The YS Tech fan spins at about 6800 RPM making a not so quiet alternative. The fan provides good cooling, and with the case doors close, and the computer under a table would be tolerable. I wouldn't recommend fans of this noise level for a 24/7 system in a room however. L isten to this heatsink by clicking on the headphones to the right of the waveform images. The Sample is about 10 seconds in length and is stored in MP3 format.

The initial results seem to indicate that the Dominator 2 is much better than its previous iteration, but given the differences in ambient temperatures this is a bit exaggerated.

Compared to the other reference coolers the Dominator 2 seems to be positioning itself as a performance cooler, but we'll have to look at the rise above ambient temperature results before confirming that completely.
