    LSHS-X500 @63°C versus XP-90 58°C, each test repeated twice.

    Test System 2

    P4 2A Test Setup - Ambient temp during test ~26.5-28.5°C
    CPU P4 2A S478 2.0 @ 3.2 GHz 1.60 Vcore
    Mainboard Asus P4P800
    Memory 2*256Mb PC3200

  • Madshrimps (c) Madshrimps (c)

    LSHS-X500 @47°C versus Intel Stock 50°C, each test repeated twice.

    However, the X-500 temp was taken with ambient temp @28.5°C versus 26.5°C for the Intel Stock test. Therefore, the Intel Stock unit would have been topped @52°C. Please note the screen shot with CPU fan ~2,100 rpm versus ~3,100 rpm Intel.

    Sound level measurement

  • CEM DT-8850 Digital Sound Level Meter

    To measure the sound level, a power supply with internal fan disconnected and the microphone placed ~ 18 Inches (45cm) from the fans which are in free standing on 3" foam pad.

  • X-500 @ ~2,200 rpm
  • Intel Stock @ ~3,000 rpm

    Madshrimps (c)

    Ambient noise level of 37.7 dBA, the X500 returns 41.3 dBA and the Intel at 45.1 dBA, adding the Intel fan generates a frequency more "intrusive" to the ears.
