Asus Matrix HD7970 Platinum Graphics Card Review

The tests were performed in a controlled air conditioned room with temperatures maintained at a constant 24c – a comfortable environment for the majority of people reading this.

Idle temperatures were measured after sitting at the desktop for 30 minutes. Load measurements were acquired by playing Crysis Warhead for 30 minutes and measuring the peak temperature. We also have included Furmark results, recording maximum temperatures throughout a 30 minute stress test. All fan settings were left on automatic.

Performance of this cooler is very impressive when idle, averaging 35c. When loaded, the temperatures rise to 70c when gaming, and 81c when under Furmark’s intensive Stress test. These are higher load temperatures than the other highly overclocked HD7970 solutions we have tested in recent months and between 2-4c worse than the Sapphire HD7970 Toxic Edition with Lethal Boost enabled.
