EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB SC Video Card Review

Temperature & Noise Testing

Temperatures are important to enthusiasts and gamers, so we took a bit of time and did some temperature testing on the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked 1TB card.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Reference Card Temps:

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 SC Idle

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 SC Load

 The EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked 1GB video card has some of the lowest thermal numbers that we have seen!  The energy efficiency with the NVIDIA Maxwell GPU is impressive and the small GPU cooler that EVGA uses was able to keep the card plenty cool. We are talking about 19C and just 42C at load when gaming. GPU-Z didn’t show the fan speed increase, but the fan did spin faster at load.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GTX 750 cards have great temperature results, but the AIB cooler plays a major role in just how good it will cool.  You also have to worry about fan noise, so let’s take a look at that next.

Sound Testing

We test noise levels with an Extech sound level meter that has ±1.5dB accuracy that meets Type 2 standards. This meter ranges from 35dB to 90dB on the low measurement range, which is perfect for us as our test room usually averages around 36dB. We measure the sound level two inches above the corner of the motherboard with ‘A’ frequency weighting. The microphone wind cover is used to make sure no wind is blowing across the microphone, which would seriously throw off the data.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked 1GB card landed in the middle of the back when it came to noise testing, but the noise level is nothing to be concerned about. We were hitting about 42dB and idle and when gaming. GPU-Z showed the fan speed remaining the same and it looks like there was hardly a difference. We expected no change, but GPU-Z might not fully support all the Maxwell sensors yet as there is no RPM reading yet.

    Gotta say that the temperature benchmarks for this article seem a bit off. 29 degrees idle and 55 degrees load seem to be the accurate numbers. I have no idea how this article got 19 degrees and 42 degrees? I mean was the computer set up in a freezer?

      Bro look it’s SC version also the flow of air in casing matters too.

    Ill be dxxed! I figured the 260x would outperform the regular 750, But it really is not much slower than the Ti. I still do not see justification for upgrading from my current 650Ti , With no gpu boost function the regular 650Ti’s it can overclock like crazy. Especially if you modify the 650Ti’s Bios to unlock the rest of your voltage. However I will run into the problems like this 750 did in the review if I go past 1GB.

    Ye, its ridiculous to think about my GTX 590 uses 149Watts in IDLE!!

    stupid mining cunts

        I agree, A stupid worthless waste of time, It just drives up prices making crappy cards like mine and others prices go way up, It hurts to try to upgrade now, Thanks to that I will be stuck with the stupid 650Ti for awhile. They are too dumb to realize the whole thing is a scam, You really think once your bit coins become worth anything the Federal Reserve Nazi’s Will stand for it?

        • WhoCares

          Well, at least that’s a valid point. But why should we assume that the Federal Reserve will have any credibility left in 10, 20, 30 years? Quite a bold assumption there.

        • Brian Blair

          I agree with that!
          In my opinion the federal reserve never had credibility! The federal reserve was one of the worst things ever done to this country. They of’course conveniently used the excuse of the great depression to push it on us too! But if anyone can read a history book, Or if the books have not been burned yet LOL, People would learn the truth. And the truth is it was military production during WWII that brought the USA out of the depression, And not the federal reserve at all. And still today they of’course have a dramatic excuse to promote any anti-liberty anti-constitutional BS. And for some reason people let the wool go over their eyes and never speak out.

    Just picked up two of these… Gotta say I’m blown away by the little cards. Mining Doge @ ~255Kh/s PER with the stock clocks and only drawing 55w?!? Amazing! Don’t know of any other cards that I can stuff 2 of in a stock dell and pull 500Kh/s without upgrading anything else.

  • basroil

    Looks like Nvidia really just got rid of the need to test power consumption on those cards… Can’t wait to see what the 860 series does to power consumption, should be an absolute beast for performance/power

      Leaked benchmarks showed GTX 870 will have TDP of 150 Watts
