VisionTek Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card Review (Page 22)

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).

Looking above you can see we're just shy of 60dB under load, which sees the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB sit in the bottom half of the pack. This is a good number that goes with a decent temperature number.
