Maingear Prelude Evaluation

In our opinion, the best way to evaluate a PC is to go through the entire customer experience ourselves. We intend to evaluate not only the hardware but also the entire purchasing process from start to finish. We also evaluate the technical knowledge and the support of the vendor. And the only way to do this is to purchase a system, just like any other customer would.

We donít get hand picked, extensively tweaked systems that are not for consumer consumption. Instead, we take a sample from a companyís everyday production queue and look at everything from a consumer-eye view.

One of best system [H] evaluated insofar.

One area of concern is noise. During the torture test with the PSU fan turned all the way up, the computer ran at 52.5 decibels, with ambient noise of 36.5 dB. Thatís reasonable but still a bit loud Ė even with the PSU at its lowest setting, the computer still ran at 48.5 dB Ė both of these are about as loud as a quiet street, so you wonít have any trouble talking or hearing a normal conversation over the computer, but itís still noticeable.

Nice to know the white noise level at your room. Don't tell me how good you can hear. Mine is ~37dBA, in another word I don't give a darn on a fan that generates <37dBA.

yes that white noise level is SWEET to know and read; should be more of those statements made by review sites, as some sites just won't realise that <30dBA readings are not possible in the average house.
