This experiment in noise reduction resulted in a relatively quiet PC where the noise of the rpm hard drives was the loudest sound. Would it do the job running desktop applications, would it be stable and cool with only one fan in the whole case, and would it run linux? That brings up the case size considerations. This VIA C3 uses.

This is the same power dissipation as the new mobile chips. Colocation Server Hosting by Binary Environments. There are actually many book-size PC cases available, and I found some as small as 12″Wx3.

Now it was time to look for that cool running processor that would make the truly ‘quieter-than-a-whisper’ PC, a reality. The thermal specs show that the new Tualatin Celeron would be dissipating 28 watts of heat vs. My preference was for a slim-line case like the whuttle or something around the size and shape of the thick yellow pages phone book, m25 sits under my 19″ Viewsonic monitor.

Accounting for the slightly larger size were the 5 expansion slots: Modified Item see all Modified Item. A safe recommendation is to keep the cpu below C at full load.

Armed by this research into flex ATX motherboards, slim-line cases and cool running processors I was ready to start building a ‘quieter-than-whisper’ PC. Front view of ‘naked’ Aopen HD case. That brings up the case size considerations. Now its time to check the internet and see if this hsuttle VIA C3 is for real.
This VIA C3 uses. Since the processor is not overclocked, I was able to wire all 3 fans for 7 volts instead of 12 volts and thus reduce the rpm and resultant noise even more, while still keeping cpu temperatures around 45C.
Not wanting to go the route of water cooling or putting the computer in the basement and running the cables through the floor,the next best solution is to try for a cooler shhttle processor, which will not require as many fans. SPCR is optimized for viewing at x screen size. Now both these boards come with built-in video,sound and lan. Condition see all Condition.
The only negative to spending way too much time on the PC was noise — which eventually resulted in this project.
