We normally only offer one acoustic sample for your listen pleasure, but this time around we have two. The first Frosty Acoustic Sample is of the Goliath with the standard 60mm fan, and the second is with the 80mm fan and adaptor plate. The images can be a bit different each time if the length of the recoding is not the same so give a listen to the recording before deciding which fan is louder, or if they are both about the same.

Hear these heatsinks by clicking on the headphones.

The results actually surprised us more than you think. While the performance of the Goliath overall is very good, we had anticipated a larger separation between the two fans.

This was not the case. Both the 60mm fan, and the 80mm fan produced nearly identical temperature results from the Goliath. Interesting indeed.
