Pros: -Performance is great, noticeable gain over my EVGA GTX 760 SC
-Runs ALL of my games with every setting cranked up to the max at 1080p 60+ fps
-Temp never got higher than 68C in valley
Cons: -Coil whine: When I first loaded up a game my heart sank. My GPU was screeching like a frenzied chupacabra. I read around on the EVGA forums and saw that running a demanding benchmark for a few hours could diminish the coil whine. This actually worked pretty well and the noise was at about 25% of what it was before. However, it was still noticeable (barely, pretty much had to be listening for it). I then saw that using V-SYNC could help and, sure enough, with it on the coil whine disappears entirely.
Other Thoughts: It was a little frustrating at first, but I was able to work around the noise issues. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the card. Next time, however, I will probably wait a little longer and read more reviews before choosing a GPU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Always bought EVGA cards and I've always been Pleased.
Cons: The EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 version was not even available for several days after the 970s launched. This seems like it was a tactic to get rid of a lot of the old ACX 1.0 coolers.. At the expense of the consumers. I refused my package after I discovered this and I'll be purchasing the ACX 2.0 970 which should have been available in the first place! At the exact same price no less.
Other Thoughts: Won't be buying GPUs at launch in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
