Quiet Powerhouse

GIGABYTE Gaming OC GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card GV-N3070GAMING OC-8GD (rev. 2.0) (LHR)
GIGABYTE Gaming OC GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card GV-N3070GAMING OC-8GD (rev. 2.0) (LHR)

Pros: Got it for only slightly more than NVIDIA MSRP for 3070 cards. It's very strong and quiet, running around 50℃ on average, and around 67℃ when running extreme stress tests and benchmarks. Can run just about everything at 1440p with 70+ FPS easy, even with ray-tracing and DLSS turned up to the highest settings. Cyberpunk and Dying Light 2 look like whole new games. Even when running benchmarks the fan is barely audible. Standard case fans are much, much louder. The small bit of RGB lettering is nice too, as it matches well with Corsair RGB and ARGB.

Cons: Cost was still higher than NVIDA MSRP for the same chip. Gigabyte is a great brand though with a solid reputation, and this is the Rev 2 card with improved cooling.

Overall Review: Overall the card looks very clean, and out performs anything any current gen game can throw at it.

Great Cooler

Pros: The RGB is easily adjustable and looks great. The cooler keeps my CPU (Intel Rocket Lake) around 33-38°C, even when running benchmarks.

Cons: The system was simple to install once you realize the bolt holes on the back plate are adjustable (they can slide up or down to fit most MBs).

Overall Review: Cold, quiet, and eye catching.

Clean, simple, quality

Pros: This case has slots for inserting all of the installation wires into that were designed in a very thoughtful way. It also allows you to properly display your components, and you can easily see any RBG lights you have installed through the smoky glass side. It has great airflow, and seems adjustable to fit most MBs, large and oversized graphics cards (30x series easily), and pretty much any size fan.

Overall Review: It feels very sturdy and well made, and was very thoughtfully designed to ensure maximum airflow and extremely clean cable management. Can still see RBG components clearly through the smoky side glass, as well as the wire mesh sides.
