Huge Graphic Card but not durable

Pros: It's definitely a powerful graphic card. I could play most of the games in maximum settings and a stable 60fps on 1080p. Made some tests on 1440p and most of the time it could handle the 60fps as well.

Cons: The product is not durable at all. First I had problems with the HDMI port, it stopped working. Later, the fan started to go crazy, even when I was not running anything at all. Lastly the card simply stopped working, I mean, it turns on but no image. I've never did anything to put it on risk, like OC, it simply not good at all.
Since it has 3 year warranty I am try to contact Gigabyte, but they are really slow, I hope they help me via RMA.

Other Thoughts: This is a good card, but I would not recommend it. Let's see if Gigabyte helps me, I could change my opinion.

Monster of a card.

Pros: Running at 1500 mhz on the core and 3780mhz on the memory by only adding 10mV. Pretty impressive at max 70C

Cons: None.

its a beast.

Pros: so far the only game i've tried it out with is far cry 4. set it to ultra. changed reso to UHD, and turned off AA and it played it just fine. im not sure what the FPS were because i dont have fraps installed, but it was perfectly playable. probably around 40 - 50 fps i would think.

this thing is very quiet, even under load. ive had it running Collatz@home and Milkyway@home, and under 95% GPU usage, its plenty quiet for my living room. fan speed 45% and temps around 67c. all stock settings.

Cons: the only problem ive come across is running collatz@home with OpenCL is making it bluescreen. it did not do this with my old amd. running collatz with cuda ran fine. it may not be the card. it may be the process. i dunno. im not even gonna bother deducting an egg for this.

i have encountered terrible coil whine with this card. most of the time its not there. usually just in game menus and such. but when its there, its pretty loud, especially in my quiet living room. i deducted 1 egg for this, along with the fact of the price of this card. its expensive. but its not surprising. you pay a premium to have what is currently pretty much the fastest single GPU card available right now.

UPDATE: the coil whine issue solved itself it seems. after some time (a short time, in fact, perhaps after a 'break in period' I was unaware of) the coil whine vanished entirely. I no longer have any complaints about this card, and am very happy with it. on a side note though: my buddy has an identical card, same revision, and his still has coil whine occasionally. not sure why. his system is otherwise completely different than my own and he has so many fans in the thing you'd never even realize the card is making noise over the tornado that's taking place. my experience however ahs been great, so i'm adjusting my review to 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: this thing is a monster. its large. and its heavy. it requires two (2) 8-Pin power connectors. the back plate on this thing isn't an issue for me in my itx case, but some with SLI setups might find this to be a tight fit if the cards are too close together.

My setup:
ASRock z97e-itx/ac motherboard
i5-4690k "devil's canyon" cpu @ 4.5 ghz
CoolerMaster Seidon 120m closed loop cooler
G.Skill 2x4gb DDR3 @ 2400
Samsung 850 Pro 256gb SSD
WD 3.5" 1tb Blue 7200RPM
Corsair HX650 80+ Gold modular PSU
CoolerMaster Elite 130 ITX case

Gigabyte Delivers Once Again

Pros: Crushes anything at 1080/1440 that you throw at it
Good looking cooler
Fantastic I/O with DVI-D, DVI-I HDMI and THREE (count them, THREE) Displayports.

Cons: Can't change the Windforce Logo Light Color
Takes more wattage than most other 980's but that's not the card's fault

Other Thoughts: Great card for the money.

Great Card

Pros: Very fast, easily overclockable beyond Gigabytes G1 overclock. Can push this baby to 1500MHZ easily and it runs relatively cool around 60C. Plenty of VRAM for 4K gaming, however I prefer to run this at 1080P and max my FPS with Ultra settings.

Cons: Fast enough for 60+fps ultra on most games up to 1440p, not quite 4k ready.

Other Thoughts: For the money, may be more worth it to spring for the 980 TI (better price/performance I.M.O.) or 2x 970s in SLI. I bought this guy when it came with Arkham Knight and Witcher 3, two games I was going to buy anyway so it essentially was a 380$ card for me. Now i'm picking up a second one to do SLI, 3x1080p monitors.

So Nice I had to purchase It Twice !

Pros: This Gigabyte Nvidia GPU has run everything I've thrown at it and handled it so well that I purchased a 2nd for SLI gaming. It does not disappoint, works better than advertised. Unbelievably crisp and vibrant graphical output while still keep its' "cool" The 3 Fan Windforce design is a definite plus and a most effective cooling solution.

Cons: The only non-negative thing I could say about this card is smell I caught wind of when "burning-in" the GPU. THIS IS NORMAL and should not scare you ! Once that card has had a good initial test-run, etc. the Card will odorless and quiet, as it normally should.

Other Thoughts: If you cannot get the 980Ti, for whatever your reason(s); you should consider picking up Gigabytes 980. As stated above, I started running my build with 1, and, eventually picked up a 2nd because of its' exceptional performance.
Note: All parts in my build were purchased from Newegg

P3D simmasta

Pros: Really struggled to get it going at first which was not helped by the Gigabyte tech support.
Got better support from NVIDIA after which really started to show what its made off.
Using this card on a couple of flight simulators and dang is this good.

Cons: Tech support is absolutely garbage.
