Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

For this heatsink, sound level recordings are pretty much redundant. A 60mm fan doesn't generate that much noise, and in the server environment noise is a moot point. Still, if you would like to have a listen, we've made a recording of the 848X-6B under power so you can hear for yourself. Click on the little headphones icon below and download the 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.

Sound level measurements are quite good - the Arkua 848x with its small 60mm fan only creates about 49.3 dB of noise in a real world environment.
