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 2cm 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).

Like the heat numbers you can see we're sitting in the middle of the pack coming in a little over 60 dB under load. This is a good number considering the performance on hand, and you can see the video cards that come in louder are actually slower.
