Silent PC

Eliminate noise with a silent PC from Thinkmate

Whether you need a silent PC workstation for audio recording, video editing, live performance, or home theater settings, you'll find a wide range of ultra-quiet PC options in Thinkmate's VSX workstations. With specially designed heatsinks, low-noise chassis and fan designs, and ultra-quiet power supplies, our fourth generation of silent PC technology takes the noiseless workstation to a new level.

Evolution of the silent PC

As computing power has increased exponentially over the decades, the noise level from workstations has risen as well.

Early computers were low-power machines and required no fans or low-speed fans that produce little noise. But as the computational power of individual machines increased, the heat generated from these devices required increasingly strong fans to prevent performance from suffering. Noise and vibration from disk drives, power supplies, motherboards and video/graphics cards began to be more noticeable as well, causing professionals in noise-sensitive workspaces to seek solutions for ultra-quiet workstations.

With silent PC equipment, sensitive environments like audio recording and video editing studios can be kept free of the hum from workstations. Scientific laboratories where precise measurements are required can be protected from low noise pollution. Business professionals can enjoy a quiet space for focused efficiency while individuals at home can enjoy a more relaxing and peaceful environment.

No one builds a silent PC like Thinkmate

Thinkmate is an industry-leading provider of silent PC solutions for a wide range of business and personal applications. From audio recording to digital content creation and from laboratories to engineering spaces, our silent PC equipment enables business professionals to work in a noise-free environment, remaining focused on productivity rather than the sound of their technology.

Our VSX silent desktop PC workstations strike a careful balance between cutting-edge performance and low-noise operation. With our world-class configurator, you can fully customize your silent PC with options that include:

  • CPUs with Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7/i9 Processors, Intel® Core™ X-series Processors, Intel® Xeon® W Processors or Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors
  • RAM up to 2TB DDR4 ECC RDIMMs
  • PCIe – up to 7 PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots
  • Drives – Up to 8 SATA Drive Bays

Features of Thinkmate VSX silent PC workstations

Our VSX silent PC workstations are built with:

  • Dual-Chamber Chassis expertly engineered to reduce heat and noise by increasing airflow efficiency and isolating the power supply from the rest of the system components.
  • Ultra-Quiet Power Supplies that offer flat, low-profile modular cables for easy cable routing and increased airflow. A high-efficiency design reduces electricity usage and minimizes heat generation. An intelligent fan speed system regulates the ultra-quiet 120mm double ball bearing fan.
  • Award-Winning Heatsinks that are fitted with ultra-low noise cooling fans and an outstanding reliability thermal compound for silent PC cooling.
  • Solid-State Drives that have no moving platters, eliminating vibration and requiring no extra cooling.
  • Hard Disk Drives that are capped to 7,200RPM to minimize vibration in the chassis while providing optimal performance.
  • Intel® Smart Response Technology and SSD caching that increase workstation speed and power at no cost to the system's silent rating.
  • Fanless Video Cards from ATI and NVIDIA with innovative 0dB thermal solutions which satisfy the silent environment demand of studios, home theaters, and offices.
  • Silent Quiet Fans that strike a careful balance of moving the maximum amount of air over the hottest components while minimizing system noise, thanks to highly optimized blade geometry, time-tested bearings, and variable fan speed settings.

When configuring your system, use our instant Noise Level Estimate for a best-guess calculation on the noise of your custom workstation based on your selections. Keep an eye on the Noise Level Estimate as you change video cards, hard drives, power supply, and other component options to keep the noise to a minimum while achieving the best silent PC performance.

FAQs: What is a silent PC?

What is a silent PC?

A silent PC is a computer workstation that is designed to produce little to no noise during operation.

How is a PC made silent?

The noisiest parts of a PC are typically the fans used to cool the system and the drives on which data is stored. A quiet PC can be achieved by reducing the amount of power required to operate the machine (to require less cooling) and to use quieter fans or fanless cooling methods. Solid-state drives can be used to eliminate the vibration caused by hard drives with spinning platters.
