Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

There is a low whine from the fans, but this is mostly the air moving through the fins and not motor noise. You can listen to this heatsink in operation for yourself by clicking on the headphones and playing the 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.

Sibak AC06725TH 62.4 dB
Dynatron DY1206BH-625 63.3 dB
Dynatron DC1206BMP 65.1 dB louder

Overall, if we consider that the measured sound level of 49.8 dB is pretty low all things considered we can say that the GlobalWin TAK68 is a fairly quiet heatsink when installed in a case. With other devices like power supplies, and videocard fans running loudly, it would be difficult for most of us to hear the TAK68 over the other components in a typical system.
