Happy Birthday! It's been pretty awesome to watch SPCR become one of the more respected review sites. I can only say I wish I'd found out about it sooner.

Well done SPCR.

My own experience of the SilentQuest (PC game anyone ?) is that usage is now split among more than 1 PC and more than 1 location.

There's the every day PC - only one moving part - a slow fan - with a SSD system drive and everything else in a NAS 2 floors away.

And there's the heavy lifter PC - still quiet but with 4 fans, another SSD and a 1TB Samsung in an appropriate quiet box.

Every day PC is MiniITX/small case ; Heavy lifter is ATX/tower case.

Common to SPCR alumni ?

Thank you Mike, and the rest of the team and forum regulars.

I've only know of your site for about 3 of the 8 years, still it changed my perception of what a computer is or should be.

Anechoic chamber is a leap in review site history. Scientific grade audio testing is unique to this site, as far as I know. Adding your experienced subjective opinion seals the deal.

Please keep doin what you do

Congrats to Mike and SPCR for eight years of being THE source of thoughtful, exhaustive reviews of computer gear with an ear towards the quiet side of life - I wouldn't have successfully built several quiet rigs without your guidance!

Most people don't know that SPCR was started as an April's Fools joke.

Congrats Mike, hope you have a quiet one. :D

It speaks a thousand words to say this is the only PC forum I've ever gotten into. PC noise drove me mad ever since I was a kid and wrapped the family's Pentium 100 in a huge blanket. :lol: I'm very happy with what I've achieved for myself and others around me, and have the good people of this site to thank.

I do. :roll:

The nick I have now is not the one I started here with. I am sincerely older.
the rage has calmed down alot over the years..this place helped no doubts...


Today, I was approached by a crazy woman (true story), while backing into a parking spot.Rambling on, she made no sense... she was lying of course about her dying mother in boston...but the dollar she asked for was given. Great act for a crazy person.
I will be donating here for different crazy reasons. :wink:

As a long time lurker, just wanted to sign up to add my thanks!

There are far too many sites focused on the big rigs with the big benchmarks. Yours serves what I reckon a more important role - making it bearable to actually sit near the big rig in daily life!
