ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP 3GB Overclocked Video Card Review

It's been a while since we've looked at an ASUS video card, but we get stuck back into it today with the OC-friendly R9 280X DirectCU II TOP 3GB. (TPE:2357)

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 on the card are really strong with the card sitting in the bottom half of the pack here. Idle numbers are extremely impressive coming in at just 51.8dB.
