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).

Unfortunately these low temps do come at the cost of noise. Even though we were getting 70dB from our Sound Meter, to be honest it doesn't sound that loud. Considering we've heard GTX 400 cards at 100% fan speed which put out similar numbers, they sound considerably louder.
