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).

A little over 62dB sees the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC again sit in the middle of the pack, which makes its overall cooling solution quite reasonable.
