If you are doing anything remotely interesting, you will need that cooling or else the unit will cook itself. Fanless is a nice idea in theory but once you do some computing or employ a decent GPU, you quickly realize the value in effective heat management.
Ignoring heat issues really isn't a bright idea.
My nv based Mac Mini did itself in like that. Cooked itself.
My Asrock machines will outlive everything (Zotac, Apple, Asus, Giada, NUC) and all because of an ability to cool themselves off.
