MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Review

Acoustic Performance

Acoustic recordings are taken while the system sits at the desktop under minimum load. Then we run 3DMark’s FireStrike 1.1 and take the measurements again once the sound has settled to its maximum. All fans were left to the MSI-supplied defaults. We recorded audio from a 1m distance from the base unit at approximately the same level.

The fans do noticeably ramp up a bit once heavy gaming is taking place. However, since most mobile gamers will be using headphones, the levels aren’t loud enough to affect your listening pleasure, and they won’t be too irritating for anyone else nearby. A peak level of 47dB at 1m is not particularly noisy.
