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 good news is that the temperature numbers don't come at the cost of high noise levels. Looking above, you can again see we're sitting well into the bottom half of the graph here.
