Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine's Heaven Benchmark Version 2.5, with MSI's Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1200 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's 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 20-minute cool-down, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 2.5 1920x1200 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20 minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Being a lower power card, not much work is required to keep them cool. Both cards stay at an acceptable temperature in both stock and overclocked situations, but it is apparent that that heatpipe-equipped cooler of the Sapphire card makes a different in the top end.
