Noise levels and temperatures
The Palit KalmX is a fully passive card and therefore does not produce any noise at all: we can be very short about that. However, models that do produce noise, only produce little amounts of it. For example, the GTX 1050 Ti from MSI is basically inaudible at a distance of 10 cm and the other actively cooled cards with the same GPU are barely audible, this will especially be true if they're inside a case.
The maximum temperature we measured is 78 degrees Celsius after two laps of Metro: Last Light. This is significantly hotter compared to the other cards.
