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).

When it comes to the noise side of things you can see we're sitting in the upper half of the pack. Overall the number isn't too bad sitting around the mid 60dB mark.
