Looks like someone at HP messed up in the marketing material of the company's Chromebox. The device is marketed as being fanless but even HP's own disassembly guide
shows off the fan-heatsink that is used to cool the 17W TDP processor!
The company in its marketing material, describes its Chromebox as being "silent, quiet, and efficient," and "dust-free" due to its "fanless design." When tested by YouTube-based hardware reviewer Lyon Siedman, he noticed a hum and vibration caused only by the presence of a fan.
