The Sapphire Edge VS8 Mini PC is extremely quiet, basically silent most of the time, until pushed hard with synthetic tests. When the fans are at full speed the system is audible, but still quiet. These are excellent results, especially if you want to use the system in a bedroom environment and leave it powered on 24/7.
