Quiet PC MiniQube Fanless

As the largest of the Qube family, the MiniQube is still impressively diminutive but offers the advantage of being able to accommodate 64GB memory, up to three drives and multiple PCI Express cards, as well as being equally attractive!

Good things come in small packages

The MiniQube offers an unbeatable blend of style and substance. It can accommodate full-size PCI Express cards and up to three drives. It uses a conventional fully-featured MicroATX motherboard. And because we offer the latest power-frugal processors, it is cooled without any fans. The power supply is a fully integrated unit so there are no black "bricks" to have lying around behind the PC. We offer an affordable semi-fanless PSU as well as fully fanless power supplies. The semi-fanless power supply has a fan that will only operate if its running temperature climbs to dangerous levels, so in normal use there will be no noise, no dust, no moving parts and no maintenance.

Features

  1. Tiny Micro-ATX fully-featured, fully configurable PC with space for multiple PCI-E cards
  2. Silent and fanless cooling design for no noise or dust build-up
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
  5. Two year warranty with open-case policy
  6. Configurable with up to 64GB memory, Core i7 CPU

Intel's 8th Generation Processors

This PC takes advantage of Intel's latest Coffee Lake CPUs. These processors have broken the mold as they now feature more cores and threads compared to previous generations. The Core i3 now features four cores and the i5 and i7 versions are now 6 core CPUs, which is an increase of two cores for each processor. As well as an increase in core count, the amount of threads for each CPU has also gone up, meaning more multi-tasking can be achieved. These additional cores and threads really make the 8th Generation a great performer. For example, the Core i3 8350K CPU is now equivalent in terms of performance to the 7th Gen Core i5 7600K but costs significantly less - giving you more performance for less money.

You'd think there would be a downside to all this extra performance but to be honest we cannot think of any. The CPUs have a maximum Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 91W for the K-suffix and 65W or 35W for the others, meaning they can take advantage of the NoFan fanless CPU coolers and be cooled without the need for a fan! Now that is fantastic (pun intended).

We also have available Intel's cost effective Pentium GOLD 8th Gen CPUs. These CPUs are perfect for cost conscious customers looking for great performance on a budget. They are ideal for a general purpose/office PC as they have two cores and four threads, allowing for reasonable multi-tasking performance.

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.

So 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 choose an SSD or M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs. A conventional HDD would store other data but remember that if you intend to have a totally silent PC, you might want to forgo the HDDs altogether as they will make some noise due to their moving parts.

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.
