Wouldn't Thermaltake TY-14X fans have been better than the Phanteks ones ?

So now you and yourself are ganging up on me in a 3 sided conversation? tongue.gif
Thanks, I have seen that before. I had forgotten about it. That's a lot of work to get a floor of 11dB In my 28-30dBA room I just cheat and move the sound meter in closer. 30dB @ 30cm is 19.54dB @ 100cm. But equally as important is checking the level at different angles from source, especially when itis only a short distance away. Problem is calculating the cumulative difference added in by sound floor level. As in if room sound floor is 30dB and we are mesuring 40dB at 30 cm, what part of that 40dB is being caused by the 30dB sound floor?

Simple single answer is NO. At least that's my opinion.

Have a look at their site and see if you can find any components you own. What they state as 20dBA starts to get pretty noisy. That's Asus GTX960 Strix running @ 2000RPM. Heck, even a WB Scorpio Black (17dBA) can be found somewhat annoying if 600-700RPM is as high as your system fans go. Anything below 14dBA is something quite close to my noise floor.
Having an MSI 980TI lightning instead of that Asus would've dropped it below 20dBA.

I have looked. I go there often. I don't need to look at their sound level reading to know what is or is not a reasonable amount of noise. The fact is their reading are in an 'unreal environment'. most of our living environments have a 25-30dBA sound floor.

Considering normal breathing is about 10dBA, rustling leaves or a mosquito are about 20dBA and a library is about 30dBA, you must live in a very very quiet place. Normal conversation is 50-60dBA. tongue.gif

Here are some other dB comparisons;
10dB Absolute silence
13dB Incandescent light bulb hum
15dB Pin drop from a height of 1 centimeter heard at a distance of 1 meter
30dB Totally quiet night time in desert
40dB Whispering
60dB Normal conversation

Personally I find 35-40dB to be as loud as I am comfortable with. 30dB is nice.

Maybe I wasn't clear enough.

I could understand if was running my washing machine, TV and every single thing making noise simultaneously, then those 2000RPM tiny whiners might sound quiet.

I guess you were not clear .. and it is still not clear. tongue.gif
Are you saying their 20dB measurement is unrealistically low? That it should be a louder measurement? Like maybe 30-35dB?

That is how I took it, and I agree. I find SPCR's readings to fall in line from component to component, but that there is a baseline offset. Their noise level readings are always ~8-10 dB lower than what I measure at 1m on the same component. But, it is impossible to say what is right or wrong due to environmental factors.

Well yes, I can definitely hear a mosquito, 20dB, from a distance of one meter, but that 20dBA SPCR says is quite a bit louder biggrin.gif I however perceive (by ear) that their results are quite consistent so I'm not overly bothered bout that.
I don't know if it matters that they use dBA.
