Palit GeForce GTX 275 896MB Graphics Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

We have a look at the GTX 275 from Palit and see if the non-reference cooler can help it stand out from the pack.

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.

The big cooler does good things for temperatures with the GTX 275 from Palit giving us good numbers.

 

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).

While being louder than the GTS 250, the cooler that Palit has chosen does come in quieter than the stock cooler that the HD 4890 uses.
