From the tests we’ve conducted during development, a quality tower-style cooler can be used without CPU
fan and instead rely only on chassis fans to cool CPU up to 95W TDP (Core i7, not overclocked). However,
performance may vary depending on the quality of your CPU cooler and other factors, so you will still need to
test the limit on your own. We recommend installing hard drives into the first slot and the fourth slot from the
top to increase overall case cooling performance.
