This card is probably the best looking 10 series out there in my opinion other than the Founder's Editions. I went with a blower style because I have 3 fans in the front blowing a lot of air to the rear. The GPU can just suck it in and cool itself.
Amazing card! Not too big a fan of this particular model but I have 2 case fans blowing right to it so its never breached 70c. This was the cheapest 1070 and the only one in stock when I bought it.
Purchased this particular card because of the black/white color scheme I was going for. Good base overclock in this card. Only thing I don't like about the card, and this is really minor, is that the "AERO" text on the side of the card isn't backlit; only the MSI logo is lit. Would have been nice for MSI to follow suit of other manufacturers and lit all the edge writing on the card.
Went for a blower card as I knew I'd be using it in pretty small cases. I think this was the right call, but it is a little hot and noisy under load. Doesn't thermal throttle, but when the fan spins up to high revs it's an audible buzz. I've also noticed a little coil whine - not particularly loud or annoying though. I think it's only started since I switched to the SF450 PSU as I never noticed it when using a RM450 in my previous case.
Performance wise it's great. More than enough horsepower for the resolution I game at (2560x1080). And I like the look of it too - not too gaudy.
