we should set up some system integrators in the EU to offer SPCR-certified quiet PCs. The distance makes it difficult but not impossible. Perhaps our EU regulars can offer likely candidates?
Has there been any follow-up on this idea? I would be absolutely thrilled! I've built my own system, thanks to this site, an then upgraded it too, but have always found myself with a relatively cluncy and not-so-stable result... I'm so fed up with spending so much time on my PC, I've been thinking about getting a laptop, jooking it up to a real monitor and a real keyboard, and get over with it. Of course, that would mean throwing away a lot of invested money (what would I do with my current system?) and giving up on future upgrades.
Only yesterday, I was thinking, if only SPCR had a certified partner in Europe, where I could either get a new system or take my current system for a checkup!
honestly, mike: much, much needed partnership.
unfortunately, since I'm not a tech-person, I really wouldn't know hwere to start recommending... except that I'd suggest avoiding the UK and Scandinavia, where everything is usually more expensive. Perhaps Germany or Spain would be better choices
