XFX R7 240 Core Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8xAA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner

Considering the XFX R7 240 is passively cooled by a fan-less heat sink, I would say it did fantastic! At stock speeds it did average, while overclocked it did a few degrees worse than the NVIDIA card. There is an unused fan header at the back of the card, a 2-pin style common on graphics cards. You can either buy a fan with this header or find adapters. Two 80mm fans strapped to this card with some volt mods would be a great way to push it further!
