Noise Level Results
As we scan the audio charts for all of our coolers tested on this new rig, we now find three be quiet! coolers, including the Dark Rock 3, at the top of our charts.
When the fan is supplied with 7.5V, and as it spins at 1480 RPM, you really have to be right up on the cooler to even hear the slightest hum or wind noise coming from this Silent Wings PWM 135mm fan.
Once we allowed the fan to run with 12V, and it registered spinning at 2106 RPM via AIDA64, we could just ever so slightly pick up on the fan on the Dark Rock 3.
Just like with the other results from similar fans from be quiet!, we also found this one to have a noise level of 39 dB at this point, which is nothing to pass over quickly when pondering a new cooler in a PC that may sit within two feet of your ears.
