Description

This 10th Generation Fanless PC has raised fanless performance to new levels with a 8-core (16 thread) i7 processor combining performance and power efficiency.

We include high performance DDR4 memory up to 64GB and the latest Samsung 970 PCIe SSDs which have exceptional performance, creating a system that is suited for intense use by media professionals and audiophiles.

This model features the MSI Z490i motherboard, which uses premium components throughout for stable and reliable performance. Features include 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3, 2.5G LAN, Wifi 6, Displayport, HDMI, USB 3.2 Gen 2, high quality audio.

The case has an extremely robust design with 7kg of aluminium & steel. The product uses a copper block on the CPU that connects to the external cooling fins using heat pipes. The motherboard's chipset is also cooled with a heatpipe. This design enables the product to not need air vents and enables it to be used in dusty/dirty environments. Because there are no moving parts and no air sucked into the case the product has zero maintenance and high reliability.

The power supply is perfect for Audiophiles, using the HDPlex 400W Hi-Fi DC Power Supply which uses high specification audio-grade components. This accepts 16-30V with a 7.4mm/5.0mm plug. The default option has a 180W AC-DC 19.5V Power Adapter, but you can choose your own DC power such as the HDPlex 300W LPS (Linear Power Supply) which you can obtain directly from HDPlex.

The i7 10700T CPU is designed so that long term power drawn by the processor is limited to 35W. The whole system draws about 60W under this long term full loading. During turbo boost operations the CPU can draw up to 70W and the whole system 105W. Please note that the motherboard has a BIOS setting made so that it obeys the 35W power limit of the processor. Because it is possible during the lifetime of the PC for this setting to be lost by the BIOS being reset we only recommend this product to professionals and enthusiasts.

A disk tray is included, which enables the addition of 2 x 2.5" SSD or Hard Drives that can be configured as RAID 0/1 pairs for speed or security.

User Access to fast PCIe SSD: The chassis has been adapted so that it is possible to access the ultra fast PCIe SSD that is on the underside of the motherboard.  Simply remove a few screws in the PC's base plate, and once the base plate is removed the SSD can be replaced. The SSD has a thermal pad so that even under extreme loads it does not overheat.  This photo shows the base plate and thermal pad removed.

Access M.2 NVMe SSD under bottom plate

PCIe Expansion Cards Supported: PCI Express cards with 1x or 4x PCIe slots can be fitted inside the case enabling varied expansion possibilities, such as a PCIe card with single or dual LAN ports, or a fast NVMe SSD.

Configured to your specification

We can create a solution to meet your specific requirements. Other motherboards and CPUs can be installed to make a fanless system matching your requirements. Please get in touch with the contact form, online chat, or give us a call.

This product is aimed at audiophiles but it can also be configured with a 200W fanless Industrial mains power supply as used with the other Sigao Fanless PCs. Please contact us for a custom quote if interested.

If you choose the Windows installation option, as well as installing on the internal SSD drive, so it is ready to use out of the box, we also include a USB memory stick with the Windows installation, so you can rebuild or repair Windows if you need to.

You need to supply your own Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse. Please contact us if you need any recommendations or want custom additions bundled with your order.

Motherboard Technical Specification

See motherboard technical specification

Fanless Heatpipe Technology

The CPU and the motherboard chipset are cooled by using advanced heat pipes attached to both sides of the case. This technology provides efficient cooling by transferring the heat to the cooling fins on the outside. As a result you get a completely silent cooling solution that can be trusted. The cooling is so effective that the processor can be used at 100% CPU load continually without any overheating problems.

The heatpipe cooling of the motherboard's chipset enables stable performance even under extreme loading. Cheaper fanless ITX cooling solutions rely on air cooling of the chipset which requires ventilation slots in those cases.
