Noise Level Results

37 dB audio results aren't all that bad; in fact this is slightly better than the original Dark Knight results and finishes in the top third of the list.

It also seems to have done a single dB better than the Achilles, but does much better than most other Xigmatek submissions up to this point. 52 dB is definitely audible, but not so much that it gets annoying and makes you wish for a more silent fan to replace it with.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
