Mainstream brands like ASUS, GIGABYTE and ASRock need to step up their game. Now that passive cooling is taking off, we wish they would put as much effort into their designs as the industrial world does (shoutout to our friends at Logic Supply).
Rugged fanless computers with decently-sized heat sinks can be pretty. Stop hiding aluminum coolers, stop burying them into ridiculously small cases. If fanless aesthetics are now a trend, it's time to embrace the very nature of passive cooling, and see large chunks of aluminum not as a weakness, but as a strength.
