MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Video Card - Sound Test

It's nice to know that someone out there made the effort to get us a GTX 580, even if it wasn't NVIDIA.

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 LOT more impressive, sitting a good chunk lower than the GIGABYTE GTX 480 SOC and the GTX 480 Super OC from Galaxy. This is good news. Something interesting, though, is the idle noise; that's really good.
