I myself wouldn´t say these Processors don´t need fans. It´s all about 
the way of cooling the CPU.
You should take a look inside the case (the Dell one) and you´ll see 
that the heatsink of the processor gets an airblow from the power 
supply. So you shouldn´t break this cooling system up by placing board 
an Processor into another case without adding a fan. I just grilled some 
Pentium 75 this way...
