The last of the Turbo HD 5800 series is looked at from HIS. This time it's the more budget focused HD 5830.

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 HD 5830 seems to run a little warmer here on the HIS compared to not only the other HD 5830s, but most other cards in general.

 


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).

As for noise levels, it sits in line with the HD 5850 Turbo and is quieter than the other two HD 5830s when under load.
