Hush ushers in silent PC

Hush Technologies has launched the Silent Mini-ITX PC at the CeBit trade show in Hannover, Germany. It uses a new cooling technology to eliminate all fans from the system, thus producing no noise during normal operation. The metal chassis is the key to the system, having cooling fins both sides that help dissipate the heat generated by the processor, power supply and other components.

The Silent Mini-ITX looks much like a Hi-Fi component such as a CD player, and has only the power switch and the drive bay to adorn the front panel. It's available in a number of colours, including black, silver and gold. This PC uses the Mini-ITX form factor motherboard introduced by chipmaker Via last year. Other cases for Mini-ITX have been released but have tended to have a fan for the power supply at the very least.
