Cube Silent Intel PC 8th Gen, Nvidia Powered Passive PC
The most affordable silent desktop PC!
Building on the success of our range of silent PC, we are delighted of offer this updated version. The Nofan CPU Cooler used here is based around Intel new 8th Generation architecture, meaning it is compatible with Intel's new 6-core i7 8700K CPU (or lower) it is also a more cost effective alternative to our normal heat pipe cooling system featured in our other desktop fanless units. We have also rehoused the computer in a more affordable Thermaltake V1 Case.
Intel's 8th Generation Processors
As mentioned, this PC takes advantage of Intel's latest Coffee Lake CPUs. These processors have broken the mold as they now feature more cores and threads compared to previous generations. The Core i3 now features four cores and the i5 and i7 versions are now 6 core CPUs, which is an increase of two cores for each processor. 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 8th Generation a great performer. For example, the Core i3 CPU is now equivalent in terms of performance to the 7th Gen Core i5 - giving you more performance for less money.
Don’t let its size fool you though, this little machine boasts top of the line enthusiast grade Graphics Cards and Desktop CPU’s rarely seen in a system of this size, delivering possibly the highest FPS per Litre of any pre-built and fully upgradeable system on the market today!
Which CPU cooler should I use?
Both options available with this unit provide addequate cooling however the larger, NoFan CR-95C provides better cooling performacen at a sacrafice of the Graphics Card, due to its size it will cover the PCIE slot. A perfect choice however for those seeking heavily intensive CPU tasks whilst remaining completely silent due to its fanless design.

- How do Fanless PC’s work?
Fanless PC’s use a technology which involves heat sinks instead of fans, this is called PASSIVE COOLING. The CPU/Graphics Card (if selected) have heat sinks affixed to them, which is made of extremely heat conductive materials, the heat is then channelled through the heat sink, to the exterior of the computer allowing the heat to be dissipated.
-What are the benefits of a Fanless PC?
There are plenty of benefits to using a fanless PC, such as Noise, cooling, reliability and ruggedness.
For example, for the general user it results in simply a quieter experience, perfect for a home media set up or for audio recording. In the industrial world they can be used in challenging environments involving dust or high temperature.
Fanless technology gives better reliability for the product and due to the lack of maintenance or mechanical parts it will work flawlessly over the years to come. When a computers fan circulates air inside the PC, it not only moves air into the computer but also with it debris, such as dust and dirt, this can build up over time and interfere with the electronic components. By using a fanless computer you can eliminate the inflow of debris that can potentially harm the PC over time.
Power Saving – With no mechanical moving parts the power required to run them for prolonged periods of time is also greatly reduced.
