So youâ€™ve just spent ages building your new PC. Itâ€™s crammed full of cutting edge components and the hard disk is brimming with the latest games. You sit down, eager to see what it can do, only to find that both gaming isnâ€™t as fun as it could be and itâ€™s hard to concentrate on work. Why? Because you canâ€™t hear yourself think.
You see, as PC components get faster, itâ€™s getting increasingly more difficult to cool everything down, and while chip designers are increasingly focused on efficiency rather than clock speeds, thereâ€™s no getting away from the plethora of fans in a performance PC. This is where a company such as QuietPC comes into its own. QuietPC specialises in PC components that do their job quietly, enabling you to get on with the important task of gaming, or even working, in peace.
With all this in mind, weâ€™re more than quietly excited that the sound chaps at QuietPC.com have supplied us with three prize bundles, each of which you can see in the pictures on this page.
The first prize is pretty comprehensive and the bundle includes an AcoustCase C6607B PC case with pre-fitted acoustic materials. Inside it you can fit ultra-quiet CPU and graphics card coolers, while a set of surround sound gaming headphones are also thrown in for when you want some noise, all from Zalman - no surprise as QuietPC is its official UK distributor. Also included is a noiseless power supply and a heatpipe cooler for a hard disk.
The second bundle offers an AcoustiFan and Ninja CPU cooler and a SilentMaxx Hard disk enclosure, while the third place prize is a SoundGraph iMon Vacuum Florescent Display (VFD), - a remote control, receiver and display for your PC.
To be in with a chance to win one of these gaming bundles you just need to answer this question.
