Noise is generally the bain of most consumers lives and in the hope of finding the quietest operation, we feel it’s necessary to show you the audio level of components. Typically with a desktop system we would fit a

Compared to a typical case fan that we find inside a desktop system, blower type fans are not quite as quiet and this is simply down to the fact that they need to shift a large volume of air through a small confined space – this means ramping up the speed that the fan runs at and thus the noise levels inherently rise as well. Whilst at full idle the fan on our Brix powered down, reducing the system to a 0dBA output. This is, however, until we start to run a CPU or GPU intensive application. At this point the fan appears to go crazy and the noise level shoots up to above 60dBA – much louder than some of the high performance graphics cards that we have pushed to the limit.
