Inno3D GeForce GTX 275 OC Graphics Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

Inno3D has decided to spruce up the new and already quite popular GTX 275 with an overclocked verion. Let's see how it performs.

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.

Heat between the two GTX 275s is similar which is no surprise; we do see them being a fair bit lower than the HD 4890, though.

 

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).

Sound levels between all three cards are quite similar.
