How loud is the 1155 stock cooler?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm about to pull the trigger on a Pentium/Celeron socket 1155 build.

Is it worth getting an aftermarket cooler for one of these? Is the stock cooler near silent/quiet enough to suffice? Is it louder/same or more quiet than my Shuriken at full load?

it's pretty quiet, but it's also pretty awful.

It's not quieter than my Hyper 212+, that's for sure. You can definitely hear it.

It's an absolutely horrible fan though.

from what I have heard, it does the job if you are running the cpu stock. decent temps and decent amount of noise.

if you ever want to overclock or want better temps, get a Cooler Master 212. They are only like $25.00 and are a huge upgrade.

Can't overclock any of these processors, so is it quiet when cooling say a stock Pentium G620? Or is it worth buying something like a Gelid Tranquillo instead?

if you can live with a little bit of fan noise, stick with the stock cooler and spend that money on something else. This is what I am doing in my latest build I am starting this week, i3-2100 running at stock speeds with the stock cooler.

If you want as little noise as possible, get an aftermarket cooler. but the temp difference on that cpu with no overclocking would not be worth it. just my opinion, but I am a cheapskate and noise doesnt bother me.

I would rather just buy a Hyper 212+. It's cheaper and it looks like it performs better, judging from the reviews I looked up.

Hmm, I'm still not sure. What kind of noise does it make? Is it a whiny loud pitched type of fan noise or just the sound of air being moved around like most half decent fans?

high pitched? not really.

it is just louder because it is smaller (and therefore needs more revolutions to produce the same amount of airflow as a larger fan). I wanna say the stock fan is an 80mm or 92mm fan at the largest. it is not overly loud... just a bit louder than an aftermarket one. watch this video, you will see it is not bad really

Yep I saw that video before. While that's perfect for a system that just boots/idles, I'm not sure if that fan is throttling down via BIOS or running at full speed, as I need to know how loud it runs at full fan speed.
