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 fantastic. Looking above, you can see the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB TOXIC sits at the very bottom of the pack.

 

The new cooler from Sapphire is a serious piece of work, and you can see, the numbers truly speak for themselves in both the noise and temperature tests.
