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 aren't bad and sit towards the middle. Compared to the HD 7970 BE DD, it comes in a little louder. We'll talk about that a little bit more when we wrap up the card in the final thoughts, though.
