Whisper-quiet operation. Carillon computer systems use several design conventions to ensure ultra-quiet and ultra-cool operation:
The sound insulation properties of the thick steel and aluminum case substantially reduce transmitted noise from internal components.
The rigidity of the chassis combined with the use of secure bolt fastenings make for a highly vibration-damped structure, effectively eliminates rattles and buzzes \'in sympathy\' with fans, drives and the music you\'re monitoring.
Every metal part of the Carillon chassis is isolated from its surroundings through the use of materials such as Sorbothane™, resulting in little or no transmitted vibration between the CPU and your rack or desktop. Sorbothane is often used to isolate scientific instruments and audiophile equipment from vibration.
Carillon\'s Molex Silent Systems™ foam lined sleeve/hard drive enclosure reduces hard drive noise by over 90%. The UltraMute Carillon PSU combines special low hum transformers with an all-new fan, featuring substantially smoother fan-motor bearings and a reduced turbulence fan blade design.
The processor fan incorporates a radical 360% radial fin heat sink. This patented design provides far greater surface area than conventional heat sinks for increased heat dissipation with a reduced airflow requirement, resulting in a fan system that\'s virtually silent since it doesn\'t need to work as hard to cool the chassis interior.
