GIGABYTE GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Beautiful card. Runs most games very well with no issues. Runs cool, fast, and is not power hungry! It also overclocks very well with little to no voltage increase.
Coming from a R9 290, performance is comparably better, all the while keeping temps below 62C. Benchmarking and gaming, temps never exceed 61C. The card is also very quiet!! I had a Tri-X R9 290, you had 2 choices, run it hot or run it loud.. When running Far Cry 4 the R9 290 got pretty hot AND loud and ran less FPS than this GTX 970 does. I'd say on average the 970 runs an extra 20fps. This GTX 970, I have no idea if the fans are even running.
I know that coil whine is an issue with some people, and while I have heard the coil whine, I have not had any issue with this being an often occurrence. It's only happened a hand full of times, but was not loud at all, at least for myself. It's only happened on Far Cry 4 intro scenes, so far.

Card looks great too, the WINDFORCE LED is a nice touch, as well as the back plate. Makes me feel like the card is more rigid.

Cons: Gigantic card, but when I compared the Tri-X 290 and this G1 its practically the same size, despite the G1 being .28" longer. I couldn't even tell. I have like 1cm between the card and the hard drive bays, but I already knew it would fit just fine.

Other Thoughts: I'm extremely happy with this G1 Gaming GTX 970. Only time will tell if it lasts.

Pros: Had no problem using XMP profiles to run at 2133mhz. Currently, its running at 2187mhz with my BCLK overclocked to 102.5mhz.

It ran Prime95 for over 13hours stable. Made no adjustment to voltage settings.

Cons: No real complaints at this time.

Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i53470
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Got this thing running with a CM Hyper 212 Evo cooler, and max temps on Prime95 running for over 13hours hit 65 degrees C. Currently overclocked to 4.1ghz. Adjusted my BCLK to achieve that. So far, runs very well.

Cons: Non-K, but already knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: Mated to an ASRock Z77 Extreme4. over 13hours on Prime95 stable at 4.1GHZ on a single core and 3.9GHZ on all 4 cores.
