NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 (Kepler) 2GB Reference Video Card Overclocked - Sound Test

We take the time to overclock the brand new GTX 680 2GB and see what kind of performance boost we can get out of it.

Sound Test

 

 

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).

Noise on the card has also jumped up, but it's not too bad. It does fall in line with our overclocked HD 7900 series cards and we know from our benchmarks that they do come in a bit slower.
