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).

This graph paints such a good picture for what exactly we're dealing with. In typical high end ASUS fashion, we've got this huge amount of power on offer at just an extremely low noise level. Compared to the HD 6990, the MARS II seems silent.
