This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Edition, ZT-P10700C-10P, 8GB GDDR5 IceStorm Cooling, Metal Wraparound Carbon ExoArmor exterior, Ultra-wide 100mm Fans, Spectra Lighting, PowerBoost, FREEZE fan stop
Pros: Out of the Box you're looking at ~1974 core speed.
Temps. No cooler issues here. Have not seen GPU temp exceed 76, usually around 73
Sustainable 24/7 mem o/c of ~9,200
Compared to my Asus 290X, much less power and no more room heater!
I got this card to max 1080p. 4X/16X everything Ultra+ w/min frames above 60fps. This card does that out of the box.
Cons: 24/7 stable, my card only sustains an o/c of 2012. Max sustainable o/c bump of 38 on the core? Weaksauce.
Other Thoughts: Back plate might be carbon fiber? Card is roughly same size as my Asus DCII 290X but somehow lighter?
Using GPU-Z .0.8.9 my avg power consumption is 80% and max has not exceeded 94%?? Not sure what to take from that....
Fans truly seem to operate independently.
Nice LED colors if you're into that.

This review is from: Changhong 40" Class 1080p LED HDTV - LED40YD1100UA
Pros: Ok I'm going to copy another reviewer here because he hit all the notes:
sturdy glass stand
good on-screen controls
clicky/responsive controller (yup)
very loud speakers (wow! Yes, surprised again)
attractive appearance (surprised, doesn't look/feel cheap)
lots of inputs
picture fills the entire screen. On some channels, light letterboxing top/bottom but not on the sides.
Cons: I don't think you can wall mount it. The "pole" for the stand is already attached. All I had to do was attach the flat bottom.
Other Thoughts: VERY WELL PACKAGED. Thing came to my door not just in the box, but with corner pieces and straps. Impressed.
I mean if this was $350 okay I'd give it 4 stars, but for the current price (and the BF sale price I snagged it at) it's a sold 5 star unit.
Pros: A work of art and a thing of beauty. Custom design and it shows. Backplate
Cons: As with all 290X cards, overclocking can cause issues. I bumped up the memory and core and experienced the "black screen" issue. Went back to stock clocks and the issue hasn't repeated and it's been a few months.
Other Thoughts: Look we've been spoiled by massive overclocks... thing is, the 290X just can't do that out of the box. Run the card at reference specs and enjoy without headache. I mean, these cards were $600+ not six months ago....READ FULL REVIEW
