The Quiet Executive Workstation is an ideal budget-minded system for a demanding business environment. Overall, it is the best business pc you can buy for the money, for business environments where uptime, security, and performance are absolutely critical.
Based on the budget oriented Socket 1150 E3 series workstation CPUs, the Quiet Executive Workstation is designed entirely around reliability and performance at an affordable price. Featuring a Premium Asus® Workstation motherboard, Xeon Processor, ECC Memmory, and TPM support, for the utmost reliability in the business environment.
We default our Executive Workstation with a workstation class Asus motherboard that supports ECC Memory for ultimate reliability. The Z97-WS motherboard is also compatible with the ASUS ThunderboltEX II Expansion Card, to add Thunderbolt 2 functionality for extreme throughput connectivity at 20Gb/s (16.8 Gb/s real world).
The Z97-WS also has two SATA Express connectors. Along with Thunderbolt II support, our Z97 Workstation Motherboard has the capability to support the latest M.2 and SATA Express (SATAe) connectors, that have transfer speeds of up 16 Gb/s, versus the current SATA III speeds of up to 6Gb/s. (In the real world these drives, however, still max out at about 9.6 Gb/s or 1200 MB/s, as of the time of this writing.)

Executive Workstation Core Components
Socket LGA1150 for Intel® 4th Generation Xeon Processors This workstation motherboard supports the latest Intel® 4th generation Xeon E3-1200 series processors in the LGA1150 package, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory and 20 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel® 4th generation Xeon E3-1200 series processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Fanless Video Cards We choose the quietest video cards available in the market. Every video card choice is silently cooled either with the manufacturer's fanless video heatsink or with a custom silent video card cooler. As well as being absolutely silent every video card offers support for at least two monitors simultaneously, many with options for more.
Quiet Hard Drives Every PC we sell comes defaulted with some of the most silent hard drive options available. Additionally, for those of you requiring more silence, our PCs include an option for the Smart Drive Classic hard drive enclosure, which further silences your hard drive without raising its temperature. Or if you are looking for total silence choose an SSD! Solid-state drives (SSD) have no moving parts, so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are more reliable than standard mechanical hard drives.
Quality Asus Workstation Motherboard We feature the latest ASUS® motherboards in our quiet systems. ASUS® is the world's best selling and most award winning motherboard manufacturer. They provide supreme reliability, top notch cutting edge features and excellent manufacture support. Our motherboards contain fanless heatsinks and heatpipes to effectively cool the chipset heatsink and voltage regulators, without the use of noisy fans. This workstation motherboard also has some very special features like the Intel® Z97 chipset, Dual Intel Server-class Gigabit LAN, DDR3 memory, and it is optimized for professional openGL performance.
High Quality Memory The Executive Workstation comes with high quality Kingston® ECC memory. We use Kingston® memory because it is highly reliable and features a lifetime warranty. This workstation has options for up to 32GB of ECC RAM for those desiring ultimate performance and reliability!

We don't just choose quieter parts, we choose the quietest, best performing parts available and assemble them cleanly to optimize airflow and minimize the slightest vibration. We don't just replace one or two parts in our system with relatively quiet components, we replace each component with the quietest part available.
In addition to silent parts our systems are built with pride for many years of use. From start to finish, we anticipate, research, and test each system for maximum compatibility and performance; all while being absolutely silent. You will be amazed at how quiet our systems are!
