Quiet PC NanoQube Fanless

- Replaces the Quiet PC NanoQube Fanless- Replaced by the Quiet PC NanoQube Plus 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 up to two 2.5 inch hard drives / SSDs, or a single (larger) 3.5 inch hard drive. 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

Top performance and silent operation

The PC itself doesn't compromise on performance, and can be built pre-installed with up to 32 gigabytes of DDR4 memory and an Intel 7th or 6th Generation CPU. Famous for their 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. We also offer the Core i3 and Pentium processors for cost-conscious customers. Regarding memory, we supply a minimum of 8GB to ensure that the machine's performance is not bottlenecked, although upgrading to 16GB or more will ensure that it has plenty to spare and will always offer excellent responsiveness even when running multiple applications simultaneously.

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.

Therefore 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 chose an SSD or M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs and a conventional HDD to store other data.

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.
