Palit RTX 3060 StormX OC Review

Following on from our stock thermal and acoustic testing, here we re-test the operating temperature of the GPU, but with noise levels normalised to 40dBa. This allows us to measure the efficiency of the overall cooling solution as varying noise levels as a result of more aggressive fan curves are no longer a factor.

Fan speed only needed to increase by 130rpm for the StormX OC to hit 40dBa, meaning temperatures didn't really drop down much when we tested noise-normalised thermals. We can see a clear gulf between the StormX OC and both the Gigabyte Gaming OC and MSI Gaming X Trio, but again – those cards are much, much bigger.
