Completely Silent PC

Ensuring quiet with a completely silent PC

A completely silent PC is a necessity in noise-sensitive workspaces like audio studios, engineering labs, performing arts venues and home theaters. The right quiet PC will be built with components that satisfy performance requirements while drastically minimizing or eliminating noise during operation.

Thinkmate offers a family of VSX workstations built with specially designed heatsinks, low-noise chassis, and intelligent fan designs that take the completely silent PC to a new level.

How to build a completely silent PC

To create a completely silent PC, manufacturers often start by reducing the amount of heat generated by the internal components of the workstation. As components like motherboards, CPUs and video cards generate heat, they must be cooled by fans that typically are the largest source of noise within a PC. Reducing heat generation can be achieved by using parts that require less electricity and by using a more efficient power supply.

Because it's virtually impossible to completely eliminate the need for cooling, a completely silent PC will also need cooling devices such as specially designed fans and heatsinks that dissipate heat while producing little to no noise.

Manufacturers may also use silent power PC technologies to address the electrical whine from electric coils in power supplies, and insulation and sound-absorbing technologies that contain noise within the chassis of the computer.

A completely silent PC from Thinkmate

Thinkmate provides computer servers, storage and cluster solutions that can be easily customized with our online configurator, which features more customizable options than any other system builder on the web. When building a completely silent PC, you'll have a broad range of components to choose from, and with each selection you can view the revised configured price of the machine.

While our configurator makes it easy to customize equipment online, our expert solution architects are always available to answer your questions or help you choose the right components for your completely silent PC.

Every ultra-quiet PC from Thinkmate can be backed by a 3-year warranty with advanced parts replacement, and the option to upgrade to a 5-year warranty with advanced parts replacement or next day business on-site service.

Components of a completely silent PC

Each Thinkmate silent PC features:

  • A choice of 1-2 processors, including Intel® Core™ X-series Processors, Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7/i9 Processors, Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and Intel® Xeon® W Processors,
  • Options for maximum RAM up to 2TB DDR4 ECC RDIMMs
  • PCIe slots, with a choice of up to (7) PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots
  • Drive bays, up to (8) SATA Drive Bays
  • Up to 2 graphical processing units (GPUs)

For completely silent PC performance, our VSX workstations are built with components that include:

  • The best quiet PC cooling technology, featuring specially designed heatsinks and fans, including an ultra-quiet 120 mm double ball bearing fan is regulated by an intelligent fan speed system.
  • Ultra-quiet power supplies featuring flat, low-profile modular cables that can be effectively routed to create more space for increased airflow.
  • A high-efficiency design that reduces heat generation by minimizing the usage of electricity.
  • Virtually noiseless solid-state drives, rather than hard disk drives with spinning platters that create vibration and require cooling.
  • A dual-chamber chassis designed for maximum sound absorption thanks to three-layer wall construction and soundproofing insulation. This expertly engineered chassis reduces heat and noise by maximizing airflow efficiency and by separating the power supply from other system components.

FAQs: What is a completely silent PC?

What is a completely silent PC?

A completely silent PC is a computer that produces no noise as it operates.

How is a completely silent PC built?

Completely silent PCs are built with components that drastically minimize or eliminate noise. Because fans are the most noise-producing part of a PC, the most silent PC products will typically eliminate fan noise by using components that significantly reduce the amount of heat produced by the computer, and by using silent PC cooling devices like fanless heatsinks to dissipate any heat that is produced. Completely silent PCs will also use solid-state drives, which are silent, instead of noisier hard disk drives. And a completely silent PC will also incorporate a soundproofed case that can absorb any noise produced by the machine.
