Eliminating noise with a silent power PC
A silent power PC provides noiseless operation in work environments where the slightest hum from cooling fans or power sources can be a distraction. Most silent PCs are installed in settings such as audio studios, engineering labs, live performance venues, and video editing suites.
Thinkmate provides a family of virtually silent workstations that combine a sound-absorbing dual-chamber chassis, silent PC cooling components and 3-year warranty, along with the ability to custom-configure each workstation to exact specifications.
Building a silent power PC
A silent power PC workstation incorporates a number of technologies and strategies to minimize the sound generated by a computer's power supply.
- Employing higher efficiency parts helps to reduce waste heat and minimizes the need for airflow, which also reduces the noise generated by fans.
- Choosing quieter fans and more intelligent fan controllers helps to reduce the sound generated from these cooling devices.
- Deploying powerful heatsinks helps to noiselessly dissipate heat and reduce the need for fans.
- Neatly organizing components and cables can maximize room for airflow and reduce the sound generated by turbulence as air flows through the computer casing.
- Using low-noise components can help to reduce the audible whine from electrical coils and power supplies.
- Soundproofing techniques and insulation can help to dampen or contain sound within the computer case.

Components of a Thinkmate silent power PC
Thinkmate silent power PC workstations are available with 1-2 processors, including Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7/i9 Processors, Intel® Core™ X-series Processors, Intel® Xeon® W Processors, Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors. You also have the choice of 1-2 GPUs and maximum RAM up to 2TB DDR4 ECC RDIMMs. Our workstations feature up to 7 PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots and up to 8 SATA drive bays.
A silent power PC from Thinkmate is built with components and features that include:
- Specially designed heatsinks and fans, including an ultra-quiet 120 mm double ball bearing fan to maximize cooling.
- Silent power PC supplies that include flat, modular cables that can be easily routed to improve airflow through the chassis.
- A high-efficiency design that minimizes the use of electricity to reduce the generation of heat.
- An intelligent fan speed system that cools the machine more efficiently.
- Solid-state drives, which do not have spinning platters like hard disk drives and therefore need no extra cooling.
- A dual-chamber chassis that reduces heat by increasing airflow efficiency and minimizes noise by keeping the power supply separate from other components. Soundproofing insulation and three-layer construction of the chassis walls help to improve sound absorption for the most silent PC operation.
- A 3-year warranty with advanced parts replacement can be upgraded to a 5-year warranty with advanced replacement or next business day on-site service.
