As a low noise heatsink, the initial results are seen in a different light than with other typical heatsinks. In other words, the higher temperatures are expected as a necessity of the lower fan noise. The Arctic cooling Copper Silent 2 seems to be handling the job a little better than the Verax P14Cu - but only just by a few degrees.

As a low noise heatsink we are primarily comparing the Arctic Cooling Copper Silent 2 against the Verax and Zalman heatsinks.

In this regard the Arctic cooling isn't quite able to match the most recent Verax heatsink to incorporate a CGDS copper base plate - the Verax P14Cu. Still, the Arctic Cooling heatsink does offer pretty decent low noise cooling for a primarily aluminum heatsink.

Noise levels are very good, but just a little louder than the Verax heatsinks. Given the economics of the two types of heatsinks, the Arctic Cooling is considerably more affordable. Compared to the all copper Zalman CNPS 6000-Cu, the Arctic cooling heatsink isn't quite able to keep up with the temperatures witnessed by that 47dB heatsink, though it is quieter by a significant amount.

Ultimately, while the thermal test numbers may seem a stark contrast from most of the heatsinks on this reference list, as a low-noise heatsink the Arctic Cooling Copper Silent 2 is able to offer moderately decent temperatures at very low noise levels. Economically, it offers itself at a more competitive price point than the extremely quiet Verax heatsinks, but again falls short of the versatility of the Zalman CNPS-6000Cu.
