Quiet PC Serenity VR System

Virtual Reality (VR) is the best thing when it comes to immersive gaming and when you consider the how much popularity the likes of Oculus Rift and HTC Vive have gained it is hard to argue with that statement. Both offer a truly unrivalled gaming experience that has to be tried to be believed! Get teleported to strange new places as you play your way through the many different games that both the Rift and Vive have to offer.

  1. Fully built quiet PC system tailored towards VR gaming
  2. Only the best quiet components offer amazing performance with minimal noise
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs

Being able to play games in VR is not as straightforward as you'd imagine. Both the Rift and the Vive have extremely high minimum recommended specifications. Therefore we felt that we would try to make it as simple as possible when choosing which solution would be best when configuring a PC for the Virtual World. The default options chosen below in the configurator will surpass the minimum specification. Below is an image that details both the Rift's and Vive's minimum specs along with the default configuration of the Serenity VR.

Whether you opt for a system that meets the minimum specifications or look to configure it with higher performing components, we have you covered. Upgrading the CPU, graphics card and increasing the amount of RAM in the system will give a performance boost, especially if you upgrade the graphics card to Nvidia's new GTX 10 series graphics card as these have been designed with VR in mind. They feature Nvidia VRWorks which brings a new level of visual fidelity, performance, and responsiveness to Virtual Reality.

Whatever specification you choose the Cooltek W2 chassis is ideal. Not only is it more than capable of housing high end components it look absolutely gorgeous, perfect if you plan the place the system in a living-room where there is space to wield you virtual sword. The outer casing of the chassis is made from 100% brushed aluminium giving it a high-end feel. The W2 is available with or without a tempered glass window for those who like to admire the internal of their PC. So whether the PC is located on a desk or in the living-room it will blend in perfectly.

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.

Windows Media Center

Unfortunately Windows 10 does not include Windows Media Center, therefore we 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. Please note that we do not provide support for MediaPortal or Kodi.
