" My old Athlon Thoroughbred-B machine, in use as a home linux server, had some of the noisiest case fans ever made and an AMD cooler that came with the CPU. The darn thing sounded like a military transport hovercraft going full speed. But two 80mm Silenx case fans and one Nexus AXP-3200 CPU cooler later, and you can't hear the computer except in the dead of night when the house is as silent as a tomb. During the day, you can't hear it at all over ambient noises. The CPU is even running cooler by 15--20 C! Thanks, EndPCNoise!!PS -- there was one downside. The new CPU cooler did arrive with minor damage, hence my lower rating of their shipping process. The packaging was broken and the vanes were all tilted a bit in the same direction, like it had been pressed upon from the top. It was not enough damage to prevent it from working properly, though. No way to know if the damage happened at their end or in the hands of the shipping company."
"Bought a high-end replacement for a failed MainGear system. My main goal was a quiet system that performed well. That's exactly what I got.Because quiet was most important, I got 4 WD 640GB hard drives and ran them in RAID 0 off a HighPoint ROcket RAID 2640 PCIe card. About 2 weeks after I got the system, one of the hard drives failed. They cross shipped a new one immediately (2nd day) and I was back up and running in a few days. About 2 months later, the power supply failed. They send me a new one, but I didn't want to wait, so I bought one at Fry's Electronics. Now, I have a backup PSU.I can't really blame them for either failure.The systems are not cheap, but you get what you pay for.They could be a little bit more communicative regarding tracking #'s, though.The people were very friendly and I'd definitely do business with them again."
"I have been dealing with endpcnoise.com for several years, having bought several systems plus accessories. These guys are great! They choose high-quality components and the finished systems are QUIET. I am very sensitive to noise so I am really happy they are around. "
"First off, the computer arrived VERY well packed. (in fact, the packaging itself was a work of art). I was very impressed with how carefully the system was packed. Then the computer. Oh my! When they call themselves "Endpcnoise", they are not joking. After working with a jet engine-sounding dual Opteron server for the last 3 years, what a welcome experience it was to work with a fast AND an absolutely silent PC. The agent was concerned that my requested non-standard Nvidia GTX 480 video card might be a noise generator. Ha! Nothing of the sort. This computer was amazingly silent. I recommend this company to anyone looking for a fast and QUIET machine. Their tech support and sales staff is first rate: knowledgeable, personable and professional. Endpcnoise comes with a HIGH RECOMMENDATION from me. Call them!"
"I have made several purchases from EndPCNoise over the years and would definitely recommend buying from them without hesitation. My latest order consisted of 4 Nexus 120mm case fans. Two of the fans arrived damaged/cracked due to UPS severely mishandling the package, but I didn't realize this until several weeks after it had arrived (I was too busy with work and never got around to opening the package). I sent an e-mail to Luke, and within a few days, received two brand new replacement fans! I have never written an online review for a company before, but felt the service I received from Luke and EndPCNoise deserved some form of recognition. Thanks again for the fantastic products and support! "
"My experience was very similar to aahzpy's at http://www.resellerratings.com/seller_info.pl?seller_id=6616&comment=269249#comment269249The machine I ordered from EndPCNoise.com became increasingly flaky and then the PSU died just before the warranty expired. While they replaced the PSU, they refused to address the stability and freezing problems, blaming my Linux installation. Exactly like the previous reviewer, the problems are clearly a hardware issue. I've moved the same drives to both my previous system and a new system from another vendor, and the stability and freezing problems are not present.Defective product, shoddy and rude service. I would never order a system from these guys again.Update:EndPCNoise's reply is full of excuses and lies. They didn't do a proper burn-in test until I sent the computer back a second time, after a month of not having my work desktop. Like their reply to this review, their emails to me were full of attitude that doing a proper repair is somehow a a huge favor.They don't "wish" they could fix the problem, they're just using that as an excuse to avoid fixing their defective product. If they had even made a modicum of an attempt to provide decent service, they wouldn't have to make excuses."
"I purchased a Quiet Elite Intel I7 computer from EndPCNoise. It was equipped with an ASUS P6X58D USB 3.0 supporting motherboard, an Intel I7-930 CPU, 6GB RAM, an 850 Watt Antec power supply and a Zotac GeForce GT240 1GB graphics card. I also got an Intel 160 GB SSD primary hard drive. The Antec P183 case is really built like a tank. The CPU is cooled with a Zalman 10X Flex cooler with a 110-120mm fan. The power supply also has a large fan and the case has a third fan. All I can say is this is a very fast and powerful computer and it makes absolutely NO noise. The hum from my monitors is louder. EndPCNoise built the machine on time, packed it well and I had zero problems. There is no question that you can buy high performance machines like this for less money, but I, for one, am tired of feeling like I'm in a wind tunnel listening to screaming fans and putting up with unwanted preloaded software. When I next feel the need to upgrade, I'll be back to them."
"I am a PC enthusiast and heavy business user - my PC needs to be 100% reliable, high performance (I do game, too) and QUIET! Since I began buying PCs many years ago, EndPCNoise is the only company that has met my expectations on ALL those fronts. Also, Abraham, Luke and the entire EndPCNoise team are very responsive and knowledgeable - they provide great personal attention. EndPCNoise has earned my loyalty and repeat business. Highly recommended whether you're a home, business or gaming user - or all of the above."
"I got my new PC from Endpcnoise a week ago. I'm blown away. I've never seen a computer built from such high quality components, or put together with such professionalism and care.When I ordered this computer, I spoke with Luke at Endpcnoise. He's knowledgeable, very helpful, and gave me great advice. Thanks to Luke, I ordered a computer that matched my needs better than what I would've picked out on my own.It's QUIET. Even quieter than my previous computer, which I bought from another company that was in the business of providing quiet computers.It's incredibly FAST. I'm a software developer. There's a particular piece of software that I used as a test for this machine's speed. Using Visual C++ on my old machine (Pentium 4, 1.9 GHz), it took 2 mins, 20 secs to build. On my new machine, it takes 8 secs!And on top of all that, it looks good! Especially on the inside. Everything's laid out elegantly. and the cables are routed with precision and skill.When you buy a computer from Endpcnoise, they include a restore DVD that puts the machine back to its original configuration as shipped in less than 15 minutes. This turned into a lifesaver for me when Microsoft tech support messed up my machine and I needed to wind it back to the original clean Windows install configuration.I'm writing this review for two reasons:* altruistic: Endpcnoise did a great job and they deserve credit for it.* selfish: I want Endpcnoise to stay in business so that I never have to buy a computer from anyone else."
"EndPCNoise.com is a great place. Not only have they provided quality products, but Luke has been extremely helpful when I've needed answers to questions I've had about quiet computing in general. Even when I wasn't purchasing anything, he has always been willing to offer his advice. And it's that kind of customer service and knowledge that makes them great to work with."
"Excellent 5-star customer service and product! All communication was personal, friendly, intelligent, patient, and thorough. I'd narrowed my choices for a new machine down to two very different options, then asked for guidance. One of my choices was gently but wisely advised against - cooling, expansion would be impossible with current technology and the combination of gear I was looking at. Dialog -- always two-way -- continued, back and forth as I refined and settled on the ultimate configuration. Order placed, shipped on schedule, very well packaged and totally protected, arrived pristine ready to go. I now have a blazingly fast system, solid and silent. I'd recommend EndPCNoise in a heartbeat, and will definitely return in the future. "
"I recently placed a small order with EndPCNoise for three fans. Due to an error (probably mine), the emailed invoice indicated the shipping costs would be in excess of $50 for overnight delivery, well exceeding the cost of the relatively inexpensive fans. Since I had not done business with EndPCNoise previously, and did not check resellersrarting.com like I usually do, I was very concerned I was going to eat the huge shipping expense. As it turned out, Luke handled this problem quickly and professionally. It became a non-event. I also appreciate Luke's patience with my level of concern. This company is definitely customer service oriented which is every bit as important as the quality of the product they sell."
"I have purchased two computers from this vendor over the past three years, and I have been extremely pleased with the build quality, amazingly quiet operation, and customer service I have received. I will probably never buy another desktop PC from anyone else."
"Knowledgeable, unbiased, helpful - what more can one ask for? These guys are for real - they know "Quiet" and that was what I needed!"
"I ordered 3 ea 120 mm Antec Tricool fans for my new Antec P-182 PC case. One fan had one blade broken during installation. Extremely competitive price. Usually thid fan sells for over 2.5X this price. I ordered 3 ea for convenience. After approx. 1 day order was shipped and arrived with US the next day. Excellent packing. Attn. WA State residents. Highly recommended."
