What? No, I'm saying the Israli government ISN'T brutal or cutthroat. There's a reason Israel is a member of the UN and actively protected by some of its members. Don't generalize it with the rest of the middle east. I'm not from Israel or know anybody who is. I know a nice guy from Lebanon, a country that hates Israel, and yet you still don't hear me making bigoted statements.And yes, the chinese government is just as brutal and cut throat (if not even more so) than the israelli one.
You apparently have been living under a rock for the past couple years if you think passive cooling isnt ever a good idea. While I think an i7 probably shouldn't be passively cooled, at least with this system being almost entirely a heatsink, you could just put a fan in front of it and problem solved. I get your point about metal saturating heat, but heat needs to escape into something at some point. Otherwise things like tablets would overheat all the time.But 1- Passive cooling is never a good idea, no matter if you think it looks good. Get some flowing air or liquid or something because there's a point where metal saturates with heat.
