Having built many a PC, I can honestly say it’s pretty simple building a machine using stock or aftermarket components and parts. However, when noise is an issue, you have to start doing more in depth homework as there are plenty of noisy components these days. But there are very few components that can help cut down or eliminate noise all together. This is where companies that specialize in innovation related to silence can help. Today we get to see the results of Puget Systems’ quest to build the quietest enthusiast based PC on the planet: The Serenity.

"Heat pipes are made flexible by inserting a flexible bellows section between the evaporator heat input section and the condenser heat output section. Flexible heat pipes are made from a wide range of metal materials and use a variety of working fluids depending on the application.
Flexible heat pipes can be installed in either gravity-aiding or against-gravity orientations. The against-gravity orientation is possible because of Thermacore’s proprietary flexible wick structures used to return the working fluid to the evaporator section. The cold plate portion attaches to the surface to be cooled and the other end attaches to the heat sink. The flexible section allows for ease of installation, and it accommodates any relative motion between the heat source and the heat sink. The condenser region can be cooled by air cooled fins, like many Thermacore products."
