As most people know, when ordering computer parts such as a CPU Fan or a case fan, the sound they give off is told in Db.
I was wondering if there was some way i could measure the amount of "Db" my computer gives off.
and if its some kind of tool, where can i get it?

Measuring the number of decibles that your computer gives off should be fairly easy...

The way I'd do it is just to record some noise from my microphone input at a generic volume level, then analyze it with an audio analyzer. I dunno where you could find one, but fruity loops 3 might have a tool to tell you the decibel level of a clip or something.

Try a google for "decible measurement" or go to your nearest radio shack and ask for a decible measurement tool.

Remember, however, that the diff between 1 decible and 2 is not the same as 4 and 5. From 1 to 2, the sound intensity should increase 10 times. From 2 to 3, another ten times. So if you try to calculate the decibel level for your different components, you're gonna run into trouble.

I'm not sure of cost, but there are instruments you can by that show you how many decibels something is giving off.
