Quiet PC NanoQube Plus Fanless

- Replaces the Quiet PC NanoQube Fanless

It's hard to describe just how small this PC is. If you want a fully-featured silent machine in a tiny box, this is the one to go for!

Good things come in small packages

Apart from the tiny UltraNUC, the NanoQube is the smallest PC we offer. Unlike the UltraNUC, the NanoQube uses a conventional fully-featured motherboard, albeit a Mini-ITX sized one. The machine can accommodate a M.2 SSD and up to two 2.5" hard drives. And because we offer the latest power-frugal processors, it is cooled fanlessly. The power supply is fanless under normal conditions but has a safety mechanism that operates a very quiet fan if the temperature of the PC exceeds a safe threshold. Unlike the power supplies in many other small PCs, this one is fully integrated so there are no clumsy black "bricks" which you need to have lying around behind the PC. The benefits of fanless operation include no noise, no dust, no moving parts and no maintenance.


  1. Tiny Mini-ITX fully-featured, fully configurable PC
  2. Silent and fanless cooling design for no noise or dust build-up
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
  5. Two year warranty with open-case policy
  6. Configurable with up to 32GB memory, Core i7 CPU and two drives

Intel's 8th Generation Processors

This PC takes advantage of Intel's latest Coffee Lake CPUs. These processors have broken the mold as they now feature more cores and threads compared to previous generations. The Core i3 now features four cores and the i5 and i7 versions are now 6 core CPUs, which is an increase of two cores for each processor. As well as an increase in core count, the amount of threads for each CPU has also gone up, meaning more multi-tasking can be achieved. These additional cores and threads really make the 8th Generation a great performer. For example, the Core i3 8350K CPU is now equivalent in terms of performance to the 7th Gen Core i5 7600K but costs significantly less - giving you more performance for less money.

You'd think there would be a downside to all this extra performance but to be honest we cannot think of any. The CPUs have a maximum Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 91W for the K-suffix and 65W or 35W for the others, meaning they can take advantage of the NoFan fanless CPU coolers and be cooled without the need for a fan! Now that is fantastic (pun intended).

We also have available Intel's cost effective Pentium GOLD 8th Gen CPUs. These CPUs are perfect for cost conscious customers looking for great performance on a budget. They are ideal for a general purpose/office PC as they have two cores and four threads, allowing for reasonable multi-tasking performance.

Two motherboards, HDMI 2.0 option

This PC has two motherboards to choose from. The main reason for this is due to the fact we have had many customers ask if it is possible to run a 4K @ 60Hz TV/Monitor via a HDMI port. For this to happen there has to be a HDMI 2.0 port, but it is very rare for a motherboard to have HDMI 2.0 built in. That is until Gigabyte released their Z370N Wi-Fi motherboard which features a HDMI 2.0 port as standard. This means it is now possible to run anything at 4K @ 60Hz without the need for a graphics card. This not only reduces the overall power consumption of the system, as no graphics card is required, but also reduces the cost of the system. Of course HDMI 2.0 may not be required for all customers and therefore we suggest opting for the less expensive ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I ITX motherboard if that is the case.

Storage considerations

When specifying your new PC's storage options using our system configurator below, you will be offered a choice of drives which vary by price and capacity. There are two primary types of storage. A conventional hard disk drive (HDD) offers huge storage capacity for a low price, but it won't be especially fast and it will generate a certain amount of running noise since it contains a constantly-rotating spindle. A solid state (SSD) or a M2 drive on the other hand, offer tremendous speed and absolutely silent operation, but they cost more than an HDD for any given capacity.

So if you need a lot of storage space (for videos or large quantities of digital photos for example), then we would recommend an HDD. On the other hand, if you prefer silence and speed (especially boot-up speed), then an SSD or M2 drive would be a better choice. Of course, you can have more than one drive, so you could have the best of both worlds by choosing one of each! We recommend that customers choose an SSD or M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs. A conventional HDD would store other data but remember that if you intend to have a totally silent PC, you might want to forgo the HDDs altogether as they will make some noise due to their moving parts.

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.

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 hardware 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.
