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).

The card might run a bit warm...but damn does it run quiet. Considering the overclock, the extra voltage, and the overall boost in performance, the noise levels on this card are really fantastic.
