MSI strap the popular Twin Frozr III cooler to the new AMD Radeon HD 7950. We take the time to overclock it and see how it goes.

Sound Test

 

 

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 as you'd expect sit towards the top of the pack due to the extra clocks and voltage we're running through the card. The numbers aren't too bad, though, considering the performance we're getting out of the setup.
