Our Quiet Workstation Computer is our Intel 6th Generation (Socket 1151) Xeon E3 Powerhouse PC designed for the executive who needs a cost-effective PC, where reliability, up-time, stability, and wide compatibility are the foremost priorities.
Perfectly designed as a budget workstation PC, our Workstation Computer will work perfectly in a highly-utilized management environment and will excel at executive tasks, including accounting, database management, spreadsheets, etc. This workstation is the work-horse of the office. We base our Workstation Computer around the reliable and robust Supermicro X11SAE-F.
Xeon E3 v6 Socket 1151 CPUs feature Kaby Lake server architecture, some CPUs with on-CPU HD video, up to 64GB DDR4 ECC memory, and expanded SATA3, M.2, and USB capabilities.
This Workstation Computer features ample expansion slots, USB 3.1, and VGA video capabilties right from the board (DP, HDMI, and DVI-D from the board when paired with a E3 v6 CPU featuring Intel® HD Graphics P630).
This executive Workstation Computer is built around the Antec P100 Quiet Tower Case. As always we replace Antec's noisier fans with ultra quiet Nexus® case fans and we use exclusively fanless video cards to keep the PC absolutely silent.

Xeon E3-1200 V6 "Kaby Lake"
We are super excited about Intel’s new Kaby Lake based v6 E3 CPUs. Beginning with Xeon E3 v5, Intel's new Xeon E3 CPUs revolutionize the moderately-priced workstation and stability PC market. When comparing Socket 1151 Xeon E3 v5/v6 to the previous Socket 1150 Xeon E3 v4 CPUs, you can expect:
- Some CPUs with built in high-end graphics offerings
- Significantly higher performance levels from previous E3 versions of the same CPU (this will vary from CPU to CPU - it is likely that in CPUs with high-end graphics built in that performance levels won’t quite be that impressive)
- Up to 64GB DDR4 ECC RAM (up from 32GB DDR3 ECC RAM in E3 v3)
- Up to 20 PCIe 3.0 lanes (up from 8x PCIe lanes PCIe 3.0 in Socket 1150 E3 v3) > this means greater throughput
- Greater USB and SATA3 offerings
- Intel® Socket 1151 (Kaby Lake) Xeon E3 v6 Processors
- Max. 64 GB, DDR4 ECC
- Intel® C236 Chipset
- 1x VGA | HDMI, DVI-D, DisplayPort available with Intel® HD Graphics P630 CPU
- 8x SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports
- 1x M.2
- 2x USB 3.1 (Up To 10 Gbps transfer rate) Type A
- 6x USB 3.0 (2x at Rear Panel), 6x USB 2.0 (2x at Rear Panel)
- 2x PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16 or x8,x8), 2x PCIe 3.0 x1
- 7.1 + 2 Channel ALC 888S HD Audio
- ATX Form Factor
Workstation Computer Components
LGA1151 Intel® Xeon E3 v5 Processor This workstation computer supports Intel® 6th generation Xeon E3 processors, with improved video, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output. 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 Xeon E3 processors are among the most stable, 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 computer we sell comes defaulted with some of the most silent hard drive options available. 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.
Cutting Edge Reliable Motherboards We feature the most reliable and highest performing motherboards available. This SuperMicro server class motherboard provides 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 Quiet Workstation Computer has options for up to 64GB of stable and precise ECC RAM for those desiring ultimate performance.

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, SilentPC.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.
