Benchmarks - Acoustic Results
Temperatures at idle, and particularly load, are important, but many people regard the noise levels of their PC as an even higher priority. We hold a sound meter 20cm from the fans and pump to measure overall sound, while stopping all other system fans to isolate the noise from the subject.

The software keeps the fans at around 500 RPM while idle, preventing any real sound from being generated, despite blowing a fairly noticeable amount of air through the tightly packed radiator. Most coolers, whether AIOs or air cooling, are roughly around the same ball park and won’t be noticed unless in an incredibly quiet environment. Check the results below.

Loading up the 130W CPU generates a substantial amount of heat for any cooler to deal with; heat generally also generates noise. We find that the 3930K, once overclocked to 4.4GHz, consumes around 160W of power. We mentioned on the previous page that the cooler was performing well compared to the X62, however, the acoustics are also in line with that kind of performance.
