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 are sitting towards the top of the pack, but they're not at an insane level. You can see we're in the high 60s for load and mid 60s for idle. Considering the overclock and the power of the card, these are numbers are fairly good.
