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).
On the noise side of things we also see under these extremely high clocks the fan speed ramps right up. It's worth noting, though, that due to the 10cm fans that MSI use, the noise is nowhere near as piercing as a video card that uses smaller fans.
76dB on a card that has 10cm fans is a lot easier on the ears than 76dB on a card with 7cm fans.
