Noise Testing

I couldn’t do all of this testing without taking a look at the overall noise output of each of the coolers right? Going in I wasn’t really sure what to expect really. My experience with the AMD coolers has been really good but against coolers like the Noctuas? Well, it ended up being the Phanteks cooler that blew me away here. With the speeds turned all the way up it was the quietest of all of the coolers. The large fan size does help though, they didn’t have to run it as high of an RPM to keep things cool compared to the C7 and the L9A/L9x65. That said the L9A was right behind, even with its higher RPM. None of the coolers were really loud but the Cryorig C7 and ID Cooling IS-40v3 with their small fan sizes did end up being the loudest air coolers. The Corsair H60 also surprised me here, not only was it a little loud, but I also couldn’t get it to run at anything but 100% for the fan. So while the cooling was great it isn’t going to be a good option for noise.
