Noise Level Results

37 dB audio results aren't all that bad; in fact this is slightly better than the original Dark Knight results and finishes in the top third of the list.

It also seems to have done a single dB better than the Achilles, but does much better than most other Xigmatek submissions up to this point. 52 dB is definitely audible, but not so much that it gets annoying and makes you wish for a more silent fan to replace it with.
