In the past few years, and especially the recent times, many newer computers require more and more raw power to yield the performance that is demanded. Such raw power only transfers to performance in ideal conditions. These ideal conditions can be achieved through the help of cooling. With PC?s constantly requiring more power and cooling, the ideal condition becomes one in which loud noise and non-aesthetic products (such as Computer Cases with fans on the side) dominate.
In order to help with this crisis, many companies have released products which are quiet and yet, still maintain the proper temperature for the performance to continue. Some of these products include quiet fans, quiet coolers, and noise dampeners. By purchasing a new computer with these products, an aesthetically pleasing, yet powerful computer can be achieved.
The Heart of the Bird
In order for the parts of the computer to ?speak? with each other, a mainboard must be used. This mainboard is commonly called a motherboard. The center of the motherboard is a chipset, which demands excessive cooling. Although many companies use loud and obnoxious fans, Asus has constantly provided powerful, yet somewhat quiet components. For this reason, the Asus A7V266-E is a very good choice for the quiet PC.
Another integral part of the computer is the Central Processing Unit, dubbed the CPU. This CPU performs basic functions, and is the core of the computer. Consequently, it must require the most cooling, since it is the most powerful. The actual choice of the CPU is a trivial matter. It is important to strive for pure power from the CPU. For this reason, the AMD Athlon XP series of CPU?s prove to be an excellent choice for any PC.
