Ryzen 7000 Series

At the heart of the PC is a AMD AM5 7000 series processor powered by the new ‘Zen 4’ architecture, ushering in the next era of high performance for gamers, enthusiasts, and content creators thanks to the featuring up to 16 cores and 32 threads. Compared to the previous generation, AMD Ryzen 7950X processor enables single-core performance improvement of up to +29%, up to 45% more compute for content creators, up to 15% faster gaming performance in select titles, and up to 27% better performance-per-watt.

To give you an idea of much of an improvement the 7000 series is over the 5000 series processors, take a look at the table below that shows some PassMark CPU Benchmarks, the higher the number the better the performance the processors offers.

7000 Series Ryzen 5 7600X Ryzen 7 7800X Ryzen 9 7900X Ryzen 9 7950X

The figures above are as of October 2022. They do change over time.

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 many users and both boards support 4K displays via HDMI and DisplayPort. If more graphics power is required or if you need more than two monitors, 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 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 these BenQ EL2870U 28in monitor or even the 28in ASUS TUF VG289Q 28in Monitor, IPS, 5ms, 3840x2160, 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.

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 3-4 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 4TB 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.

Many applications work better if they have a ‘scratch disk’ which they can use as a temporary workspace, (Photoshop being a good example of this). 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 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 or the Akasa AK-ICR-33 Internal USB 3.1 Type-C. The AKASA-AK-ICR-33 card reader would be a good way to add a fast USB C port to the front of the case two cases we offer with this system as neither has a USB C port on the case itself but both motherboards have a suitable internal header.

Please note: Neither motherboard has 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.

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.

Clean Build™ Promise

The price of many pre-built PCs these days is often supported by cash kickbacks from software companies who pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software and then hope that the customer pays to upgrade to the full version. The downside to this approach is that the new PC comes pre-loaded with a lot of “junkware” which bloats the operating system and can cause severe performance degradation.

Here at Quiet PC we believe that customers have every right to expect the best possible performance from a brand new PC, so every system we build comes with our Clean Build™ promise. We install the operating system (if you order one), motherboard drivers, OS updates and Windows Security - that’s it. You won’t be pestered by pop-ups and nag screens and you can get on with using your new PC immediately without having to uninstall lots of junkware first. Your new machine will boot in super-quick time and will stay running quickly for many 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.
