With the TES 1326 Infrared Thermometer literally in hand we found ourselves getting real-world temperatures from the products we test at load (3D clock speeds).
There are two places we pull temperature from - the back of the card directly behind the core and if the card is dual slot and has an exhaust point we also pull a temperate from there, as seen in the picture.
This is what we've been waiting for all along. Now, what we need to pay attention to here is that the standard GTX 260+ has a shroud covering the back which is going to bump a few degrees off the stock model. So with that said, the numbers we're getting from the Razor Edition which is getting a temperature directly off the PCB is very impressive considering its single slot design.
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).
One of the most important tests with a card like this has to be the sound one; we said the small fan was a concern for us. But as you can see, getting a reading from above the cooler shows a good job, giving us numbers similar to the stock cooler.
