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.

At 77 C, the ZOTAC is running a little warm, but not at a level that would at all worry us. Compared to the reference card, we're a couple of degrees cooler while still adding a bunch of extra performance. We'd say that's a clear win for the cooler here.

 

 

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 strong, and the ZOTAC GTX 980 4GB AMP! Omega Edition OC sits towards the middle of the pack. Considering the performance of the card, this is a good number to be at.
