The Serenity Mini Gamer is based around Jonsbo's excellent RM3 aluminium chassis, which is an ideal case for customers looking to build a high end gaming system in a small elegant package. From tempered glass side panels to a sleek fully brush aluminium exterior, the RM3 most definitely looks the part!

  2. Selected quiet components offer great value and minimal running noise
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days

Intel's Latest 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 and 9th 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 95W 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).

The best quiet / performance balance

Any air-cooled PC will always be a compromise between quietness (arising from careful cooling design) and performance (which produces heat). This situation affects gamers even more than most because of course, the latest and greatest processors and 3D graphics cards tend to be the ones which run the hottest and which have the loudest fans on them.

We've done a lot of development work in this area to bring you the Serenity Mini Gamer - a fully built high performance PC which we think offers the best of both worlds - virtually silent running (especially when the PC isn't being used for gaming), and extraordinary gaming performance with great cooling design which gives total safety and reliability for your precious CPU and GPU.

Motherboard options

By default we offer the excellent ASUS B360M-A motherboard with this system, which is ideal for good gaming performance. For customers looking for even more features we also offer the ASUS TUF Z390M-Pro Gaming motherboard. The Z390M features everything the B360M-A does along with additional features such as support for 9th gen CPUs, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth built-in, extra USB3.1 ports and better onboard audio and LAN controller, just to mention a few.

PLEASE NOTE: The B360 motherboard support only the Intel 8th Gen CPUs. If you require a 9th Gen CPU please choose the Z390 motherboard.

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.

Customer Reviews

Excellent

,

I bought the predecessor model to this 4 years ago and apart from being shipped with a noisy power supply, which I had to replace, it has operated perfectly, and almost silently ever since. The system did not get perceivably noisier as time went on nor did any other component fail. So I felt confident buying this model again.

The new model is much smaller and the case has glass sides. This looks prettier but it does come with two large, permanently on case fans and is therefore slightly noisier when idle than the previous model. Not much though and under heavy load they are equally quiet which for me is where it matters. The metal top of the case does get very hot under load.

I went for high spec processor and GPU options for gaming and have not had any noise, performance or overheating problems. (Tested at the height of the UK heatwave!) I would definitely recommend this product for serene gaming.
