Finding the best silent PC
The best silent PC strikes a careful balance between cutting-edge performance and low-noise operation. That's exactly what you get with a silent desktop computer from Thinkmate – along with a 3-year warranty with advanced parts replacement, unmatched shopping experience and customer service, and the ability to customize your silent PC to meet your exact requirements.
How to build the best silent PC
When building the best silent PC, there are several strategies that manufacturers can employ to mitigate or eliminate the most significant sources of noise within a workstation.
- Minimizing heat generation is perhaps the most significant step toward building the best quiet PC. The heat generated from the internal components must be dissipated or cooled by fans which are the biggest sources of noise in a workstation. By using components that require less power and create less heat, manufacturers can significantly reduce the amount of fan noise from a workstation.
- Incorporating low-noise fans or noiseless heatsinks can help to drastically reduce noise. Specially designed fans use low-noise blade geometry, special ball bearings and variable fan speed settings to optimize cooling while minimizing sound.
- Neatly organizing the components and cabling within the case of a workstation can help to minimize the sound from turbulence as air moves through the housing.
- Using solid-state drives can eliminate the vibration generated by hard disk drives, which use spinning platters to read and write data.
- The whine from electrical coils and transformers can be reduced by using low-noise components and insulation within the computer case that maximizes sound-absorption.

FAQs: What is the best silent PC?
What is the best silent PC?
The best silent PC is a computer with a design that produces little to no noise along with superior performance and the ability to customize the hardware to meet specific requirements.
What components provide the best silent PC performance?
Because moving parts such as fans and hard drives are the noisiest parts of a computer, the best silent PC performance is achieved by minimizing the heat produced by the machine in order to reduce or eliminate the need for fans, and by replacing hard disk drives with solid-state drives that have no spinning platters.
