Noise levels and temperatures
In contrast with all other custom 1080 Tis, the XLR8 OC is not semi-passive. This results in it having even higher noise levels than the Founders Edition.
Under Load the PNY XLR8 OC is clearly audible. It is not a lot quieter than the Founders Edition and ends up directly in between two Inno3D cards. This means the PNY is not particularly suited for a quiet gaming system.
The temperature is under control: we measure 74 degrees Celsius after two runs in Metro Last Light.
