Most IT workers or computer enthusiasts tend to accumulate computer
and electronics gear over time. Over the years it is easy to end up
with piles of old and outdated computer parts, components and
electronicswhether its an old Pentium machine that your work was
throwing out, RAM chips you no longer needed after your last upgrade,
or an old CRT monitor that your cousin wasnt sure what to do with.
Tossing the accumulated hardware out with the next trash pickup
doesnt even enter the equation, because theres that slight
possibility you might need it someday.
Quote: "Using components you already have lying around, you may very
well be able to build a nearly silent PC. With that said, unless you
have some newer components available, you may not be able to go truly
silent without spending some money. Low RPM fans, fanless power
supplies, and SSDs are key to the quest for quiet. While I ended up
spending around $330 for my project, only $250 of that was related to
noise. A quick search online for custom built Quiet PCs show prices
upwards of $4,000, so depending on your computing needs and what you
already have lying around, it very well could be worth the time and
effort it takes to put together your own Quiet PC."
