Acoustic Performance

The coolers are lined up according to their noise levels (low to high):

Looks like Scythe Kama Angle is the quieter of the two new solutions reviewed today. In idle mode its fan slows down to 400 RPM making the cooler almost completely noiseless. ThermoLab BARAM with two fans at 860 RPM follows shortly behind falling into the comfortable acoustic zone. Thermaltake TMG IA1 cooler also passes this milestone. As for the level of generated noise during maximum fan rotation speed, this operational mode is totally unacceptable for home use (in case of Scythe Kama Angle we are only talking about a faster Slip Stream 120mm fan).
