5 out of 5 eggsSLI Follow Up

Pros: This is a follow up review to my first post, containing the SLI results for these cards. For a detailed list of pros, please refer to my first post. I will mention, though, that the second card I installed has a default voltage of .950, which is higher than the first card, but still much lower than the average for the GTX 470 series.

Cons: These cards need airflow - badly. When I had them right on top of each other in worst case scenario SLI, the top card shot into the 90's C immediately after initiating Furmark at stock clocks. The fans are very impressive in their ability to cool, but you must have at LEAST one full expansion slot between the two cards. Without this extra slot of space, expect your cards to run even warmer than the stock GTX 470's.
Also, I feel that I should mention that, while in SLI, the card plugged into your monitor will run 10 - 15 C hotter than the bottom one under full load, even with the previously mentioned space. I have two full expansion slots between them in a Cooler Master Storm Sniper case, and still witnessed this issue. This prevented me from going above 800mhz core and 2,000 memory while in SLI.

Other Thoughts: The second problem mentioned in the cons section is an issue with SLI in general, and not with the cards themselves, so don't let it deter you from purchasing these. They are great cards, and come highly recommended. If you cannot put at least that one expansion slot between the cards, though, then that extra 10 - 15 C of heat will prevent you from overclocking, and so I felt it should be mentioned.

My System:
i7 930 @ 4.0ghz
2x of these in SLI @ 800 core, 2000 memory
6GB RAM @ 1600mhz (7-8-7-18)
46" Sony NX810 3D LED

Here are the SLI results, but please refer to my last post for specific settings.

Dawn of War 2:
Min. 8 Avg. 93 Max. 190

Just Cause 2:
Dark Tower - 75.2
Concrete Jungle - 50

To the reviewer who gave only 1 egg for a DOA card, please update your review after you receive a working model (if you do). Otherwise the egg ratings will not reflect the positive aspects of your new graphics card, which I believe would be unfair to such an impressive produ

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: There's a lot of great things to say about this card. Due to Gigabyte's custom PCB and fan combo, it draws less power, and produces less heat, despite being slightly overclocked. At stock, it uses only .937 mV (compared to my EVGA GTX 470's 950 mV), idles in the high 30's C, and levels off at 81 C in Furmark after running for several minutes. With the stock settings, it remains completely silent, even in Furmark.
Overclocking with Afterburner was incredibly easy. Mine stopped at 850 core, 2000 memory at 1.050 mV. Even while overclocked, it idles at 41 or 42 C (because of automatic downclocking while in idle), but it reaches 90 C in Furmark after about 1.5 minutes. After running Heaven and 3DMark 11, I got it up to 87 C, but I have yet to see it above that. It has 8 pin and 6 pin plugs (compared to 6 + 6 on standard 470's) for additional power if you're daring enough to flash over the bios to the GTX 480's.

Cons: Anything above 40% (the automatic speed) is pretty noticeable in terms of sound. I expected it to be a bit quieter in those settings, but really, if you leave it on auto, it will stay completely silent (unless you overclock above the 700 core mark). Also, the card is about an inch longer than the standard GTX 470, making it closer in size to the GTX 200 series (if I'm remembering correctly, anyway).

Other Thoughts: The card is great all around, and soon I will write another review showing how it does in worst case scenario SLI, when the cards are right on top of each other, leaving no airflow for the top one. For now, though, I will post a few random benchmarks of this single card against a pair of stock EVGA GTX 470's in SLI:
