Pros: 1. Cheapest 970 when i bought, ~ $290
2. Performs well
3. comes with a free backplate and a game.
4. EVGA big brand.
Cons: 1. Coil whine around heavy load.
2. Default fan curve is ineffective, the fan kicks on low around 60C, and really starts cooling after 80C. Biggest concern so far. Downloaded afterburner, control fan curve via software.
Other Thoughts: My previous EVGA 660 fan curve can be modified permanently via software. I haven't had any luck with this 970 yet, but still trying.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy install, works.
Cons: LAN connection with CAT6 is very slow. File transfer rate and remote sessions within LAN are slower than a 4 year old router from D-Link DIR 655. Wifi 2.4Ghz latency spikes, 5Ghz network is even slower.
Other Thoughts: should've bought something elseREAD FULL REVIEW

Other Thoughts: tried: upgrading bios, re-installing os. enabling UEFI, converting to MBR or GPT, tried a variety of things with it. no luck at all.
Good thing is i am good at diskpart now.
