Question ? Does the SP8000E run fanless in the Travla Case C138?   [

 I would have loved someone to answer me that question before I bought that case. The Short answer is: No
The case is nice - though the CPU temperature is going up to 70/80C. That might be OK for the CPU and motherboard - however - we have to take into account the other components in the system. The Harddisk or CDRom Drives will suffer from it. Especially harddisks start to fail when the temperature is over 60C - so at least the harddrive will require a FAN to operate.

Solution: Instead of the location for the 2.5" harddrive - put a 50mm FAN on the side which blows the air out of the case - you'll have to make a big hole on the side though. This keeps the System temperature below 45C which is sustainable for all the hardware inside.
