Yesterday, I decided to try out the Vantec Tornado 92mm fan as a replacement for the 120mm + 120-80mm adapter on my new athy mobile
Unfortunately, the tornado doesn’t have a controller option as it runs straight from a 12V drive power connector.
Every increase of 10dB(A) reflects a doubling of the noise level.
Whisper = 20dB
Debro’s 120mm+80mm adapter = 26db
Average Computer = 35-40dB
Average Home = 40dB
Conversation = 60dB
Debro’s TV on normal->loud setting 60dB :
Debro’s 92mm Tornado CPU Fan with the case on = 64dB :Z
Car engine @ 15m = 70dB
Industrial Dryer = 75dB
Walkman at 1/2 max volume = 94 dB
Boeing 747’s = 108dB
Debro’s 92mm Tornado CPU Fan with the case off = new definition of audible barrier required.
