GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD (rev. 1.0/1.1) 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Picked one of these up open box at a local reseller and I couldn't be happier. It's whisper quiet, even under load. Under heaven benchmarks maxes at 70 degrees, very cool. I have tried 3 other brands and had mild coil whine, too big heat pipes for my case and lots of heat. This has no coil whine and is very cool.

Cons: Not a con for me but it's length 12.2" can be a con for many. I think that's why I got an open box. It was actually still in the static back unopened with protecting film in tact. Someone probably didn't check to see how long it was.

Other Thoughts: Excellent metal backplate. LED logo is blue, and controllable with NVIDIA LED Visualizer. I have no coil whine but I game at 60fps (though benchmarks up to 200fps also produced no whine) and I have a 80 Gold Certified 500W power supply in an ITX case. The G1 uses quality sorted GPUs which is also a plus. Sticks closer to the reference output design with 3 Display Port, 1 HDMI, and 2 DVI outputs.

Pros: Very good build quality. Carrying case for cables. Haven't had time to test noise and performance, but if it performs up to its build quality, it'll be fine. Great price as well.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggs Not just hot air! 12/23/2014

This review is from: NF-F12 iPPC-2000 PWM Fan with Focused Flow™ and SSO2 Bearing, Retail

Pros: Dark earthier color scheme much more pleasing to the eye. Very quiet, though not quite silent. You will most likely not hear it's whisper over your other fans or even typing. Excellent considering the amount of air it pushes. The build quality is superb. Replace my CPU cooler fan with this one in an ITX build and dropped my full load temp by a full 20 degrees. Under full load after 1 minute best I was over 100 degrees and thermal throttling. With the Noctua, under full load I max at 82 degrees.

Cons: Really none, but if I want to nit pick, it's very quiet but not truly silent. In a silent room, with my ear to the case I can hear it whisper when idle/daily computing. Under load of course you hear the air and the fan, but still not bad. For all itnents and purposes, under normal load, up to ~1000rpm, it's silent. With the amount of air it pushes, I have my fan control to stay at 800rpm or less until I get to 55 degress which just doesn't happen unless I'm load testing. If it'll fit in your case, instant upgrade to your cpu cooler.

Other Thoughts: With the improved air cooling performance I can now overclock my i7-4790K to 4.6Ghz topping at 97 degrees under full load, never reaching 100 or throttling with air cooking in a very tight ITX case. This is one brand that lives up to its rep.
