Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

With the fan mounted flatly against the side of the heatsink there is cause for some turbulence right from the start - and hence noise is somewhat more noticeable than not. A plenum could help to alleviate this issue, but for the moment we'll have to make due. To listen to this heatsink for yourself, be sure to click on the little headphones icon below and download the MP3 file.

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. Measurements are made on the dB (A) scale.

CPUMate DIA10500 57.5 dB
NengTyi NW6700 58.0 dB
Coolermaster IHC-H71 64.4 dB louder

With our Omega sound meter in hand we measured the noise level of this heatsink at 57.5dB - not too bad for a Pentium 4 heatsink, but definitely on the louder side of the scale. Up next, the thermal results are in.
