Project Lab: Building a Silent PC from Legacy Hardware - FrostyTech.com Project Lab: Building a Silent PC from Legacy Hardware
Sun Sep 02, 2012 | 11:59A | PermaLink BY: Max Page
Using components you already have lying around, you may very well be able to build a nearly silent PC. With that said, unless you have some newer components available, you may not be able to go truly silent without spending some money. Low RPM fans, fanless power supplies, and SSDs are key to the quest for quiet. While I ended up spending around $330 for my project, only $250 of that was related to noise. A quick search online for custom built Quiet PCs show prices upwards of $4,000, so depending on your computing needs and what you already have lying around, it very well could be worth the time and effort it takes to put together your own Quiet PC."
