The quest for a completely silent PC
« on: May 15, 2018, 09:39 PM »
I’ve been trying to make my computers quieter for nearly three decades.  Custom liquid cooling loops, magnetically-stabilised fluid-dynamic bearings, acoustic dampeners, silicone shock absorbers, you name it.  Well, last week I finally managed to build a completely silent computer.  Without further ado…

Neat! Now all he needs is a good mechanical keyboard and all his time, effort, and money will be for nothing. :P

Took him a lot longer than necessary, Zalman had a silent computer case years ago, so long ago it's been discontinued (about 12 years): TNN 500AF

I wonder why they replaced it with a liquid cooled case though...
Replaced by the Zalman LQ1000 Z-Machine Hybrid Liquid Cooled Case (w/WB5+)

Possibly for the gaming crowd they needed a higher cooling capacity than just straight passive.

Plus it has more "bling"  ;D

No moving parts means this PC is also completely silent.
