Quiet PC IcePipe A43 Silent Computer

- Replaces the Nofan IcePipe A43-Z68 Silent PC- Replaced by the Quiet PC Nofan A460 Silent Desktop

Our best-selling 100% silent PC comes fully-built using Nofan's revolutionary IcePipe processor cooling technology. This high-specification machine doesn't compromise on performance and comes with a two-year fully inclusive warranty.

At last - Affordable PC Silence!

Building on Nofan's revolutionary IcePipe silent cooler as a starting point, we are proud to offer the IcePipe A43 which is a fully-built silent PC system, ready to go. It uses Nofan's unique IcePipe processor cooler for no noise, no dust, no moving parts and no maintenance. The machine can be configured to your exact specification and offers, as you would expect, totally silent operation.

Top Performance and Reliability

The PC itself doesn't compromise on performance, and can be built pre-installed with up to 32 gigabytes of memory and an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU. Famous for its excellent performance/value balance, the Core i5 and i7 processors have a quad-core architecture and under heavy loading, will automatically "Turbo Boost" their clock speed. We also offer the Core i3 processor for cost-conscious customers. Regarding memory, we supply a minimum of 4GB to ensure that the machine's performance is not bottlenecked, although upgrading to 8GB or more will ensure that it has plenty to spare and will always offer excellent responsiveness even when running multiple applications simultaneously. We are now offering our systems with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed at no extra charge.

Clean Build™ Promise

The price of many pre-built PCs these days is often supported by cash kickbacks from software companies who pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software and then hope that the customer pays to upgrade to the full version. The downside to this approach is that the new PC comes pre-loaded with a lot of "junkware" which bloats the operating system and can cause severe performance degradation.

Here at Quiet PC we believe that customers have every right to expect the best possible performance from a brand new PC, so every system we build comes with our Clean Build™ promise. We install the operating system (if you order one), motherboard drivers, OS updates and (for Windows 7 only) Microsoft Security Essentials - that's it. You won't be pestered by pop-ups and nag screens and you can get on with using your new PC immediately without having to uninstall lots of junkware first. Your new machine will boot in super-quick time and will stay running quickly for many months and years to come.

Free hardware support and fully inclusive warranty

We offer free hardware technical support for as long as you own the machine. This support covers any hardware query or problem, including advice on maintenance and upgrades. We regret we can't offer software support or training so we would recommend contacting the software vendor in this instance. Support for Ubuntu can be obtained through online forums, or on a commercial basis from Canonical Ltd.

Our hardware warranty runs for two years and is offered on a "collect and return" basis, meaning that you don't need to worry about getting the machine back to us - we will instruct our courier to collect it from you on a day of your choosing, then after we have checked and repaired it we will send it back to you by express courier at our expense. In addition, unlike many other PC suppliers, we have an "open-case" policy which means you are free to open the machine and perform your own minor modifications or upgrades without worrying that your warranty might be affected.

Silence is golden

,

Quietness is a relative term but silence is absolute.

My previous PC was relatively quiet. Many would question what I was making a fuss about.

But after transferring all the stuff from the old to the new Quiet PC IcePipe A43 Silent Computer and finally pushing the power off button on the old PC for the last time, I asked my wife "Can you hear that?"

"No, what?" she replied

"Exactly!"

The whole exercise was worthwhile.

Quietpc answered my one pre-sale question promptly and accurately. The PC arrived in less than the 7 promised days. The box had the invoice and getting started instructions so all the admin was taken care of.

Time to work on the clicking sound coming from the central heating ...

Quiet PC IcePipe A43 Silent Computer

,

My Quiet PC IcePipe A43 Silent Computer includes the fanless CPU Cooler with Nofan CR-95C Copper IcePipe and fanless power supply, while the Seagate 2TB 5900 RPM HDD is installed in a silencer compartment. These features embody very simple ideas to make the computer run silently, allowing music to be heard without interference and generally imparting an aesthetic bonus to everyday computer usage -- no more grinding fans! The contents of the Nofan CS-60 computer chassis dissipate only about 16 W when the computer is asleep or shut down and around 40 W (minimum) when it is active, depending on the task, and this heat is easily taken care of by convection. This computer is really cool!

I ordered the Intel i7 3770S 3.1GHz 65W HD4000 Quad Core CPU and 8GB of DDR3 memory, which together with the 120GB SATA 3.0 SSD make the computer load lightning-fast. All my applications run easily under Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and I am very satisfied with the system performance. Pre-sales advisory service and website layout are excellent and I highly recommend QuietPC.

silent life

,

dear quiet pc - our family are delighted with the new computer, it has replaced an 8 year old mesh time bomb and due to cramped living conditions (big family) the noise had become intolerable...the new found silence is 'deafening' and the performance levels keeping all users happy...email surfing to minecraft and fifa etc, no problems...silence is golden and we want you to know that we appreciate your product, this is the future of computing for sure. many thanks - david cutler

Nofan IcePipe A43-Z77 Silent PC

,

I ordered the A43-Z77 with the Core i7 3770K Processor, 16GB DDR3 Memory, 2x 256GB SSD’s, 2x Blu-ray/DVD Writers and the HD7750 Graphics Card. This machine is very fast, completely silent and works perfectly. The IcePipe CPU cooler is a work of art - and does its job well. I tested this computer using Cinebench and the score made my previous computer (which sounded like a Jumbo jet) look pathetic. So it is true - you can have peace and power. I would recommend this computer (and Quiet PC) to anyone.
