Peace at last
Very happy with this.
I ordered it with an i5 4670 and a passively cooled HD7750 graphics card. In normal use, and even when gaming, the passive cooling is sufficient. For example, the 3dmark benchmark suite gets the cores up to 63°C and the GPU up to 73°C (and scores 2158 on the Fire Strike test). It is possible to get the CPU temperature to reach 100°C if you run something really demanding, resulting in a loss of processor speed, but I'm happy to trade that for the silence.
My only gripe: The power button on the case is spongy and unresponsive, but as the system can be powered on and off from the keyboard, this can be worked around.
And I have to say, the service from QuietPC has been awesome.
Great service, great product
Good to be able to talk direct to people and exchange emails to get pre-sales advice. Purchased a pre-configured NoFan i7 system with SSD, HD and fanless graphics card, running Windows 8 Pro. System arrived very quickly. I'm really pleased with the PC, easy to setup, good build quality - 'silent power' - no more noise!
