MSI GE620 Gaming Laptop Review (Core i7/Nvidia)

We measure from a distance of around 2 foot from the chassis with our Extech digital sound level meter to mirror a real world situation.

KitGuru noise guide
10dBA – Normal Breathing/Rustling Leaves
20-25dBA – Whisper
30dBA – High Quality Computer fan
40dBA – A Bubbling Brook, or a Refridgerator
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
120dBA – Front row rock concert/Jet Engine
130dBA – Threshold of Pain
140dBA – Military Jet takeoff/Gunshot (close range)
160dBA – Instant Perforation of eardrum

When loaded, this system becomes clearly audible, and even slightly annoying. When watching a bluray movie, the noise levels move between 33 dBa and 35.5 dBa, but when gaming this rises to over 41 dBa. We think MSI should have improved the cooling system inside the machine, because the fan is having to work very hard to keep the temperatures in check. As we recorded earlier in the review, the CPU will rise to almost 85c when fully loaded.
