Pros: This is my second GTX x70 series card (upgraded from GTX 470). I personally think the x70 cards are the best value. You get most of the power of a x80, at a much more reasonable price.
The cooler design work much better than the reference design.
Cons: Though the cooler design works better than a reference design blower, it does vent the hot air back into the case. You must have good air ventilation in your case to remove this extra heat.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as advertised
No Problems so far!
Cons: The heat spreader makes the RAM stand a bit taller, but any normal case should still have lots of room.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Lots of features for a great price.
Comes with heat sinks pre-installed. Paired with Phenom x6 1045t overclocked to 3.4gzh @ stock voltage, 8gb 1333 DDR3, and GTX670.
The Bios works with keyboard and mouse!
Cons: The north and south bridges seem to get really hot, but no issues thus far.
Only 4+1 power phases. I personally would only overclock a 95w processor for sustained use. 125w overclock (i.e. FX-83xx) may push this board too far.
