Default Zotac IONITX-S anyone?

Hi,

my old DVB-S receiver is dying and I wanted to buy a new one but they're gaga in regard of pricing.
So I decided to build my own one. That's not cheaper but I guess is fun and I know what's inside

I've basically made my decision to use the above mainboard but *one* big question remains: Zotac offers the IONITX in 2 varieties: one with active cooling and one with passive cooling. So, both systems being more or less the same hardware, I am wondering how the passive one fares (had some less than joyful experience with overheating Zotac hardware in the past).
So, if you use this mainboard and could give some first hand experience that would be great!

TIA
