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.

The big cooler and the mid-range nature of the card. The number are as you'd expect with the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB scoring well into the bottom half of the graph when it comes to temperature.

 

 

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 that noise levels on the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB sit towards the middle of the pack. These are solid numbers when combined with the impressive temperature numbers we saw just above.
