Intel Alder Lake 14th Gen Processor

The 14th Gen Intel processors bring improvements over previous generations, offering enhanced performance through the use of improved Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores). These cores are optimised to deliver impressive results in both single and lightly-threaded tasks, as well as highly-threaded workloads. This optimisation allows gamers, creators, and professionals to unlock the full potential of their systems and elevate their experiences.

To provide you with a glimpse of the improvements offered by the 14th Gen Intel processors compared to the 13th Gen, the table below showcases some PassMark CPU Benchmarks. Higher numbers in the benchmarks indicate better overall performance, helping you understand the notable performance gains delivered by the 14th Gen processors.

14th Gen Processor Core i5 14500 Core i7 14700 Core i9 14900
PassMark score 32,483 47,650 52,447
13th Gen Processor Core i5 13400 Core i7 13700 Core i9 13900
PassMark score 24,986 37,893 48,024

The figures above are as of March 2024. They do change over time.

These benchmarks demonstrate the improved performance capabilities of the 14th Gen processors, highlighting their ability to handle a wide range of tasks with increased efficiency and power. Whether you are a gamer, content creator, or professional user, the 14th Gen Intel processors aim to deliver a significant boost in performance and productivity.

For the Home User

Home users or enthusiasts can simply build on the base configuration, adding higher capacity SSD drives and a graphics card if required. Not everyone will need a graphics card as the processor’s own on-board graphics will be fine for most users and it supports up to three monitors running from the motherboard one of which (via HDMI) will work at a resolution of 4096 x 2160. If more graphics power is required, there are fanless cards on offer which would be perfect for most home users.

For the Serious or Professional User

With the addition of a discrete graphics card, the maximum supported number of monitors and/or resolutions will be increased. Photo/video editing programs usually take up a lot, if not all of the space on your Windows desktop so it is usually a good idea to use a large display like the ASUS TUF VG27AQA1A 27in HDR 170Hz Monitor or even the ASUS TUF VG289Q 28in IPS HDR10 Monitor to expand your desktop. The more space you have available on your Windows desktop the easier it will be to work with your editing software. We also offer a more budget friendly rage of Dahua Monitors to expand your desktop. The more space you have available on your Windows desktop the easier it will be to work with your editing software.

Motherboard Features and Options

This particular computer utilises the ASUS motherboard, so expect connectivity like PCIe 4 speeds for all connected M.2 drives and USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 for USB speeds up to 20Gbps. The motherboards also features RAID, multiple M.2 connectors, premium audio, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and support for up to 128GB RAM. Below are images of each motherboard available in this system with a table that shows some of the specification each motherboard offers.

Ethernet Controller (LAN) Realtek 2.5Gb Ethernet Intel I225-V 2.5Gb Ethernet
Built-in Wi-Fi and BT None Wi-Fi 6E and BT v5.2

Storage Options

The system can accommodate three different storage types. The first and fastest option are the M.2 drives. These drives offer speeds around 13 times that of the SSDs we offer. We recommend selecting one of these drives as the boot drive. Other options include SSD drives up to a capacity of 8TB which will be large enough for most users. But if the speed of an SSD is not required please consider a conventional HDD to backup or store your work.

Some applications work better if they have a ‘scratch disk’ which they can use as a temporary workspace. Of course adding any component with moving parts like a hard drive will make some noise but to keep noise levels low we recommend using 2.5in drives where possible as these are usually quieter in operation than 3.5in drives.

A better alternative would be to use 2.5in SSD’s or M.2 drives as they are not only faster than conventional hard disk drives they are totally silent and SSD prices have fallen hugely in the past few years making them much more affordable.

Internal Card Reader

If a card reader is required then we offer the Akasa AK-ICR-14 Internal USB 3.0.

Please note: If the ASUS TUF Gaming Z790-PLUS motherboard is chosen, that doesn’t have an additional USB 3 header required for either card reader so you would also need this USB expansion card which provides the additional USB 3 header.

Please note: The Define 7 Mid Tower only supports one 5.25” bay so you can have either an optical drive or a card reader fitted but not both.

If you require both a card reader and a DVD drive then please check the specifications for your chosen case as not all cases have the required number of drive bays (2 x 5.25”) needed for both.

RAID Storage

Users with more advanced storage needs may be interested in having two drives in a RAID array in order to increase data read/write speeds or to provide a higher level of resilience against drive failure. The two types of RAID offered on this system are RAID 0 (Striped) and RAID 1 (Mirrored) and they store information in completely different ways.

RAID 0 arrays stripe data and write information across two separate hard drives and are often used to increase the speed at which data is accessed and retrieved. For instance, Photoshop has the ability to batch process images and a RAID 0 configuration would help with faster image retrieval and storage after Photoshop has processed them. The downside is that if either drive fails then you lose everything, so it is important to make regular precautionary backups.

RAID 1 arrays mirror data and write identical information across both drives simultaneously without a speed penalty. So if one drive fails, no data is lost and the PC stays running. However, if both drives (or more likely the motherboard) fails then you lose everything, so it is still important to backup regularly.

Recommended Accessories

The Wacom One small graphics tablet is a great way to massively boost creative flair and productivity when working with graphics and photographs.

A responsive, ergonomic, pressure-sensitive pen gives you a natural way to sketch, draw, paint and edit photos. Once you’ve tried using one in Photoshop (or any photo editing software), you’ll never go back to a mouse again!

Clean Build™ Promise

These days, many pre-built PCs often rely on cash incentives from software companies to support their prices. These companies pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software, hoping that customers will eventually opt to upgrade to the full version. Unfortunately, this approach has a downside: it fills the new PC with unnecessary “junkware,” leading to an inflated operating system and performance issues.

At Quiet PC, we firmly believe that customers deserve the utmost performance from their brand new PCs. That’s why we proudly offer our Clean Build™ promise with every system we build. When you choose one of our PCs, we install only the essentials: the operating system (if requested), motherboard drivers, OS updates and Windows Security. Say goodbye to annoying pop-ups and nag screens. With our clean build promise you can immediately start using your new PC without the hassle of uninstalling numerous unwanted programs. Experience lightning-fast boot times and enjoy optimal performance for months and years to come.

Free hardware support and fully inclusive warranty

We offer free hardware technical support for as long as you own the machine. This support covers any hardware query or problem, including advice on maintenance and upgrades. We regret we can’t offer software support or training so we would recommend contacting the software vendor in this instance.

Our hardware warranty runs for at least two years and is “collect and return” meaning that you don’t need to worry about getting the machine back to us - we will instruct our courier to collect it from you on a day of your choosing, then after we have checked and repaired it we will send it back to you by express courier at our expense. In addition, unlike many other PC suppliers, we have an “open-case” policy which means you are free to open the machine and perform your own minor modifications or upgrades without worrying that your warranty might be affected.
