Quiet PC Serenity 8 Office

- Replaces the Quiet PC Serenity Office

An excellent quality fully-built 8th Gen quiet PC, using best value high performance components. This high-specification machine doesn't compromise on performance and comes with a two-year fully inclusive warranty.

Achieving absolute PC silence is not the cheapest way of buying a PC as Nofan's incredible IcePipe cooler demonstrates. However, for customers who are prepared to accept a very small amount of running noise, we are delighted to offer the Serenity 8 which is a fully-built PC system, ready to go. It is designed with performance and quietness in mind, using components which we feel offer the best balance of speed, quietness and value. The machine can be configured to your exact specification and offers, as you would expect, incredibly quiet operation which is barely audible.

Features

  1. Fully built quiet PC system, configurable according to your budget
  2. Selected quiet components offer great value and minimal running noise
  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

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.

RAID Options

The Serenity 8 Office has a choice of two motherboards. The reason for this is to give greater options when RAIDING drives. The ASUS H370-A is RAID compatible but it only supports RAID for SATA devices, it does not support RAID for two M.2 drives. The ASUS Z370-A motherboard on the other hand does support RAID for SATA devices and M.2 drives. Therefore if you would like to RAID M.2 drives and maybe SATA devices then opt for the Z370 motherboard, if not opt for the cheaper H370 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

Just the job!

,

Having built all my own machines over the past 20yrs+ I decided to buy a fully built system. I wanted something with a good bit of umph and couldn't be bothered to spec it and build it this time.

This machine has met my needs, in fact, so far, it has far exceeded them. The build standard is very good, the service received excellent (as it always is with Quiet PC) and at this time I could not be happier. I did have to rebuild the OS because I wanted Windows configured to put all user data off the SSD boot drive and onto the larger data HDD, this isn't hard to do and it would have been good if it had been an option when configuring the machine.

All in all I'm a very happy customer, thank you Quiet PC
