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 where the card really shines, though, being whisper quiet. Like the other DirectCU card it sits right at the bottom of the chart here and this is one graph where being lower is better.
