Benchmarks - Sound
The other performance meter when it comes to cases is noise levels. We measure the noise levels of the P160 at 12" away from the closed chassis with the power supply and heatsink fans turned off. Take a look at our results.
As we mentioned in the thermal benchmark section, since the P160 came with the single 120mm fan, we installed a second 120mm fan with the same specifications, 1600rpm and rated at about 28dBA to measure the sound of the case. Our results showed that the P160 still performed extremely well in the sound category of our benchmarks at about 44.4 decibels, a few decibels quieter than equally cooled Lian Li PC-V1000, which also had dual 120mm fans, but with holes all over the case.
