GamerStorm Assassin CPU Cooler Review - Noise Level Results

GamerStorm Assassin CPU Cooler Review

This is the first cooler from the GamerStorm line of CPU coolers that we have had to test. It's time to see if the Assassin is a real killer or not.

Noise Level Results

With 7.5V being sent from the Adjust 108, you really have to get your ear close to this cooler to hear any wind noise or any sort of a hum from the moving parts.

 

Once we stepped back to the one foot range where we always take a reading, we found these fans to only be producing 27 dB of noise, and placing third for silence when the fans are left in their idle state.

Just like we found in the thermal results, the Assassin is not ready to give up any ground. While the levels may have increased to 45 dB, when we applied 12V to the fans, it still stays in third place overall as one of the most silent offerings currently on the market.

 

So, not only is this cooler capable of taming a 4770K with relative ease, it also does this without disturbing the user too much audibly.
