The Skylake CS-80 Fanless PC is designed around the Nofan CS-80 Full ATX fanless chasis, the Silverstone NJ520 520w PSU, and Nofan CR-95C Fanless CPU Cooler, along with an Intel SSD to create a cost effective, reliable, and totally noiseless PC. The CS-80 is one of the very few fanless chassis that actually supports a full-sized ATX motherboard, full length expansion cards, as well as up to five (5) internal 3.5" Disk drives, as well as three (3) 5.25" bays. Additionally, and is much less expensive than similarly featured fanless chassis on the market.
Our Skylake CS-80 Fanless PC including the absolute latest technology available, all while being completely fanless. Skylake Architecture (Z170 Chipset/Socket 1151 CPUs) now feature DDR4 memory, as well as an updated capacity for memory of 64GB. DDR4 memory, integrated and enhanced video capabilities, expanded M.2 capabilities, U.2 compatible (all Skylake systems are NVMe compatible), USB 3.1 (10 Gbps), and expanded PCIe bus lanes (up to 20 depending on CPU).
This Skylake Fanless PC also features ample expansion slots, ample USB 3.1, an Asus Hyper Kit, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, an Asus Hyper Kit, superior audio, and DP or HDMI 2.0 video outputs (right from the board). HDMI 2.0 is fully 4K ready, streaming 4K at 60 fps and our Skylake Tower PC features the only motherboard featuring HDMI 2.0. Asus Z170 motherboards also include Thunderbolt 2 support for those of your with Thunderbolt 2 audio or video devices.
Our Skylake Tower PC is built with the feature rich, high-end (but consumer oriented) Asus Z170-Deluxe Motherboard. The Z170-Deluxe is loaded with just about every feature you could need, designed especially for all-around compatibility, and extreme durability. The focus for this 6th/7th Generation Fanless PC is on achieving a fully-featured socket 1151 processor based system, featuring the Z170/Z270 chipset and the best price point possible without sacrificing features, quality, or performance.
As always, we aren't limited to the options that are on our website, and would be happy to use any compatible motherboard, or component you would like us to special order in for you.

About the Core Components in the NoFan CS-80 PC
LGA1151 Intel® 6th/7th Generation Processor Ready This PC supports Intel® 6th/7th generation processors, with improved video, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets and power to support 4K video at 60fps. Socket 1151 also supports up to 64GB dual-channel DDR4 memory in 4 DIMMs, and up to 20 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. Intel® 6th/7th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Fanless Video Cards We choose the quietest video cards available in the market. Every video card choice is silently cooled either with the manufacturer's fanless video heatsink or with a custom silent video card cooler. As well as being absolutely silent every video card offers support for at least two monitors simultaneously, many with options for more.
Quiet Hard Drives Every system comes defaulted with some of the most silent hard drive options available. If you are looking for total silence choose an SSD! Solid-state drives (SSD) have no moving parts, so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are more reliable than standard mechanical hard drives.
Quality Asus Motherboard We feature the latest ASUS® motherboards in our quiet systems. ASUS® is the world's best selling and most award winning motherboard manufacturer. They provide supreme reliability, top notch cutting edge features and excellent manufacture support. Our motherboards contain fanless heatsinks and heatpipes to effectively cool the chipset heatsink and voltage regulators, without the use of noisy fans.
High Quality Memory This NoFan CS-80 Fanless PC comes with your choice of high quality Kingston® memory and Corsair. We use Kingston® and Corsair memory because they are highly reliable and feature a lifetime warranty. The NoFan CS-80 Fanless PC has options for up to 64GB of RAM for those desiring ultimate performance!

What Is A Socket 1151 Skylake PC?
Several new features are included with Skylake CPUs that aren’t included with Socket 1150 (New Haswell) CPUs. These include:
Improved Graphics Support | Out of the box graphics performance (without the need for an added video card) has nearly doubled with Socket 1151 (Skylake) over Socket 1150 (Haswell and Broadwell). Socket 1151 also includes full 4K support at 60 fps and includes expanded support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and Open CL 2.0.
64GB DDR4 Support | Socket 1150 CPUs maxed out at 32GB DDR3 RAM support. Socket 1151 allows for 64GB DDR4 RAM. So, if you are doing memory intensive work, you could probably benefit from using a greater amount of high performance RAM in your PC.
Expanded M.2 and U.2 support | Socket 1151 (Skylake) is capable of greater M.2 and U.2 support (Asus Z170 motherboards are all compatible with the Asus Hyper Kit necessary for lightning fast NVMe drive support).
What are these new Z270 Prime Motherboards?
Skylake was the technology used in Z170 Motherboards and Socket 1151 CPUs (Intel’s consumer oriented CPUs). Skylake CPUs we include with our consumer oriented PCs include the Celeron G3900 to the i7-6700K (Passmark benchmark range from 3031 to 11087 on these CPUs. Skylake CPUs and motherboards featured newly improved memory (up to 64GB DDR4), improved graphics support (with some boards featuring HDMI 2.0), and expanded M.2 support.
Z270 Motherboards feature the Z270 chipset, as well as Intel's new 7th Generation Socket 1151 CPUs (as well as being backwards compatible with 6th Generation Socket 1151 CPUs). They also feature 24 lanes of PCIe 3.0 bus (up from 20 lanes with Z170, aiding in M.2 support) and greater memory speed support (Max. DDR4-2400).
The Z270 Upgrade Includes:
24 lanes of PCIe 3.0 bus for greater M.2 support
Improved Energy Efficiency
Support for up to DDR4-2400 (Z170 officially included support for up to DDR4-2133)
Continued Graphics Improvement
We don't just choose quieter parts, we choose the quietest, best performing parts available and assemble them cleanly to optimize airflow and minimize the slightest vibration. We don't just replace one or two parts in our Quiet PCs with relatively quiet components, we replace each component with the quietest part available.
In addition to silent parts our systems are built with pride for many years of use. From start to finish, we anticipate, research, and test each system for maximum compatibility and performance; all while being absolutely silent. You will be amazed at how quiet our systems are!
And like always, EndPCNoise.com backs these systems with a one year warranty along with the best professional, courteous technical service and support on the market today. Not sure what configuration would best suit you? Contact our Sales Team to receive a custom quote!
