Test results: Noise levels and temperature
The noise level of graphics cards is measured at a distance of 10 centimeters within a soundproof box, where we angle the sensor. The load-test is an average of 1 minute measured during an extended 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme run, after the card has been warmed up for about 10 minutes using the same benchmark.
The GT 1030 with its 30 watt TDP is not easy to heat up. With 64 degrees this card is in the cool camp together with the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 960.
