ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB Video Card Review
It's been a while since we've looked at an ASUS video card, and we get stuck back into it today with the R9 270X 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 ASUS R9 270X DirectCU II TOP 2GB look really strong, as you see we're sitting in the bottom half of the pack. Idle numbers again, like the temperature test, look really good though.
