The Skylake NoFan CS-60 Fanless PC is a completely silent computer with no fans to make noise or cause dust to collect. The Skylake CS-60 MicroATX is designed around the Nofan CS-60 Micro ATX fanless chasis, the Nofan CR-95C Fanless CPU Cooler, a fanless power supply, and an Intel SSD or a hard disk drive enclosed with a Smart Drive enclosure, to create a cost-effective, reliable, and totally noiseless PC. The NoFan CS-60 case has options for a disk drive (2.5" or 3.5") and has 3 x 5.25" drive bays for optical drives, a Smartdrive hard drive enclosures, or for hot swap bays.

NoFan CS-60 Fanless PC Core Components
LGA1151 (Skylake) Intel® 6th Generation Processor This NoFan CS-60 PC supports Intel® 6th generation processors, with improved video, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets and power to support 4K video at 60fps. Socket 1151 also supports up to 64GB dual-channel DDR4 memory in 4 DIMMs, and up to 20 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. Intel® 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Noiseless Hard Drives Every PC we sell comes with some of the most silent hard drive options available. Our fanless PCs are designed to be absolutely silent and come defaulted with an SSD drive. 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 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.
High Quality Memory This NoFan PC comes with your choice of high quality Kingston® memory and Corsair. We use Kingston® and Corsair memory because they are highly reliable and feature a lifetime warranty. The NoFan CS-60 PC has options for up to 64GB of RAM for those desiring ultimate performance

Will I Benefit From Skylake?
Skylake (the technology used in the Z170 Chipset and Socket 1151 CPUs) is Intel’s latest line of consumer oriented CPUs. As of this writing, there is only one Skylake CPU available, the i5-6600k. The i5-6600k is a quad-core CPU running at 3.9GHz. Overall, it is similar in performance to i5 Socket 1150 CPUs, but with added features. Eventually, Skylake CPUs will outperform current Socket 1150 CPUs, but right now that isn’t the case. You can still purchase an i7 Socket 1150 PC which outperforms the general performance levels of a Socket 1151 (Skylake CPU), for a lower cost than the new Socket 1151 CPU.
Then Why Would I Want to Purchase A Skylake PC?
Several new features are included with Skylake CPUs that aren’t included with Socket 1150 (New Haswell) CPUs. These include:
Improved Graphics Support | Out of the box graphics performance (without the need for an added video card) has nearly doubled with Socket 1151 (Skylake) over Socket 1150 (Haswell and Broadwell). Socket 1151 also includes full 4K support at 60 fps and includes expanded support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and Open CL 2.0.
64GB DDR4 Support | Socket 1150 CPUs maxed out at 32GB DDR3 RAM support. The Intel Z170 chipset and Socket 1151 allow for 64GB DDR4 RAM (in most systems). So, if you are doing memory intensive work, you could probably benefit from using a greater amount of high performance RAM in your PC.
Expanded M.2 and U.2 support | Socket 1151 (Skylake) is capable of greater M.2 and U.2 support (Asus Z170 motherboards are all compatible with the Asus Hyper Kit necessary for lightning fast NVMe drive support).
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!
And like always, EndPCNoise.com backs our computers with a one-year warranty, along with the best professional, courteous technical service and support on the market today. Not sure what configuration would best suit you? Contact our Sales Team to receive a custom quote!
