FAQ

  • How do I measure fan size?

    The size of fan you need will generally be determined by the size of the fan fitting position in your PC case. The sizes of all the fans on our website are shown as measured along any one of the fan’s four sides, NOT the distance between the fan’s screw holes! Our most popular fan size is 120mm, followed by 80mm. This isn’t really dictated by customer preference, but more by recent designs of PC cases.

    As for the thickness (depth) of the fan, generally 25mm (1 inch) is by far the most common depth, although smaller fans can have shallower depths such as 15mm or even 10mm. All our fans are 25mm thick unless otherwise stated. If you have any questions about which fan you should order, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    If you know the distance between the fan mounting screw holes but don’t know what fan size to order, please see the following table. Note that the mounting hole measurements shown below are taken horizontally or vertically between the holes and not diagonally.

    Screw hole spacings and fan sizes

    32mm between screw holes:40mm fan size
    40mm between screw holes:50mm fan size
    50mm between screw holes:60mm fan size
    60mm between screw holes:70mm fan size
    72mm between screw holes:80mm fan size
    83mm between screw holes:92mm fan size
    105mm between screw holes:120mm fan size


  • I received a small cable (resistor) with my fan; what is it for?

    The resistor cable (also called Ultra Low Noise or ULN cable) is designed to allow the fan to run slightly slower for even quieter operation. The benefit in lower running noise is significant. Although the airflow will be reduced slightly, this usually has minimal effect on PC temperature. We would generally recommend using the ULN resistor cable for best results in almost all circumstances.

  • How can I tell which way the air blows through the fan?

    Hold the fan so that the round fan sticker is facing you. You are looking at the rear of the fan. When you plug the fan in, the air will be blowing towards you. If you want a fan to act as an air intake, then the fan sticker will be facing the inside of the case. Some fans also have two small arrows moulded into their plastic housing - one arrow shows the direction of airflow, and the other (at 90°) shows the direction of blade rotation.

  • Is it possible to use a 4-pin PWM fan or CPU cooler with a motherboard which has only 3-pin fan headers on it?

    Electrically, there is no problem doing this - the fourth pin on the fan cable is used purely for PWM control and is not needed in order for the fan to run. So you can plug the 4-pin fan connector onto the 3-pin motherboard fan header, leaving the fourth pin not connected to anything. The fan will potentially run at full speed, so if you would like to reduce the speed of the fan you will need to adjust the fan speed setting in your BIOS or use fan control software such as SpeedFan in Windows.

    The only other problem to consider is that occasionally, components immediately adjacent to the motherboard fan header can get in the way of the larger 4-pin fan connector, physically preventing connection. This problem also occurs if you try to use an in-line fan speed controller such as the one made by Gelid.

    Another avenue to explore is the possibility of using a bay-mounted fan controller. Several models are available now which provide 4-pin fan headers, so this is an easy way to use 4-pin PWM fans in a PC system which has only 3-pin fan headers on its motherboards. When using this method, you may find it necessary to disable any fan warning settings in your motherboard BIOS, since the motherboard may incorrectly believe that its CPU fan has failed when the fan is connected to a fan controller rather than directly to the motherboard itself.

“ORDERING

Ordered Sentinel fanless PC with monitor and speakers. Original estimate to assemble my order was 10 days, but it was ready in about 5. Was kept well informed of delivery progress by emails and texts. Products very well packaged and arrived in tip-top condition in a single large carton.

Sentinel PC a beautiful piece of kit - thick aluminium case that could withstand a regional nuclear war, top-quality components throughout, elegant and very compact design - resembles a top-end hi-fi amplifier.

So nice to get the Windows OS disk and all driver disks included as well. Shouldn’t ever need them, but great to have them just in case. Good Quiet PC manual supplied that explains what all the components are and how to fit additional ones should you desire to.

SETUP

Two teething problems during initial set-up:

1. BenQ monitor did not default to HDMI so had no picture when I plugged in. One phone call to Quiet PC put this right in seconds - just needed to find monitor button to change input mode.

2. Cable to connect secondary hard-drive had been omitted. Again, one phone call and was straight through to a very apologetic and knowledgeable service engineer who talked me through identifying the problem. Cable arrived by post the next day and I fitted it myself - not that I needed it to set-up and use the PC anyway.

Despite these minor glitches, PC so much more pleasant to set up than any other I have owned because totally free from junkware - no trial versions of antivirus programs or other unwanted craplications nagging you to buy and upgrade, no pre-installed browser toolbars or homepages that default to the manufacturer or try to force you to use some absurd search engine or “app store” just because someone bunged someone a wodge of cash, etc. You get the OS and that’s it - pure and clean.

Also, how fantastic to be able to pick up the phone and call the engineers directly. No queues, no call centres, no impenetrable accents, no read-from-a-set-menu answers; you’re directly through to the people who built your PC.

IN USE

PC is as quiet as a Trappist monk on a sponsored silence walking in soft shoes on deep-pile carpet. Can’t even hear a mains hum. Only the optical drive makes any (brief) noises (when it has a CD/DVD/BlueRay disk inside).

It’s amazing what a difference this lack of noise makes to a room in a house. After this, I’ll never go back to a PC with fans - failure-prone, humming, buzzing dust-suckers. Fan-free is the future.

Fitted with a SSD primary drive, the speed of the PC is astonishing. Goes like slop off a shovel. Reboot? Blink and you’ll miss it.

CONCLUSION

Pricey, but a truly top-quality unit and terrific customer support. Worth every penny.”
