Noise Level Results
As far as the noise levels go, I was impressed here as well. These PH-F140 fans offer some 10 CFM more than the Noctua 140mm solution, but as you can see, that CFM doesn't come at a huge gain in noise levels. The 39 dB rating we recorded is very respectable and is what I would consider "quiet".
Once the fans received 12V and were spinning at speeds between 1175 and 1207 RPM in AIDA64, the noise levels do increase a bit, but again the 54 dB reading I got here is still far into the top half of the charts. While it was audible on the test bench, I don't hear it during normal operation inside of the 600T SE it is housed in now.
