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).

What's so great about the 61c heat, though, is the fact it's done with such low noise levels. Sometimes we see these cards that offer nice temperatures run quite loud; this isn't the case here, though.
