Noise Level Results
In my testing, the fan on the cooler was spinning at 1324RPM when we ran the stock run of the testing. The fan will idle at only 935RPM. When the test was running, I grabbed the meter and got a reading of 39dB. It's not the greatest rating on the chart, but this is almost as loud at the cooler gets.
See what I mean? When we applied 12V to the fan, it was spinning at 1634RPM at this point, and only delivered 50 dB for the meter to measure. This is well above average in this test, definitely lower than a stock cooling solution, and is very tolerable on the ears.
