We've seen the packaging, now is the time to take a look at the cooler itself...
When I first ripped of the plastic covering on the base I was a little disappointed:

Fan and Noise
As I don't have a dba meter at the moment, I will have to judge the noise by my own ear. As stated in the testing procedure in the following pages, I am using an Antec P180b for the review. The fans are set to medium which is audible, but only a whisper.
With the fan going full pelt, the Infinity is just audible over the rest of the system when overclocked. At idle you cannot hear it. To me this is awesome for a cooler boasting the cooling prowess that the Infinity does, as you can see in later pages.
If you're a fan of quiet in your case, then you will be happy with the Infinity sitting in there, I am confident of that.
