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 are a little on the higher side, but considering the amount of performance that is coming out of the card and the temperature we're getting, this number isn't too bad at all and the larger fans mean that the noise levels aren't as aggressive verse a card that has smaller fans.
