If you have K series CPU and/or serious internal discrete GPU then 100% passive is pretty hard. That DB4 model tries but has real limits. i.e. either K cpu without gpu OR non-K plus low-power GPU. And that's a pretty highly engineered solution with cooling on two of four panels.
An external GPU which is mostly passive is the way round that but when the system is under load, you'll have fans running. So not 100% passive.
Yip, it wouldn't be 100% passive but it would still be sort of Passively cooled. I am looking around for parts that would work in a passive rig. I will only start on the build once I have all its components ready.
I know I have a non K cpu somewhere.
