Temperature Test

The temperature of the core is pulled from MSI Afterburner with the max reading used after a completed run of 3DMark Vantage at the Performance preset.

When it comes to heat, you can see the ASUS GTX 780 ROG Poseidon Platinum 3GB OC sits pretty much in the middle of the pack. Of course, we're only using the air part of the cooler and not the water cooling ability. Considering the performance of the card, though, these numbers are very impressive.

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).

Noise levels are fantastic. Looking above, you can see we're sitting in the bottom half of the pack. Idle numbers are exceptionally strong with it sitting considerably lower than many other offerings.
