If you want a PC that's truly silent, you need it to be completely passive, and that means that you can't go for your run of the mill, mix and match PC build - you're going to have to go to a specialist and one such specialist is Hush Technologies, writes Riyad Emeran.

The Hush ATX system is a full PC built using pretty standard components, but without the use of a single fan. This isn't the first totally passive system we've seen though. A while back we looked at the Poweroid 1204, which was based on a Zalman fanless case. This was a very impressive system, but it was very large and designed to be used as a performance PC. Hush, on the other hand, designs its own system cases, and is more interested in the style-conscious consumer who wants something that makes a visual impression rather than an audible one.

Leaving aside the fact that this Hush is a silent PC, let's look at it from a purely aesthetic point of view. Finished in solid aluminium with a brushed finish, the Hush wouldn't look out of place in any living room - no matter how much high-end AV equipment you happen to have in there. But unlike many PCs, the Hush's beauty is far more than skin deep. The build quality of the Hush is nothing short of staggering, and at the risk of sounding stereotypical, the whole package has a feel of precision German engineering - like the PC equivalent of a Porsche Carrera GT.

like it myself also!

i believe al pc-case makers and also others should be thinking in this way...and not be putting some 5-10 ventilators or water cooled systems to cool things down...although i know its harder from day to day to keep things cooled enough

That looks like a real nice case. That could definitely go in my den, a beige box wouldn't. Looks like they need to add a firewire port. With the success that Shuttle has had witht here small form factor pc's over the last year, this should be a hot market segment over the next few years. The prices will come down, I'm sure.
