The MSI MS-C902 is fanless computer with support for up to 64GB of RAM, up to four displays, and dual 2.5 GbE Ethernet ports. Powered by a 12th-gen Intel Core mobile processor, it’s may also be the thinnest fanless desktop computer with an Intel Core chip.
MSI began showing off the little computer a year ago, but I’m not sure that it ever went on sale through retail channels. But FanlessTech recently noticed that the MS-C902 is now available for purchase from Industrial Computers Inc. Since it’s positioned as an industrial or enterprise device though, it ain’t exactly cheap.
Prices start at $1,185 for a model with an Intel Core i5-1245UE processor, 8GB of RAM, but no storage, operating system, or wireless card. Adding storage, Windows, or a wireless card will drive the price even higher.
The computer two SODIMM slots for DDR4-3200 memory, an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 storage, room for a 2.5 inch SSD, and M.2 2242 and 2230 slots for wireless cards, storage, or other add-ons.
