Often you’ll see massive active fan solutions that can indeed get rid of the heat, yet all the fans these days make the PC a noisy son of a gun. Power consumption It’s time to do some actual testing with this card. Looking at it from a performance versus wattage point of view, the power consumption is pretty good with the 55nm products. A normal audible noise level. Of course it depends a lot on your PC configuration as well. The card first surfaced in May, during the run-up for the Computex event. Under the condition of overclocking and high temperature, MSI R Cyclone series can still provide stable performance.

After driver installation, reboot the PC and you are ready to go to play games and move into your fragging spree. Crossfire is something else, you add another Watts. Though the Radeon HD can peak roughly 30 Watts higher during your game sessions opposed mei the olderin IDLE desktop mode it has become more energy efficient.

So while not silent, it isn’t terribly noisy either. Furthermore, Tantalum’s high stability greatly reduces electricity less package and provides high quality power supply. MSI It seems like not too many companies out there are taking the time and implementing a design thats different from reference, let alone the use of higher quality materials.

Well, there is always noise in the background, from the streets, from the HD, PSU fan etc etc, so this is by a mile or two not a precise measurement. There are many good PSUs available, over the years we’ve msl a lot of them and have loads of recommended PSUs for you to check out in there, have a look. I wouldn’t use it like that. Power consumption It’s time to do some actual testing with this card.

Typically the e4890 Radeon products come with a bit of ms average cooler. We take the dBA meter, move away 75 CM and then aim the device at the active fan on the graphics card. That’s why we measure the dBA level. When graphics cards produce a lot of heat, that heat usually needs to be transported away from the hot core as fast as possible.

Therefore, SSC can provide stable current when under extreme overclocking.

Noise Levels coming from the graphics card When graphics cards produce a lot of heat, that heat usually needs to be transported away from the hot core as fast as possible. Next to that we have energy saving functions disabled for this motherboard and processor to ensure consistent benchmark results. Cooler is blocking one of the CFX fingers. The card’s star attraction is the cooler, consisting of a GPU heatsink with radially-projecting aluminum fins, from this heatsink about four 8 mm heat-pipes arise, conveying heat to two suspended, curved aluminum fin blocks on either sides of the heatsink.

I like that cooler. The letter A is added to indicate the correction that was made in the measurement. Hi-c CAP is comprised by rear Tantalum which is an extremely expensive but steady metal. Moreover, solid capacitor contains no liquid, leaking accident will not occur.

Of course the card is also CrossfireX compatible. It’s the standard, anno A normal audible noise level.

Solid capacitor has longer life span than Liquid. I recommend a PSU of, at the very least, Watts. That’s what I meant. Anyway, back to temperatures.

Temperatures can rise up to 90 degrees C on these products considered normal these days. Often you’ll see massive active fan solutions that can indeed get rid of the heat, yet all the fans these days make the PC a noisy son of a gun.

A big majority of HD cards have two 6-pin connectors. Frequencies below 1kHz and above 6kHz are attenuated, whereas frequencies between 1kHz and 6kHz are amplified by the A weighting. Wow that cooler looks huge!

In other words, the measured noise levels in dB will not reflect the actual human perception of the loudness of the noise.
