MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, Cool, Mostly Quiet.

Cons: Slight coil whine that can only be heard in a quiet room.

Other Thoughts: Out of the Box this card boosted to the 980 default boost clock speed 1329MHz. With a slight overclock +115 GPU, +350 Memory, it boost to a stable 1460MHz. That a 300MHz and some change overclock. It's housed in a Fractal Node 304 case which sits in a media cabinet behind a closed glass door. I removed the back panel of the cabinet so that the system can exhaust out of the back. Even under those conditions I have not seen the GPU temp rise above 74C. It is connected to an Harman Kardon 7.1 Home Theater receiver. I can hear the coil whine while the card is under load but not enough to take an egg off for because you can't hear it if the sound is up. I only initially detected the coil whine because I had the case cover off and sound muted so that I could listen for fan noise from the card. This is a great card that you can't go wrong with.

GIGABYTE GV-N970WF3OC-4GD GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very Fast, Cool, No Whine!

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Ok, so this is the last I have to report. At the same OC settings Iast reported (110% power limit, +140 GPU Clock, +500 Memory Clock) Futuremark Firestrike gives a score of 10945. If you can't get a G1 Gaming card then you certainly can't go wrong with this OC version. It doesn't have the pretty back plate, which would be nice, but you really don't need it. Not with results like these.
