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).

While the card manages to idle at an attractive level, when we get into games the card starts to get very audible. Like we mentioned on the previous page, the extra voltage across the core, memory and AUX means the card has to work harder than normal.
