Noise Level Results

The noise levels aren't chart topping like the thermal results, but still drops into 12th place overall. Nothing to complain about with a 31 dB reading with 7.5V running through the EK-FAN Silent 120s and this result is with three fans running in front of the meter.

The surprise in noise levels came when I switched over to 12V being supplied to them. At first I thought my fan controller was faulty even after checking the voltage to be sure, so I even tried with a three fan adapter off of one Molex power source. Even then I got the same results and these fans climbed in the charts toward the top delivering only 43 dB of noise at the full 1600 RPM.
