Sound Tests

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).

Idle noise continues to stay good, but we can see load noise does jump up a bit once we crank the clocks up. Saying that; it's not anywhere near as bad as the GTX 480 was when we overclocked it.
