Asus E35M1-I Deluxe Fusion Mobo & Thermaltake Armor A30 Review

We measure from a distance of around 1 meter from the chassis and 4 foot from the ground with our Extech digital sound level meter to mirror a real world situation.

The Asus E35M1-I is completely silent, so this will be a rating of the Thermaltake Armor A60 chassis.

KitGuru noise guide
10dBA – Normal Breathing/Rustling Leaves
20-25dBA – Whisper
30dBA – High Quality Computer fan
40dBA – A Bubbling Brook, or a Refrigerator
50dBA – Normal Conversation
60dBA – Laughter
70dBA – Vacuum Cleaner or Hairdryer
80dBA – City Traffic or a Garbage Disposal
90dBA – Motorcycle or Lawnmower
100dBA – MP3 player at maximum output
110dBA – Orchestra

130dBA – Threshold of Pain
140dBA – Military Jet take off/Gunshot (close range)
160dBA – Instant Perforation of eardrum

The Thermaltake Armor A60 is a very quiet chassis design, barely audible, even in a quiet room. The two smaller rear fans could be disconnected which lowers the emitted noise a little, but in all honesty we would leave them all connected for improved thermal performance. Excellent results.
