We consider the effects of additive and multiplicative noise on the asymptotic behavior of a fourth order parabolic equation arising in the study of phase transitions. On account that the deterministic model presents three different time scales, in this paper we have established some conditions under which the third time scale, which encounter finite dimensional behavior of the system, is preserved under both additive and multiplicative linear noise. In particular we have proved the existence of a random attractor in both cases, and observed that the order of magnitude of the third time scale is also preserved.
