HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB Video Card in CrossFire - Temperature and Sound Tests

We get another HD 5770 and figure we should CrossFire it up with the one we already have. How do the numbers look with HIS' HD 5770 in tandem?

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.

Like our other HD 5000 series CrossFire testing, adding the second card seems to do very little to overall temperature.

 


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).

Adding the second card makes the setup a little louder, but nothing that is worth worrying about.
