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).

Looking at the noise side of things, you can see again the Direct CU II card sits towards the bottom of the pack which is exactly where you want to be in this graph. You can continue to see the power of the DirectCU II cooler.
