Default Quiet PC/Zalman TNN 300 System

Taking a look through a PC's specifications usually tells you exactly what's contained inside. You, the buyer, then makes the choice based on the best performance/features for a given amount of money. You inevitably know what kind of performance to expect, because 'sites like HEXUS provide detailed graphs and commentary outlining just how fast a particular PC is. What's not usually covered in the spec. sheet and glossed over on most reviews is the level of noise most modern PCs make. Cooling, say, a high-end Athlon 64 or LGA775 Pentium 4 system in a responsible manner requires the use of multiple fans that combine to push the overall PC noise profile to uncomfortable levels. Generally-speaking, then, powerful PCs and operating quietness tend to be mutually exclusive.

A number of PC vendors have tried to make their systems quieter by using, say, intelligent heatpipe cooling or larger, slower-spinning fans. What they all still have in common is the need to use fans, up to 6 in many cases, to keep the PSU, CPU, graphics card and motherboard cool enough for utter stability at high clock speeds. It's a step in the right direction, granted, but that's just not quiet enough for some folks, who demand excellent performance and literally no sound from their machines.

Help is at hand from the folks at Quiet PC. As the name implies, the company specialises in marketing components whose sole aim is to maintain regular performance with the lowest possible noise. Quiet PC has teamed up with Zalman to offer a system that is literally silent in operation yet still offers decent performance. Want to see how it's accomplished? Read on to find out more about the Quiet PC/Zalman TNN 300.
