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).

Not only does our MSI R9 290X 4GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC run cooler, but it also manages to run a few dB quieter.

 

It's not a huge amount, but this is an overall strong improvement over the reference cooler when combined with the decent drop in temperature.
