Kuthtec KTM2001 Honeycomb Copper Core Heatsink Rev

Abstract: So while the KTM2101 has 1mm spaced fins, all the cooling on this heatsink occurs within the 120 or so "multi wind tunnels."

Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

The noise produced Kuthtec KTM2001 is average, and not too bad all things considered. The tone of the sound is not too high, but the heatsink isn't silent either. You can listen to this heatsink in operation for yourself by clicking on the headphones and playing 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.
