We take our noise measurements with the sound meter positioned 1 foot from the graphics card. I measured the noise floor to be 32 dBA, thus anything above this level can be attributed to the graphics cards. The power supply is passive for the entire power output range we tested all graphics cards in, while all CPU and system fans were disabled. A reading under load comes from running Cyberpunk 2077 for 30 minutes.
Default fan behaviour for the single 100mm on the StormX OC sees it spins up to 54%, or 1570rpm, with a noise reading of 39dBa. This certainly isn't nearly as loud as something like the RX 5700, but it was just about audible over our system's case fans while gaming. I still wouldn't class it as a loud card, but is is audible.
