GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 470 Super Overclock Video Card - Sound Test

We look at another Super Overclock card from GIGABYTE. This one's a little meaner than the HD 5770, though.

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).

The good news is that coolness isn't coming at the cost of high noise levels. The card runs significantly quieter than the reference cooler which is fantastic news.
