MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB HAWK Overclocked Video Card Review - Sound Test

MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB HAWK Overclocked Video Card Review

We test out the HAWK based Radeon R9 270X. Let's see just what kind of overclock we can get out of this video card. We're expecting big things.

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).

The card might run a bit warmÂ…but damn does it run quiet. Considering the overclock, the extra voltage, and the overall boost in performance, the noise levels on this card are really fantastic.
