Quiet Computing From VIA

VIA has been promoting quiet computing through "Cool Processing" since the launch of the VIA C3 processor in March 2001. Large, overpowered PCs require many high-speed fans to ventilate and cool them and the result is excessive PC noise.

Much of the PC industry's scarce resources are being directed at silencing these fans and coolers as a treatment for PC noise. VIA's highly efficient processor platforms target the issue of PC noise at the source because they require minimal noisy forced air-cooling and can result in quieter overall PC systems especially when combined with smaller, quieter power supplies.
