The Kaby Lake Quiet Tower PC is our 7th Generation Intel (LGA1151) quiet Powerhouse Tower PC including the absolute latest technology available, while still pushing the boundaries of silence.
Kaby Lake Architecture (Z270 Chipset/Socket 1151 CPUs) features DDR4 memory, as well as an updated capacity for memory of 64GB. DDR4 memory, integrated and enhanced video capabilities, dual M.2 capabilities, NVMe compatibility, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps), and expanded PCIe bus lanes.
Our Quiet Tower PC is built with the feature rich, high-end (but consumer oriented) Asus Prime Z270-A Motherboard. The Z270-A is loaded with just about every feature you could need, designed especially for all-around compatibility, and extreme durability. The focus for the Kaby Lake Tower PC is based on achieving a fully-featured socket 1151 processor based system featuring the Z270 chipset, at the best price point possible without sacrificing features, quality, or performance.

LGA1151 Intel® 6th/7th Generation Processor Ready This PC supports Intel® 6th/7th 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 24 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. Intel® 6th/7th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based 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 desiring absolute silence in a larger capacity WD Red quiet hard disk drive, our desktop computers include an option for the Smart Drive Classic hard drive enclosure, which further silences your hard drive without raising its temperature. 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 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 manufacturer 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 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 Kaby Lake Tower PC has options for up to 64GB of RAM for those desiring ultimate performance.

What are these Intel 2XX-Series Prime Motherboards and Kaby Lake CPUs?
200-Series Motherboards feature the H270, Z270, and B250 chipsets, as well as Intel's 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) Socket 1151 CPUs. H270, Z270, and B250 are also backwards compatible with 6th Generation (Skylake) Socket 1151 CPUs. Z170 motherboards also support the Kaby Lake 7th generation CPUs (forwards compatiblity). Z270 also features 24 lanes of PCIe 3.0 bus (up from 20 lanes with Z170) and greater official memory speed support (Max. DDR4-2400) when paired with a Kaby Lake CPU.
The Z270/Kaby Lake Upgrade Includes:
- H270/Z270 feature 20/24 lanes of PCIe 3.0 for greater M.2 support
- Improved Energy Efficiency
- Support for up to DDR4-2400 (Z170 officially included support for up to DDR4-2133)
- Continued Graphics Improvement
What Is A Socket 1151 PC?
Skylake was the technology used in 170-Series Motherboards. Socket 1151 CPUs (Intel’s consumer oriented CPUs) include Skylake, Kaby Lake, and Coffee Lake CPUs (but Coffee Lake CPUs require new motherboards). Several new features were included with the Kabylake and Skylake CPUs that weren'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. Socket 1151 allows for 64GB DDR4 RAM. 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).
Both Skylake and Kaby Lakes CPUs include these improvements. Kaby Lake offers improved speeds, and as well as additional bus lanes integrated into the CPU. Kaby Lake motherboards (2XX-series motherboards like the one featured in this system) also feature improved support for high-speed RAM.
Up and Coming Coffee Lake
Just released (and still being rolled out), Coffee Lake (Z370 and 8XXX series CPUs) feature all the same improvements mentioned above, but accept faster CPUs with up to 6-CORES. New Haswell, Skylake, and Kaby Lake all maxed out with 4-Core CPUs. However, Coffee Lake isn't not backwards compatible with Kaby Lake or Skylake, even though it incorporates the same features on its motherboards. If you are looking to the newest high-end, but consumer-oriented CPUs and don't mind paying a little more, we recommend looking at a Coffee Lake PC. On the other hand, Coffee Lake is still rolling out and as of the time of this writing, and currently does not include budget-oriented motherboard lines or value CPUs (Celeron and Pentium).
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 PC for maximum compatibility and performance; all while being absolutely silent. You will be amazed at how quiet our PCs are!
And like always, EndPCNoise.com backs these systems 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.
