chromax.black design

The NH-U12A chromax.black is black from head to toe: featuring a black coated heatsink, a black fan with black anti-vibration pads, black fan clips and black mounting parts, it’s right at home in all-black builds and easy to integrate with other colour schemes.

Colour-customisable

Using the optional NA-HC7 and NA-HC8 heatsink covers as well as the NA-SAVP1 anti-vibration pads (available in black, blue, green, red, yellow, white), the NH-U12A chromax.black can be fully customised to fit popular build colour schemes such as black and red or black and white.

I was very impressed with the site and following a number of emails to the technical support manager ordered a high spec fast set up. the PC and monitors arrived within the week and were extremely well protected for transit. After a couple of minor setbacks with getting the monitors to talk to the PC I managed to get started. I first became concerned when transferring data files from my pen drive to my HDD it appeared very slow and wouldn't close so I overrode the shutdown and then the PC wouldn't boot up. You can imagine the disappointment over £4000 for a PC which wouldn't work. I contacted the support manager who immediately gave me the option of a refund or they would collect the PC, investigate and repair. I opted for the repair they collected the PC 2 days later and on the 4th day advised me it was the HDD which had broken down (nothing QPC can do about that) they said they would replace and ship the PC back to me ASAP. Another couple of days and the machine was back on my desk. I can't fault Quiet PC's service, from initial enquiry through the problems and repair to return to me, no quibbles and extending help and advice throughout. the PC is excellent and so quiet sometimes I can't believe it's switched on. I can't recommend Quiet PC enough, 11 out of 10, thanks guys.
