When you need an ultra-quiet PC, Thinkmate offers a family of whisper-quiet VSX Workstations that raise the bar for silent PC technology. Featuring specially designed fans and heatsinks with a low-noise chassis and ultra-quiet PC power supplies, our silent workstations are built to let you focus on your work, rather than the noise from your computer.
Ultra-quiet PCs are in demand in workspaces like video editing and audio recording studios, live performance venues, and certain laboratory settings where even the slightest bit of noise from a workstation is acceptable. To build a completely silent PC, manufacturers must eliminate, reduce, or dampen noise generated by several key components.
Fans that are designed to cool CPUs, video cards, and the case of a computer are the largest source of sound. The air displaced by fan blades and the hum from the fan's mechanics can be quite noisy, and manufacturers building a quiet PC will work to both reduce heat generated by components (minimizing the need for fans) and to use low-noise components with features like optimized blade geometry that are designed to produce less sound. Heat sinks can also help to provide noiseless cooling.
The other sources of noise in a PC typically come from the vibration of hard disk drives, which use spinning platters to read and write data, and from the whine of electrical coils and transformers used within power supplies, motherboards, and other components. Manufacturers can use ultra-quiet components to minimize or eliminate this noise, as well as soundproofing techniques to dampen or contain noise within the computer case.
Thinkmate has been a world-class provider of custom computer and server equipment since 1986. Our VSX workstations can be easily ordered online with our custom configurator which lets you select from a variety of ultra-quiet PC components and immediately get a read on your costs and on the impact of your choices on noise-free performance. Our online ordering system has more customizable options than any other system builder on the web. And if you can't find exactly what you need on our website, our expert solution architects are just a call or click away to help you configure the ultra-quiet PC you need.
Thinkmate ultra-quiet PC workstations are available with 1-2 GPUs, 6-8 drive bays, 1-2 processors, and up to 2TB max RAM. A fourth-generation silent design expertly balances leading-edge performance with low-noise operation to deliver an ultra-quiet, ultra-powerful PC workstation.
Thinkmate ultra-quiet PCs feature:
When you come to Thinkmate for an ultra-quiet PC, you can rely on:
An ultra-quiet PC is a computer built with components that produce zero or minimal noise when the computer is operating.
An ultra-quiet PC is designed with components such as motherboards, CPUs, and video cards that minimize the amount of power that it takes to run the machine, thereby minimizing or eliminating the fans required to cool the system. (Fans are typically the most noise-producing component of a PC.) Solid-state drives are used in place of hard drives with spinning platters, which also produced noise. Soundproofing of the PC case can also help with noise reduction.
