Inno3D GeForce GTX 285 Overclock Graphics Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

Inno3D has come straight out with an overclocked GTX 285. We have a closer look at it to see how it performs up against a stock model.

Temperature Tests

 

 

With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).

 

There are two places we pull temperature from - the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.

Very little in temperature difference is seen between the stock GIGABYTE card and the overclocked Inno3D offering.

 

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).

It doesn't come as any real surprise that the noise levels on both GTX 285 offerings are almost identical.
