Sound Test

 

 

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 running a little warmer at load, you can see that the card is super silent when it comes to idle and load noise levels, no doubt making the card extremely attractive for those people who are noise consensus.
