Quiet PC Sentinel Breeze

- Replaced by the Quiet PC Sentinel Breeze

This high-specification compact PC comes fully-built and ready to go. It is a more affordable but just as high-performing version of its 100% silent brother, the Sentinel Fanless. It can be used as a general purpose machine or a dedicated media PC.

Beauty, power and silence

The Sentinel Breeze PC offers great performance, low power consumption and very quiet running noise. Only 110mm high and 250mm wide, it is functional, attractive and unintrusive. The machine is supplied in a shot-blasted finish and its fascia is clean, elegant and uncluttered.

Features

  1. Fully built quiet PC, configurable to your exact requirements
  2. Uniquely designed for high performance and low running noise
  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. Mini ITX motherboard offers many features and low power consumption

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. Although Microsoft Windows will run happily on 2GB of memory, we recommend a minimum of 4GB to ensure that the machine has plenty to spare and will always offer excellent responsiveness whilst running PVR software such as Windows Media Center or XBMC.

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 playback

If you like to watch Blu-ray films then we offer an optional Blu-ray player which is a slimline slot-loading model. 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.

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

All versions of Windows 7 include 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.

Additional Cooling

For hotter running processors (65W or greater) we recommend that you choose the additional quiet 80mm cooling fan option in the configuration section to help keep the internal temperature (and therefore the CPU fan speed) down.
