    According to CM max is 39dB.

    According to Toms 31dB, so yes pretty damn quiet..

    Whether its worth it or not depends...
    Are you getting high temps?
    Does the stock cooler make unbearable noise?
    Will you be overclocking?

    If yes to any of the above, then its worth it to get the Hyper 212 Evo since they are so cheap anyway.
  2. how loud is this compared to the stock i5 3570k fan?
  3. About 48dB if I remember correctly...
  4. thanks
  5. Pleasure...
  6. Be careful of the size of the hyper 212 evo. I just put it into a new build of mine and it actually blocks my 4th ram slot. So although 12gb will still be more than enough for me, it's a little irritating I can't use the other stick.

    I assume you have an mATX board?
