NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Overclocked - Closing the gap on the GTX TITAN - Sound Test

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Overclocked - Closing the gap on the GTX TITAN

We overclock NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 780 video card to see just what kind of performance we can get out the new GPU. It has the $999 GTX TITAN in its view. (NASDAQ:NVDA)

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).

Looking at the noise levels you can see they're slightly elevated, no doubt to help keep the temperature at a stable level. Saying that, the noise levels are only up a little, moving from a load level of 59.4 dB to 60.7 dB when overclocked.
