Noise and Temperature Results:
Noise measurements were taken with a digital sound meter approximately 3cm away from the video card fan, reducing the ability of other components such as the CPU or PSU fans to interfering with the final results. Software used for stressing was 3D Mark Vantage, looped until the sound level was stable and stopped rising.


Temperature readings were taken at an ambient temperature of approximately 22 degrees Celsius, on a open test bench and with the fan set to auto. Load and idle temperatures were monitored by MSI's Afterburner utility. Software used for stressing was 3D Mark Vantage, looped until the temperate was stable and stopped rising.


Right out of the box Gainward offer a well engineered and aesthetically pleasing take on the GTX 570. They've included a completely redesigned cooler that features a beefy six heat pipe solution paired with a set of three PWM controlled fans that maintain very low temperatures and noise levels, all while being able to cope with increases of frequency and voltages during our overclock testing.

We love what Gainward has done with the Phantom's cooling solution, they've really stepped it up, and if you can get past the obstacle of a near-three-slot design, then it's a great card for those wanting extra video connectivity, better cooling and acoustics, as well as a highly overclockable video card that gives even the GTX 580 a run for its money.
