Verax GmbH P14 Silent Heatsink Review
Verax GmbH P14 Silent Heatsink Review
  75%   
Abstract: The kicker may be that it rotates counter-clockwise (backwards) - totally opposite to that of traditional axial fans.

Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

The waveform image we captured tells most of the story, making the need to actually listen to the MP3 pretty much mute. The Verax fans are indeed very very quiet. Still, if you would like to hear just how quiet, then click on the headphones and listen to 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.

Sibak AC06725TH 62.4 dB
Dynatron DY1206BH-625 63.3 dB
Dynatron DC1206BMP 65.1 dB louder

At a mere 32.1 dB these fans were difficult to measure accurately. Not only is the bottom level on the sound meter officially calibrated for 35dB and up, but even just moving the sound meter around would cause a creek or noise which was louder than the actual fan under power!
