Sound Tests

 

 

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

 

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

While overall noise does indeed jump, we're still a massive 10dB below the HD 6990 and you can see overclocked, nothing can touch this card at these noise levels. It really shows us the strength of the cooler.
