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).

This is where the GTX 590 3GB really shines; it's actually a very quiet card which is very surprising. This is probably the biggest benefit to the lower clock speeds; the fact you don't need the fan to spin at some insane speed.
