Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

Loud heatsinks are either a really good thing, a really bad thing, or a really tolerated thing. In the case of the HHC-001 from Coolermaster I'd say the latter is the most correct. AMD processors produce enough heat that overclockers will want to have a peek at heatsinks like this. In this case the sound is loud but not incredibly high-pitched.

To listen to this heatsink for yourself, simply click on the little pair of headphones and download the MP3 recording.

Sound Level Measurements:

Listening to the actual noise a heatsink makes allows you to hear what pure numbers alone cannot get across. To further emphasize FrostyTech's reliance on cold hard facts when evaluating a heatsink, we also take Decibel readings with a sound level meter. These results may be higher than the manufacturer's listed specs, but then again these are real world measurements.

FrostyTech Sound Level Results
- Manufacturer Model Noise Level Scale
Coolermaster HHC-L61 42.2 dB quiet
Coolermaster HSC-V62 43.7 dB
JMC Prducts 400023 46.6 dB
Zalman All Flower HSF 47.4/28.9 dB
Taisol CGK760092 48.4 dB
GlacialTech Igloo 2310 49.4 dB
Arkua 628 50.7 dB
Noisecontrol Silverado 50.8 dB
NengTyi XPC5000 52.4 dB
Thermal Integration TI-V77L 53.0 dB
Tocools Crown 54.5 dB
Cybercooler P5750 55.4 dB
Sibak AT01515B 55.8 dB
Sibak AE01625B 58.2 dB
Sibak AC02625B 59.7 dB
Coolermaster HHC-001 59.9 dB
Dynatron DY1206BH-625 63.3 dB
Dynatron DC1206BMP 65.1 dB louder

compared to the low noise HHC-L61 the HHC-001 is a beast. Coming in at practically 60 dB this heatsink is not one you want for 24/7 bedroom computers. Overclockers have little choice in the matter, but the rest of us sound-sensitive people could do to find something more quiet.
