what marketing was doing on that one...

In a High-End configuration a single GPU itself dissipates mote than 300W... Add a High-End i7 CPU to that and there you go with the 500Ws...

Or, you can run fans on low rpm. And it won't be a throwaway novelty item after next upgrade.

Well, a fully passive watercooling is not a thwowaway at all, the only thing you need to change is the auxilary cooling on the VGA. CPU- and GPU-coolers are universal.

The inly problem with the thing is that it is kinda big. It's big for two reasons. First, the passive heat dissipation needs a big radiator if you don't wabt it to be a special thong. Second, the cooling itself needs height to gain flow in the pipes. Piece of cake.
