Quiet PC Lora 4K Fanless Media PC

This beautifully finished high-end PC offers 4K resolution at 60Hz via the onboard HDMI 2.0 port, therefore it can utilise a non-DisplayPort TV to its full potential.

Beauty and power in your living room

We are pleased to announce a 4K alternative to the Lora Fanless Media PC - the revamped Quiet PC Lora 4K Fanless Media PC - a ground-breaking example of living room PC with the ability to provide 4K support.

With 4K TVs becoming more popular it was only a matter of time before we made a system like this available. Customers have been asking if it is possible for them to connect a PC to their new 4K displays. The main issue with this is that many of the 4K TVs only have HDMI ports and to run a 4K resolution at 60Hz one would have to use DisplayPort. Luckily the motherboard used in this PC is the excellent GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, which supports HDMI 2.0, meaning it is now possible to connect a 4K capable PC to your 4K TV via HDMI.

  2. 100% fanless design gives zero noise and no dust build-up
  3. Features HDMI 2.0, 4K resolution @ 60Hz
  4. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  5. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
  6. Two year warranty with open-case policy

Top Performance and Reliability

The PC itself doesn't compromise on performance, and can be built pre-installed with up to 64 gigabytes of DDR4 memory. Although Microsoft Windows will run happily on 2GB of memory, we recommend a minimum of 8GB to ensure that the machine has plenty to spare and will always offer excellent responsiveness whilst running PVR software such as Windows Media Center.

Despite its diminutive size, it packs a real punch - Intel's new Skylake 6th Generation Core processors gives fantastic performance and low power consumption, allowing the machine to be cooled without any forced air whatsoever. The whole case acts as a processor heatsink, with heat being efficiently transferred from the CPU to the chassis via six copper heatpipes.

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 / Windows Defender - 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.

Blu-ray and DVD playback

If you like to watch Blu-ray films then we offer an optional Blu-ray player. However, Windows does not have the built-in ability to play Blu-ray movie discs and if you would like to be able to do this, we recommend that you purchase third party software to enable the facility. Software such as CyberLink PowerDVD will allow seamless playback and control of Blu-ray movies.

DVD playback is built into Windows 7 but not Windows 10. Therefore if you require DVD playback with Windows 10 we recommend a third party program.

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.

Windows Media Center

Windows 7 includes Windows Media Center which is a great way to watch and record terrestrial and/or satellite TV (in conjunction with a TV tuner card), as well as watching films, viewing photos and listening to music. Unfortunately Windows 10 does not include Windows Media Center and according to Microsoft it never will. We therefore recommend you consider an alternative. The most popular are MediaPortal and Kodi (formally known as XBMC). Both programs offer the facility to do exactly (and much more) what Windows Media Center does, although some configuration is required via plugins (add-ons) supplied by both MediaPortal and Kodi. Both pieces of software are open source which means they are free for personal use and they can be used with any Windows operating system. We highly recommend you take a look at them to see if they are more suited to your needs if Windows 10 is your chosen operating system. Please note that we do not provide support for MediaPortal or Kodi.

Customer Reviews

Super Fast, Quiet, Boots Instantly

,

The build quality and service is excellent.

I installed Linux on the M.2 drive, which is an extremely fast drive, and now it boots almost instantaneously.

To get the best out of this machine put your OS on the M.2 drive, it maybe fiddly, but it is well worth it.
