Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

Unlike the ever-noisy Socket A heatsinks, pentium 4 coolers such as the Regal must compete with a very quiet stock Intel heatsink. In most cases the heatsinks are much louder than the stock Intel platform, and this is no different. To listen to this heatsink for yourself just click on the 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
Verax P16 quiet
Zalman CNPS6500B-AlCu 47.4/28.9 dB
Intel Socket 478 42.5 dB
Cho-Liang CL-CB0094-1A 49.8 dB
Cho-Liang CL-CB00881 50.2 dB
Taisol CEP426151A 50.7 dB
ChoLiang CB0307Z17 52.9 dB
Dynatron DC1207BMW 53.0 dB
Globalwin VA476 54.2 dB
Dynatron DC1206BMV 55.1 dB
Vantec VP4C7040 55.6 dB
ChoLiang CB0309Z17 55.7 dB
AVC 117140 56.1 dB
Tocools Regal 56.5 dB
NengTyi NW6700 58.0 dB
Coolermaster IHC-H71 64.4 dB
Thermalright AX-478 66.5 dB louder

56.5 dB is on the loud side even for a Socket A heatsink, but compared to the 'lower noise' Pentium 4 heatsinks, the Regal comes in firmly on the loud scale of the spectrum. Realistically, this heatsink will probably standout from the rest of the components just a little (acoustically that is).
