None of the reviews that ive found yet have any info on real noise...

But for $80 bucks it looks like it might be worth a shot.

"Advanced Control and Configuration– Configurable options range from whisper quiet operation to extreme cooling for overclocking…all at the touch of a button. The micro-controller auto-regulates the system in all modes of operation to ensure continuous protection."

There's also the PURE
"Extremely Quiet CPU Cooling."

Edit: Dang looks like the Pure wasn't that quiet, so i doubt the domino would be better. :cry:

More reviews

PC Perspective (no dB measurements, but say it is 'all but silent in quiet mode')
http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=748&type=expert

NeoSeeker ('a bit loud')

Techpowerup ('near silent in normal operation. PWM control makes fan loud under heavy load')
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Cool ... ALC/5.html

Bit-Tech (quality issues with radiator barbs, does not perform well at low fan setting)
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/coolin ... mino-alc/5


Looks like it has three settings: low (underperforming good fan heatsinks), high (way too noisy for SPCR) and PWM control (varies between lo & hi, according to temps).

It may not be SPCR level quiet out of the box based on the reviews above, and it has (had) quality issues.

Tread with caution.
