NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Video Cards in SLI (Page 14)

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.

When it comes to the temperature, throwing the second card into the mix does cause an increase in our overall load number. At 81c, though, the hottest card isn't at a number that we're worried about, especially when you consider the performance here.

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).

Noise levels on the setup are really impressive here when you consider the performance that is on offer.
