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.




Temperature numbers on the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB Vapor-X OC aren't too bad, sitting just a little below the half way mark. This is pretty good considering that we're overclocked.



Sound Test



Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter, we quickly find ourselves 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 really solid, sitting a decent chunk into the bottom half of our graph here. Again, this is pretty impressive considering that we overclocked the card even further.
