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 130W 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.
