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).

When it comes to noise levels, you can see we're in the top half of the pack. The card is by no means loud, but it does sit higher than some of the other R9 cards we've looked at. What's really impressive though, is the whisper quite idle level that also managed to give us the really strong idle temperature we saw on the last page.
