Quiet PC Semi-Fanless BTF mATX i17

The Semi-Fanless BTF mATX is a mid tower semi-fanless PC, offering a good amount of storage and add-on options. It also features a BTF motherboard so all cabling is hidden behind the motherboard tray.

Features

  1. Semi-Fanless system, configurable to your exact requirements
  2. Utilises an Intel CPU and B760 BTF motherboard
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
  5. Two year warranty with open-case policy
  6. Micro ATX design gives great capability in a smaller sized case

A constraint factor with completely fanless PCs is the inherent limitation in effectively cooling certain components passively. For instance, high-performance processors from both AMD and Intel often surpass the cooling capabilities of the Noctua NH-P1 when operated without an accompanying fan. Additionally, only graphics cards on the lower end of the performance spectrum can be adequately cooled without relying on direct airflow.

Best of both worlds!

This is where Semi-Fanless PCs shine, offering complete silence during light workloads. This silent operation is made possible by the motherboard’s BIOS settings and the use of 3-pin fans instead of 4-pin PWM fans in the system. In the BIOS, each fan is configured not to spin when the CPU temperature remains below 50°C. When the CPU temperature surpasses 50°C, the fans slowly start spinning, with their speed steadily increasing as the CPU temperature rises further. Naturally, as temperatures decrease, the fan’s speed decreases as well, eventually coming to a halt when the CPU temperature drops below the threshold.

PLEASE NOTE: The maximum noise level of the system all depends on the chosen processor and how it is being utilised. For example, during our tests we found that while running CPUs at 100% load the Core i5 14500 barely reached 65°C, resulting in a very quiet system. In contrast, the Core i9 14900K CPU exceeded 90°C, causing the installed fans to run at full speed making it was notably louder compared to the Core i5 14500.

Features ASUS BTF Motherboard and Chassis

The most unique aspect of the Semi-Fanless BTF mATX is that it features a BTF micro-ATX motherboard. The benefit of a BTF motherboard is that the motherboard connections are on the underneath of the motherboard which allow for a very clean build. The only cable that would be visible is the graphics card power cable, assuming one is required. This lack of cables at the business side of the PC means that there is no possibility of any cable blocking any heat dissipation, which for a semi-fanless PC is paramount!

Graphics Card and Power Supply

One notable feature of modern graphics cards is their ability to stop its fans from operating during light workloads. These semi-fanless graphics cards are programmed with a temperature threshold set at 50°C. Similar to the aforementioned fans, these cards gradually increase their fan speed as the temperature rises. However, unlike the motherboard’s BIOS control for 3-pin fans, the graphics card automatically manages its own fan speed based on the GPU temperature. The configurator offers two types of graphics cards: completely fanless and semi-fanless models.

In contrast, the operation of power supply unit (PSU) fans follows a slightly different pattern. Instead of activating at a specific temperature, PSU fans start spinning when the PSU reaches a particular load level. For instance, the FSP 750W Hydro PTM Pro has a threshold set at 40%, which means the fan kicks in when the power supply needs to deliver 300W of power or more. This load threshold may vary, so it’s advisable to refer to the specifications of each PSU to determine the threshold for your chosen power supply.

Motherboard Features

The Semi-Fanless BTF mATX is powered by an ASUS motherboard, which boasts cutting-edge components such as the Intel B760 chipset, enabling high-performance capabilities. With 2.5Gbps LAN and Realtek audio, this motherboard ensures seamless connectivity and immersive audio experiences. Accommodating a remarkable capacity of up to 128GB DDR5 RAM, it delivers excellent memory capabilities.

The B760 motherboard goes beyond expectations with its PCIe 5.0 support. Additionally, it houses three PCIe 4.0 M.2 ports, enhancing storage options and enabling fast access to data.

On the rear of the PC, you’ll find a diverse range of USB ports to cater to your connectivity needs. Among them, a Type-C USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 port stands out, while an impressive total of seven Type-A USB ports and a further two Type-C ports which operate at varying speeds, providing versatility for all your peripheral devices.

Storage considerations

When specifying your new PC’s storage options using our system configurator below, you will be offered a choice of drives which vary by price and capacity. There are two primary types of storage. A conventional hard disk drive (HDD) offers huge storage capacity for a low price, but it won’t be especially fast and it will generate a certain amount of running noise since it contains a constantly-rotating spindle. A solid state (SSD) or a M2 drive on the other hand, offer tremendous speed and absolutely silent operation, but they cost more than an HDD for any given capacity.

So if you need a lot of storage space (for videos or large quantities of digital photos for example), then we would recommend an HDD. On the other hand, if you prefer silence and speed (especially boot-up speed), then an SSD or M2 drive would be a better choice. Of course you can have more than one drive, so you could have the best of both worlds by choosing one of each! We recommend that customers chose an SSD or M2 drive as a boot drive that contains the operating system and important programs and a conventional HDD to store other data, but remember that if you intend to have a totally silent PC you might want to forgo the HDDs all together as they will make some noise due to their moving parts.

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.
