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, as you can see above, sit towards the middle of the pack. Idle numbers are extremely good, but you can see a decent little jump in noise levels when we get to load.
