AMD 2800+ Barton HSF Noise Level?

  Daddo 10:26 24 Mar 2004

Does anyone know what noise level(s) the stock HSF that comes boxed with the XP2800+ Barton runs at?

I'm looking for a fairly quiet HSF for my XP2800+ Barton, is a Fan Noise of 27.85 dB(A) quieter than the stock HSF?

As a general rule, you need to get a fan with noise under 20dba if you want to get better one than stock. Stock HSF is for cooling not for noise level. You could get one good fan with speed controller and change the fan speed to get a balance of noise and cooling performance.
