What is the dB level?
It has a variable fan control-1350-2600rpm +/- 10% (i have it at max)
I am looking for actual db measurements, but me personally, it doesn't sound any louder than the stock setup.
1350 RPM is considered silent mode @18db +/- 10%
2600 RPM is considered low noise @27.5db +/- 10%
Note: weight is "only" 450G for the assembly.
I have seen other coolers that weigh 500-650G.
If one is not careful, those much more heavy setups can crack/break motherboards.
Lets remember these heavy heatsinks are NOT vertical but horizontal, pulling on the motherboard-always consider extra support for it.
