Pros: -Despite what previous reviews said, my card did not arrive poorly packaged, and everything was 100% untouched.
-I downloaded Gigabytes OC Guru program and changed the light to red and switched it to OC mode and saw the card boosting to 1325-1375 right out of the box!
-The entire cooler is made of metal and feels EXTREMELY premium.
-After installation I fired up Witcher 3 and set everything to ultra-veryhigh and was achieving 120+ fps, absolute beast of a card! Same story for GTA V... This card just destroys.
-Cooling is top notch, seriously! This card runs ridiculously cool!
Cons: -The card is very long and weighs about 3.5-4lbs and is a recipe for sag, and immediately noticed it after putting it in my case. The good news is that it won't sag beyond a certain point. The PCB and cooler do exhibit a slight bend when seated but it is very subtle (I'm just being picky). Despite these issues, there very minor cons and really nothing to complain about.
Other Thoughts: When I saw the 980 Ti come out I immediately sold my 970 to get this card and was somewhat regretting my purchase after reading some of the first reviews here despite the positive feedback from well known reviewers. After receiving I was very relieved that I made the right decision, good job Gigabyte!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great Audio
Cons: No optical port for audio, not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: This board is beautiful. I used in in a red/black build and I'm really happy with the audio. I like the cpu temp numbers right on the board. With the money I had, there is no other board I would have gotten. If anything happens in the future I'll update the review because I've only owned it a month now. I'd recommended it highly though.READ FULL REVIEW
