Sapphire Vapor-X Universal CPU Cooler Review - Noise Level Results

Sapphire Vapor-X Universal CPU Cooler Review

The long wait has finally ended. Sapphire finally delivers the Vapor-X CPU cooler for its world debut. We're a bit late to the game, but with good reason.

Noise Level Results

With the PWM controlling the fans and applying 7.5V for this test, the 120mm fans used here do pretty well with slightly better than average results.

Even with 12V applied to them and with then turning very near the maximum RPMs, AIDA64 showed the actual maximum of these to be 1834 RPM, near 400 RPM short of the specification for it.

 

With such limited information at hand, I don't know if this was a typo by Sapphire or a last minute decision to reduce the noise levels so it will be more comparable to its competition.
