Noise, Power Consumption and Temperatures


Noise

Something this model has over the more renowned Phantom is the 0db operation of the fans. This means that at idle you can’t hear a thing. On this card, the combination of larger heat sink and higher air flow fans means a lower operating speed and lower noise at load.

Power Consumption

The best thing about the Maxwell range is the incredibly low power requirement for the performance. At just 244W at load, that’s just 10W more than a GTX 980.

Temperatures

73°c isn’t amazing, but it’s well within the safety limits of the Maxwell core. The increase to 74°c once overclocked just goes to show how good this cooling solution is.
