Noise = 62 dB, how bad is that? - Page 4

post #31 of 38
My computer is pretty loud too. I can easily tell how much my CPU is under load by how fast the fan on the heatsink is spinning.

It's a 3k RPM fan that is REALLY loud.

Some of you are talking about dB and some about dBA... it's like TB and TiB. You can't compare it directly.

still, 60dB is loud. and MUCH louder than 40dB
I just looked up a decibel scale and it told me 70dba = normal conversation..
