Quiet PC MicroQube Gamer

The MicroQube Gamer is housed in the Thermaltake Level 20 VT micro-ATC chassis, which is diminutive but offers the advantage of being able to accommodate full sized graphics cards, as well as tempered glass panels.

Features

  1. Small Micro-ATX fully-featured, fully configurable PC with space for two PCI-E cards
  2. Extremely quiet cooling design for virtually no 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

Good things come in small packages

The MicroQube Gamer offers an unbeatable blend of style and substance. Standing just 348mm tall, the MicroQube can accommodate a graphics card up to 350mm in length and up to six storage drives. It uses a choice of two conventional fully-featured micro-ATX motherboards. And because we offer the latest power-frugal processors, it is cooled with a noise optimised CPU cooler, that provides adequate cooling without unwanted noise.

Thanks to the unique layout of the Level 20 VT chassis the PC is split into chambers. The top chamber houses the motherboard, along with all the devices you care to connect to it. The second chamber sits directly below the motherboard where the not so attractive (but still essential) components sit like the power supply and spinning hard disk drives. There is space for three 2.5” drives on the side of the chassis if you wish them to be viewed from the outside of the chassis.

MicroQube Gamer is surround by 4mm tempered glass panels (apart from the rear and the floor), this gives an unobstructed view into the chassis allowing for some elaborate builds. To keep temperatures down the chassis is supplied with a 200mm fan at the front. This not only provides the system with plenty of cool air but more importantly (from our point of view) it does this with very little noise, in fact Thermlatake specify it only produces 13 dBA! So when paired with a Noctua CPU cooler and one of the quiet power supplies in the configurator below, you’ll have one of the quietest gaming PCs currently available, especially during the non-gaming quiet periods!

Intel’s Latest Generation Processors

This PC takes advantage of Intel’s latest CPUs, which have broken the mould as they now feature more cores and threads compared to previous generations. The Core i3 now features four cores, the Core i5 six cores, the Core i7 has either six or eight cores and the Core i9 is eight cores, which is a significant increase over the 7th gen processors. 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 Intel’s latest CPUs a great performer. For example, the Core i3 8300 CPU is now equivalent in terms of performance to the 7th Gen Core i5 7600 but costs significantly less - giving you more performance for less money.

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 absolute 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.

“As you say quiet pc”

“Have moved over my components to this new tower unit Zalman Z3 ATX Mid Tower PC Case, found it quite easy once i found my motherboard full specs, to fit cables.

Haven’t been able to get the earphone and mic. socket to work on the case and can’t really tell if the change of fan speed is working yet, but no problem,

Yes, I do love the purchase, machine running nice and smooth now, fans working great fantastic bargain for the price , equipped with 4 fans as well, brilliant.
