Abstract: When installed properly, the thermistor should be able to sense the temperature at the base of the heatsink and adjust fan RPM to compensate.

Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

The acoustic waveform you see here is with the heatsink running at its stock (lowest) speed - it will spin up can create more noise as more heat is generated by the heatsink - but that is not something we could record at the moment. 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. Measurements are made in dB, in the A scale.
