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 are a little louder than the 768MB Cyclone version, quieter than the Palit one yet a little louder than the GIGABYTE. The noise levels we're seeing from the model are ultimately impressive.
