Quiet PC Serenity Ultimate Gamer i17

A top quality fully-built very quiet gaming PC, using an Intel 12th gen CPU and powered by an ASUS Z690 motherboard. This formidable machine consists of only the quietest components from brands like ASUS and Noctua.

Features

  1. Fully built quiet PC system tailored for high performance gaming
  2. Selected quiet components offer minimal running noise even during gaming
  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

The philosophy behind the Serenity Ultimate Gamer i17 is to offer the quietest gaming experience possible using just standard off-the-self components. Of course you could go to the extreme of configuring a totally fanless system around Monster Labo’s The Beast, but that is not the most user friendly solution especially if you want to making slight alterations to the system.

Quiet PC + ASUS + Noctua = The quietest air cooled gaming PC ever!

The Ultimate Gamer i17 needs the very best components, which is why you’ll only find that the vast majority of the products used are from ASUS or Noctua. These manufactures are easily leaders in their respective fields. ASUS have produce the best motherboards and graphics cards for decades, while Noctua are without a doubt the world’s most popular air cooling brand. The only components not covered by ASUS or Noctua are the CPU, RAM and storage drives.

ASUS ROG Strix Helios White Edition Chassis

The PC is housed in the ROG Strix Helios White Edition premium mid-tower gaming case, which features three tempered-glass panels, a silver-white aluminium frame and integrated front-panel RGB lighting - making it the perfect choice for showcase builds. The case also features carry handles for easy transportation.

The case is supplied with four ASUS ROG 140mm fans, one at the rear and three at the front. The configurator below has an option to remove these fans and replace them with four Noctua NF-A14 ULN fans. The main reason to do this is to reduce the noise output the PC generates. The ASUS fans, from a noise point of view, are what we would class as “OK”. They are certainly not overly noisy, but we would not consider them to be quiet, especially when you are wanting to configure a very quiet gaming PC.

The case also features a fan control switch, which has two settings, high and low. The table below shows the differences between the ASUS and Noctua fans at both the ‘High’ and ‘Low’ settings. As you can see the noise is much lower on the Noctua fans, and having four of these built into the case provides more than enough airflow for the system to maintain acceptable temperatures.

Fan RPM, High Noise, High Airflow, High RPM, Low Noise, Low Airflow, Low
ASUS ROG A1425L125 1400 25.0 dB(A) 68.0 CFM 900 16.6 dB(A) 45.3 CFM
Noctua NF-A14 ULN 800 11.9 dB(A) 46.9 CFM 650 9.1 dB(A) 39.1 CFM

Other noise reduction features

CPU Cooler - The Intel 12th generation CPUs are their hottest yet so they need good air cooling and the available Noctua CPU cooler for this PC are more than capable of keep the heat generated by the CPU in check! The nosiest CPU cooler on the list is the NH-U12S REDUX, which has a maximum noise level of 25.1 dB(A). For the cooler to achieve this maximum noise level the CPU temperature would need to be consistently in the 90°C range. In normal gaming usage it is the graphics card that is push more than the CPU, so you should never get temperatures in that range while gaming.

Power Supply - The power supplies available are the ASUS ROG STRIX range. These high quality PSUs are 100% modular which helps reduce the amount of cable inside the PC. From a noise point of view at 100% load the noise is 25 dB(A), but the power supply will never be near 100% load. During our tests the 750W power supply maxed out at just under 500W, meaning 65% load, which resulted in a very low noise level of around 15 dB(A). Also, when the PSU is under 40% load the fan inside the power supply will stop and therefore make zero noise.

With all of the noise generating components taken care of, we guarantee that this PC will be unbeatable in regards to performance and noise levels for the components it can be configured with.

Intel Alder Lake 12th Gen Processor

The 12th Gen Intel processors offer a significant improvement over past generations, thanks to the introduction to Performance-cores (P-cores) and/or Efficient-cores (E-cores). The processors P-cores are optimised for single and lightly-threaded performance, while its E-cores, are optimised for scaling highly-threaded workloads. That means gamers, creators, and professionals can harness both intelligence and power to enhance the experiences that matter the most. All processors on the list feature P-cores, but not all offer E-cores. To give you an idea of much of an improvement the 12th gen is over the 11th Gen processors, take a look at the table below that shows some PassMark CPU Benchmarks, the higher the number the better the performance the processors offers.

12th Gen Processor Core i5 12400 Core i7 12700 Core i9 12900
PassMark score 19,492 31,288 36,621
11th Gen Processor Core i5 11400 Core i7 11700 Core i9 11900
PassMark score 17,072 20,051 23,031

The figures above are as of September 2022. They do change over time.

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 chose an SSD or M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs and a conventional HDD to store other data, but remember that if you intend to have a totally silent PC you might want to forgo the HDDs all together 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 Windows Security - 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 at least 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

Silent but with all the power

,

Awesome build, full of quality. Would I recommend? Yes, certainly under the current pandemic, whereby trying to buy a GPU is very hard. This has the GPU I really wanted, the build is for people who want a quiet gaming experience.

It is all housed in a case that oozes quality and is big enough to accommodate water cooling if you prefer. Replace all fans with Noctua for the best experience in my opinion.

If you want a silent system and cannot wait for the chip shortage to recover, this is a good choice to purchase. You will likely be very happy with this PC.
