GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 275 Super Overclock 1792MB Video Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

We mentioned that GIGABYTE had added the GTX 275 Super Overclock series, we see if it can leave a mark like the GTX 265 did.

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.

No real surprises with the temperatures; it runs a little warmer than the non SOC models, but nothing to be worried about.

 


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).

Noise levels like the GTX 260 SOC are pretty impressive, sitting in the bottom half of the pack.
