Noise Level Results




The sound level at idle, or really the lack of it, is music to my ears. I know I am spoiled when it comes to things like this, but I do much prefer a cooler capable of its basic function of removing heat without being a distraction to my ears. I mentioned that the fans looked similar to the ones found on the Havik 140, and imagine that, the results are spot on as well.




Loaded up, and with what AIDA64 showed as 1316 RPMs, the fan is still near silent. With the open air configuration of the test system, I could hear both the PSU and the cards over the Prime SD1484. I will say this; Xigmatek has finally broken the noise barrier that earlier had me looking to other manufacturers. It looks like Xigmatek has stepped up the game and did a great job with the noise levels!
