NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Video Cards in SLI & Overclocked

By: Shawn Baker | NVIDIA SLI Articles in Video Cards | Posted: Oct 16, 2014 9:02 pm

Temperature Test



The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run of 3DMark Vantage at the Performance preset.




With overclocking thrown into the equation, you can see that the temperature numbers are pretty strong, with the hottest card coming in at 80 C. Considering we're dealing with two cards here, and they're both overclocked with a voltage increase, the load and idle numbers are extremely solid.



Sound Test



Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter, we quickly find ourselves 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 levels on the setup are surprisingly impressive with the setup continuing to sit in the bottom half of the graph here. Considering the amount of power offered here, this is an impressive load number.
