Acoustic, Power & Thermal Performance

Acoustic Performance

There was only a negligible increase in the system’s noise output between idle and load conditions. Under extreme load, the amount of noise produced is extremely low and makes for a magnificent gaming experience. However, the idle results are bizarre and pretty loud for an ATX system. Thankfully, this can be rectified by reducing the fan’s RPM values during low power states.

Power Consumption

As you might expect, the R9 380 consumes more wattage than NVIDIA’s highly efficient Maxwell architecture. Additionally, the FX-6300 utilizes a higher TDP than Intel chips. Once combined, this results in acceptable load results but the idle wattage is less than ideal. However, when you factor the price differences between AMD and other hardware, it’s not a major problem.

Thermal Performance

It’s impossible to directly compare this AMD-based system to Intel alternatives as the differences in TJMax and core architecture skews the real results. Nevertheless, the CPU’s load temperatures are within thermal limits and the overclock is completely stable. Additionally, the GPU attained excellent temperatures thanks to MSI’s Twin Frozr V cooler. Overall, the thermals under extreme stress are pretty good especially when you take into account the 4.4 GHz frequency and compact water cooling unit.
