I'm not really sure where NZXT got their sound testing done, but I have to say this cooler is much more audible than the HAVIK140, or a lot of other fans, as this chart shows.

With 12V running through the fans I found something odd here. Via software and in the BIOS I was reading a 12V speed of 1731 RPM, over 200 RPM more than what the fans are specified to do. This might be the cause of the vibration I will address in the conclusion. Either way, it allowed my sample to deliver some good results.
