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).

Not only do the cards run quite warm, but the new R9 290X 4GB is quite a loud card.

 

We're really looking forward to seeing what partners do with the cooler in the coming weeks and months.
