The recalled and soon to be released Sandy Bridge based Puget Systems Serenity PC

Puget Systems specializes in making custom PCs that are incredibly quiet without sacrificing any performance to do so. As you saw in Ryan's review of their Serenity SPCR Edition Ultra Quiet Gaming PC, they do a very good job at it. Since then they have been hard at work extending their line up and keeping up with the newest parts. One of their more recent Serenity SPCR Edition models went up for review at AnandTech, though it is a model you are not going to be able to own anytime soon ... it is a P67 based system and therefore under recall at the moment. It is still rather impressive and once the new B3 revision Cougar Point boards are available again it is a system worth considering.
"This is our second review unit from the Washington-based Puget Systems (our first was several years
ago when they were first starting out), and it's a doozy. While the P67/H67 chipset recall has proven
to be a boot to the collective breadbasket of the industry, we were fortunate enough to get the
Serenity SPCR Edition in before the recall hit, and Puget was kind enough to let us review it anyhow.
That seems reasonable, since the SATA bug in the chipset isn't liable to affect any of our test
results outside of PCMark, leaving us with an opportunity to show you a remarkable system that you'll
be able to get your hands on in the near future."
