ASUS GeForce GTX 980 4GB 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.





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 on the higher-end version of the STRIX card continues to be excellent. At idle, we don't have any noise thanks to the fan not spinning. Under load, you can see we're able to come in at a lower noise level than our R9 290X, even with the stronger performance.
