Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

The GSW-6015 is a fairly moderate noise producing heatsink, and since the waveform here is just a little out of scale (recording and mic levels sometimes get mixed up which makes the picture worse looking than the actual sound) you should ignore it and just listen the heatsink in action. To listen to this heatsink for yourself in operation, be sure to click on the little headphones icon below and download the Acoustic Sample 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.
