ASUS GeForce GTX 780 6GB STRIX OC Video Card Review

Temperature Test

 

 

The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run of 3DMark Vantage at the Performance preset.

Looking above, you can see the overall temperature numbers are strong. The idle does, of course, sit a little higher than normal, but this is to be expected as fans aren't spinning.

 

 

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).

What's really awesome is that when the fans do finally decide to start spinning, they do so at a really low noise level.
