EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Looks good 07/30/2015

This review is from: EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9

Pros: Looks good, helps support the cards heft in your case. Acts as a heat sync. This top/heat sync really does work well. It helps draw the heat away from your card by a few degrees Celsius. Also acts as a support for the hefty card to keep it from warping over time.

Cons: Can create heat in your case by a few degrees Celsius. This heat sync works well as it draws the heat away from your card. However, be warned that it can cause your ambient case temp to rise a few degrees because of this. I have a mid tower case, so that may be my problem. Id imagine a larger case perhaps with a side fan would not be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Great card, decent price. Video cards are a tough one though. They come and go very quickly. This time next year this card will be available for about a hundred bucks! If you have to have it now and are a gamer, go for it. This card alone blows the 700 series cards out of the water, even in SLI.

EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Graphics Card

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decided to take the plunge and upgrade from my gtx 760 to the 970. WOW. Huge difference for gaming. If you are going to drop the coin, get one of these. IMO the EVGA cards are of better quality than original Nvidia. Also, in comparassion to MSI or ASUS, you can't go wrong with the EVGA version of this card.

Cons: This card is a bit warm. Even with it's good cooling system (which serves to cool itself, not your case) caused my overall internal average temperature to raise 1 to 2 degress Celsius. No big deal, but for some of the OCD overclockers out there, this may be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Great card, great performance, outstanding warranty with EVGA and as usual, decent price and fast shipping from Newegg.

BitFenix Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-P14025KK-RP 140mm PWM Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None, mine both arrived non working

Cons: Both fans arrived defective. One fan had a cracked blade, the 2nd fan had a grinding rattle in the motor. RMA'd both fans back to Newegg. Newegg is great with their RMA practice and offers no hassle returns. The fans themselves felt kind of flimsy and are made of a brittle plastic. In this price range, there are way better choices out there. I tried these fans based on the decent reviews here on Newegg. I must have received a bad batch. I can only give 1 star do to the fact they both arrived non functional.

Other Thoughts: The fans themselves felt cheap. The blades seem weak (obviously since one arrived cracked) and the case of the fan is made of cheap plastic. There is no girth or weight to these fans. The cables and connectors also seemed on the flimsy side. Again, I may have just had bad luck and got a bad batch, however, once around is enough for me. I RMA'd theses puppies and ordered a pair of better quality Noctua fans. If you need good fans, and you are already at this price point, save yourself the hassle and spend the 5 or 10 extra bucks and get top of the line. To me, it's not worth the hassle going back and forth worrying if you will get a good batch or not. I have had good luck the past few years with Noctua and Cougar fans. I'm sticking to what I know from now on.
