“You’ve seen system build guides on other tech web sites before. They are usually shopping lists of components recommended for the “Ultimate Gaming Rig” or “Mini PC” or what have you. There’s nothing wrong with these types of guides — otherwise we would not be proposing to do them ourselves — but there’s no question they can be improved. The unique selling proposition (to borrow a phrase from marketing 101) of our Silent System Build Guides is that not only will we provide suitable lists of up-to-date recommended components for a particular type of computer, but we will actually build these computers, and run and test them acoustically under tough actual-use conditions in our anechoic chamber.”

SPCR are updating their silent server build with new parts that have arrived on the market recently. While the idea behind the server is similar to what we saw in the Puget Systems Serenity system that Ryan reviewed, the focus on the system is slightly different. This system ends up with six HDDs as well as an IcyDock for backup and is extremely quiet even for an SPCR build; even better it will only set you back ~$1200.
