    32Db is a lot of noise.

    Actually no it isn't bearing in mind that the dB is a logarithmic ratio, not an absolute measurement.

    But the article quotes 32 dBa (maximum) which is very quiet.

    The standard analogy is that 30 db is equivalent to being in a whisper quiet library.

    However, you have to remember that the CPU cooler will not be the only source of noise from your PC (Graphic card and PSU at least, probably 1 or 2 more fans and maybe memory cooler).

    Also relevant is spread of the tones of noise - eg 4 instruments playing middle C quietly is a lot less distracting than 4 instruments playing clashing notes at same volume

    For a 92mm fan shoving a decent amount of air around, 32 db is pretty good

    Looks almost identical to an (perhaps older) intel stock cooler

    The loudest of my fans is 22dB, with the quietest being around 17, but I spent lots of money on those.

    Airflow is pretty crap at 47CFM, but it's an SP fan pushing 2.8mm/H2O which is rather reasonable - Beats my old Noctuas on performance by a gnat's whisker*... 0.1, to be exact.

    I'd not use this myself, especially on an OC'd machine, but for a stock build in a SFF case or an HTPC sorta thing, this looks like a pretty good option...



    *but not on noise as they're 10dB quieter at 1,000rpm slower with higher airflow!

    Re: Silverstone launches Nitrogon NT09-115X low profile cooler

    So we have AMD producing a new stock cooler that is comparable to third party coolers, and now a third party manufacturer is (essentially) producing a stock Intel cooler?

    My thoughts too. At least the stock cooler has a copper base...I can't see this cooler being a huge improvement.

    and mine... it looks just like the one I got with my i7 4790k apart from having a mount that isn't part of the open frame fan.... so really the only improvement (I'm not sure how much benefit the copper base actually has on the stock fan) is the fact the encased fan isn't attached to the motherboard mounts

    No Nitorgen in the core .... what a misleading name!

    Re: Silverstone launches Nitrogon NT09-115X low profile cooler

    Silverstone have launched a small bit of metal with a fan attached, stop the presses!!

    It looks like a bad stock intel cooler, i.e one of the ones without a copper core. The mounting system looks like it might be more solid though. Either way I would probably just stick with the stock intel.
