With so many variables involved in testing a fan, we decided to test fans using a simple and reliable method that involves measuring noise levels. When dealing with fans, manufacturer’s specifications should always be taken with a large pinch of salt which is why we want to find out the real world noise levels of the fan compared to some of its closest competitors. Using an accurate sound level meter positioned 30cm away from each fan, we can accurately measure the noise levels while the fan is operational to show you the fan’s acoustic output via delta noise levels.

While the Shadow Wings fans may not be quite as quiet as their Silent Wings 2/Dark Wings brothers, they still manage to generally outperform the Noctua and Phanteks competitors with the 2,200 RPM version being the exception. At the 7V setting the Shadow Wings managed to perform at an even lower acoustic output with the 800 RPM version becoming almost inaudible.
