HIS Radeon HD 6870 1GB Video Card in Crossfire - Sound Test

We've checked out the HD 6850 in CF and since we've got another HD 6870 from HIS, it's time to turn our attention to the bigger brother in tandem.

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).

Between the two HD 6800 CF setups this one is a little louder, but nothing too serious.
