Ah yes, America isn't allowed to force its values on the rest of the world but the rest of the world is able to force its values on Americans
Every single time I have to do math in inches completely invalidates what you just said.
I'm pretty sure the kind of OEM PCs that are totally fanless will be using laptop parts and not a massive 2kg cooler.

And yes, it most definitely is a niche product, but at the same time, it's rated for 120W, so it shouldn't be too limiting for people who don't intend to OC. But the kind of person who wants a totally silent PC is willing to compromise on performance anyway.
I completely agree with you there. I was just trying to think of a reason to get it and was forced to grasp at straws.
Celsius is metric. Celsius is a derived SI unit, but it's still a metric unit.
Kind of but not really. The actual metric scale for temperature is Kelvin. Celsius units are the same "size" as Kelvin scale but the numbers don't match because 0°K is -273°C or absolute zero.

Not kind of but not really. Really. Celsius is metric. You're confusing that Celsius isn't the base unit and Kelvin is. That doesn't make Celsius not metric. Celsius is metric.

I was referring to the base unit as the SI defines it because it confuses the hell out of Americans more than Celsius does. LOL
