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 the heat isn't coming at the cost of extra noise; at just over 56dB the Sapphire HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition card is extremely quiet.
