Palit RTX 3090 GameRock 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.

Considering both Performance and Silent BIOS modes produced more than 40dBa noise, noise-normalising to 40dBa caused temperatures to rise. In the case of the Silent BIOS, the peak temperature increased by 3C, and for the Performance BIOS it increased by 2C. Both results are therefore a fair bit hotter than the Eagle OC, but we do have to take into account the fact that the Palit GPU has higher power targets than the Eagle OC – by 40W and 70W, when using the Silent and Performance BIOS, respectively.
