Pros: An update to my previous review...
Have had the card for a week now it is incredible. No Coil Whine as others reported. Delivers super performance and I am totally happy.
Cons: What I now see is that the backplate is being offered for free not so long after I bought it. While I applaud EVGA and/or New Egg for giving people this excellent perk, I cannot help but feel I bought mine too soon.
Other Thoughts: For those thinking about buying this card...DO IT while the backplate is free! You will not regret it :-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9
Pros: Many folks complain that for the money the video card costs, the backplate should already be included. I do not disagree with that thought.
However, with the rebate from the card and the sale price for the backplate, it works out to basically free.
The plate went on with no problems, but be sure to have a small/micro sized Phillips head driver to work the screws.
Other Thoughts: It makes the card look even better and helps reduce the temperature - a win/win !READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quick and easy install, fantastic operation. This card is the best I have owned. Have been buying EVGA cards for years and they always deliver the performance. It is very easy to register the item and EGVA customer service is very responsive and helpful if you ever need them.
Cons: Not a con for EGVA or Newegg, but the UPS folks sure tested the shipping box's strength. I was worried about the card given the condition of the outer box, but all was safe and sound inside. A true testament of how well the Newegg folks pack their boxes.
Other Thoughts: I also bought the back plate for this card. With the rebate on the video card and the sale price, it worked out to basically free.READ FULL REVIEW
