When you first turn on the FiercePC Imperial Stormer, there is a swishing sound as the pump kicks into action.

But that’s generally the loudest sound you’ll hear from it. At idle, the machine is whisper-quiet, and when under load, although the sound of the fans is noticeable, it’s still only quite subtle, with the water cooling loop barely breaking into a sweat.
