Nofan IcePipe A40-H67 Silent PC

- Replaced by the Nofan IcePipe A40-Z68 Silent PC

We are now offering a fully-built 100% silent PC, 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!

Using Nofan's revolutionary Set-A40 as a starting point, we are proud to offer the IcePipe A40-H67 Silent PC 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 16 gigabytes of memory and an Intel Sandy 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 by up to 12%. Although Microsoft Windows will run happily on 2GB of memory, unless you are on a serious budget, we recommend a minimum of 4GB to ensure that the machine has plenty to spare and will always offer excellent responsiveness even when running multiple applications simultaneously.

The motherboard is a Gigabyte "UD" (Ultra-Durable) series model which uses two ounces of copper for both the power and ground layers, as well as 50,000-hour lifespan Japanese solid capacitors and low-resistance MOSFET components. This approach is designed to improve stability and long-term reliability of the motherboard which is, after all, the heart of the machine.

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 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.

Our warranty runs for two years and is "collect and return" 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.

Exactly what I was looking for

,

This was exactly what I was looking for. A truly silent PC without compromising on system performance and it uses the standard PC architecture, so that I can easily upgrade or modify it later if the need arises. The exception to this is that the 16x PCI Express slot is not accessible, but it's not something that I need to use anyway as I don't use my PC for games - if you are looking for a top end gaming rig then you'll need to look elsewhere, however.

My build is: i7 2600k with a Vertex 3 SSD (I asked for a Vertex 3 instead of a Corsair; the Vertex 3 is a bit faster).

The result: this machine is blisteringly fast, but completely quiet. I've had it for a month now and it is continuing to perform superbly. The CPU temp is typically around 36C in normal (i.e. light) use - ambient temp 20C. Running the Prime95 torture test (100% CPU on all cores) for 15 minutes saw it steady at 68C.

Lastly, I'd just like to mention the excellent build quality and customer service.
