5 out of 5 eggs OP!! Great Card! 04/10/2015

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB AMP! Extreme Core Edition

Pros: Great performance, Amazing value. The look of the card is with care. I like the fact that the base clock was the highest of all 970 I know about. Since the fans are locked in at 60% you would think it would be a loud card but its not. low noise and amazing temps. I'm coming from team red, I had two 7950 cf, which I loved, it was just time to upgrade. I'm not a fan boy so I'm not down talking no one, I just wanted to change it up I do this from time to time.

I game at 2560x1440, I can play bf4, fc4, and metro:ll with no issue. I don't play games at full ultra settings. I use mix settings from Ultra, med, and no AA and I can play all my games smooth! I will put out a video soon.

I like that I can overclock my monitor refresh rate from 60 to 110mhz without using CRU and atikmdag since it can be done with no problem in Nvidia control panel.

Cons: The coil whine sound can be heard like alot of others have be stating. You hear it, but its not a deal breaker unless you are going for a silent setup.

Other Thoughts: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2400

I would love to test this card in SLI. Maybe one day. I don't see many reviews of this card on youtube I will have to do one.

Thanks for reading.

ZOTAC If you see this, maybe you could send me one to test it in SLI mode. Thanks!
