Because of the height of the tower chassis there is also something a bit like a chimney effect inside the chassis which drives air circulation. And the metal chassis of the tower also cools down the air in the inside, a bit like a (n inefficent) heat exchanger.
Original TT chassis is much more closed and the plastics of the chassis behaves more like a temperature isolator. So for warm air it is much more difficult to get out without fans.
The reason you want to remove the fan(s) is that they produce noise. That is understandable. But there are also very noiseless fans which you can not hear normally. I recommend you to use Sunon maglev fans. They don't have ball/roller-bearings but magnetic leviatation system bearings. So these fans turn touchless in the bearings, that means the bearings are noiseless and undestroyable as there is no friction at all. Aditionally also the fan blades are very silent. I had one PC with such fans running allmost 10 years almost nonstop as mediacenter and TV recording system, after that the whole system was very bad but not these fans. Everywhere where I can I replace with Sunon maglev fans I do so and I am very satisfied.
