Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

Any heatsink this size is going to be a little bit louder than your average cooler, and so the Delta is a little noisy. In a typical case, this heatsink would be noticeable from the outside. You can listen to this heatsink in operation for yourself by clicking on the little headphones and downloading the 10 second 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.

Dynatron DC1206BMP 65.1 dB
Thermalright SLK800 66.2 dB
Thermalright AX-7 66.4 dB louder

After measuring the sound output at approximately 54 dB we were left wishing the heatsink was a little quieter. It is no where near as loud as the Thermalright heatsinks, but these days sub 50 dB is much more desirable.
