Suppressing noise in a quiet PC
Quiet PCs are built with components that address the major sources of noise in computing devices.
- Fans. Fans are perhaps the largest source of noise in computers. CPUs, video cards and the computer chassis typically all have fans used to dissipate the heat generated by a variety of components. The quiet PC can reduce noise from fans by using components that generate less heat and electricity, therefore requiring less cooling, and by using fans designed to produce less noise. Using heatsinks can help to cool components without the noise of a spinning fan blade.
- Power supplies. The electrical coils in power supplies can produce an audible electrical whine. A silent power PC may include technology that can reduce this hum and soundproofing materials that dampen it.
- Hard disk drives. Hard disk drives use spinning platters to read and write data, and the vibration and friction from these moving parts can produce an audible hum. Solid-state drives can replace hard disk drives to eliminate this noise.
- Air turbulence. As air flows through the chassis of a computer, noise can be generated as it passes over components and cabling. Ensuring that components and cabling are neatly organized and kept away from the flow of air can help to minimize noise.

Elements of Thinkmate's quiet PC solutions
At Thinkmate, our quiet PCs are built with:
- Solid-state drives that minimize vibration (as they have no moving platters) and require no extra cooling, or hard disk drives that are limited to 7200 RPM to minimize vibration in the chassis.
- Ultra-quiet power supplies with an intelligent fan speed system for minimizing fan noise, a high-efficiency design that reduces electricity usage to generate less heat, and flat, low-profile cables that allow for increased airflow for improved silent PC cooling.
- A dual-chamber chassis that uses three-layer wall construction with soundproofing insulation to maximize sound absorption, and that reduces heat and noise by increasing airflow efficiency and by isolating the power supply from the other system components.
You can configure your quiet PC online through our online quoting and ordering system that features more customizable options than any other system builder on the web. And if you can't find the exact configuration you're seeking, simply contact our expert solution architects for help in assembling your completely silent PC.
