The Fractal Design R4 case and liquid cooling keeps it quiet even with seven fans installed.

    1. Hi Ray, apologies for the late reply. Sadly had a major medical event in the family and am just getting back to work.
      We charge $80 per hour for service work. Custom builds costs are determined by the components used in the build. If you are unsure of what components you need, let us know what you want the computer to do and we can send you options which we believe will suit your needs. These can be adjusted for any specific components you wish to include (or exclude).

      Kind regards,
