    Fast, looks good, runs high 70s after a year(ish). Not the best cooled card ever.

    The GTX 970 is THE card right now. This EVGA one is pretty awesome. The fans get a little loud under load, but inaudible with closed headphones on. The reasons I went for this over the 390 were power consumption, Shadowplay (basically my entire youtube channel), drivers, and it was cheap. I got this locally for 300 after MIR at my local fry's. I am upgrading from a GTX 765m, so.... Yeah.

    from completed build My first of Many "RVZ01"

    First card they sent was DOA, and you can not unlock the voltage unless you flash bios. Other than that its a solid card, almost at 1500 MHZ and average FPS 59.5 on Heaven! So I am taking its really good.

    This video card eats Ultra setting for breakfast. Crysis 3, Witcher 3 and Project Racing maxed out, no prob. Looking forward to using it with the incoming HTC Vive.

    I'm very glad I bought this card. This was the centerpiece of my PC remodel, and it reinvigorated my build. It is quiet and fast, most of the time. With the fans at 80%, you will certainly know that it's there. I have been playing The Witcher 3 at 1080p with Ultra settings, and it hasn't even hiccuped. In the future I may get another one for SLI, or I may try to switch to a single GTX 980 Ti.

    What a beast. Managed +150 on the core, which showed 1.516GHz during benchmarking. Increasing the voltage to +35(maximum Evga's Precision lets me do) didn't let me do +160MHz so I decided to not fiddle with the voltage. It refused to run stable with any memory increase even at +140mhz, so I tried 135mhz on the core and +100 on the memory. Passed. Tried 135 and 200. Passed. 135 +300, passed. So I was pretty happy with this, but just wanted to know how much it would do. +700Mhz on the memory+135mhz on the core and it ran stable. Tried +800 and +750, but it failed both. That means 8.4Ghz memory 1.5GHz core. With no back plate and with the front heatsink not even touching the memory modules or the VRMs as far as I know.... Pretty insane. Either I hit the lottery or EVGA is king.

    My old Zotac 970 wouldn't do more than +200 on the memory and +240 on the core. Resulted in around 1.45 ghz and 7.4 GHz. But this not only OCes better, but it also runs much cooler and quieter. To keep the Zotac under 70C, the fans would have to spin at 3.5k RPM. This one keeps it at 71-72c, OCed like a truck with 1500 RPM or so. The fans are off most of the time anyway. Even when I play League of Legends. Fans off and temps in the 50s. I've set a custom fan curve, where the fans don't move until it hits 60C and then scale up to 2800RPM if need be, to keep the GPU under 75C, so that it stays at its maximum boost. I don't get coil whine while gaming from the card itself, but I can hear it through my speakers. So I'm not sure whether to return the GPU or the motherboard. I would much rather return the motherboard, given how good this GPU overclocks.

    I went with the 970 over the 290x as they are the same price here in the UK, and the 970 outperforms the 290x @ 1080p in most games. Especially in Far Cry 4, which is the most demanding game that I play. And it would cost me about £20 more to get the Sapphire 290x. I do not plan to upgrade to 4k in the next couple of years, so no I will not die because of my 970 not having enough VRAM to play League @ 5k. My screen upgrade plan is to go for 144hz 1ms. Whether it be 1080p or 1440p depends on how much money I will earn from my summer job this year. Hopefully I get one.

    Eats games in 1080... Maxes at 77 under 100% load (so it's a warmer than my previous 280X), not much else to say.

    Kind of wish it had more VRAM but it still runs extremely well for what I do. Really glad I got it before all the GPU prices went up.

    What can I say? This graphics card works very well and can handle all games on high-ultra settings at 1080 at a nice fps! I really recommend getting this as it is a nice bang for the buck!
