HIS Radeon HD 5750 iCooler IV Video Card - Temperature and Sound Tests

HIS has now taken the time to jazz up the latest mid-range model from ATI. We see what they've done with this HD 5750 today.

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.

Compared to the stock cooler, you can see a slight drop in the temperature when using the iCooler IV.

 


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 not huge, we manage to also see a small drop when it comes to noise levels which is exactly what we want to see from an upgraded cooler.
