Card dying twice
Pros: Card runs well when it wants to
Cons: Have had to return card twice now due to the same issue. When computer reboots, fans will run at idle until ANY other program has been run. As soon as anything else runs, fans will eventually rev up like a jet engine and never go back to idle speed. Fans do not react to MSI Afterburner nor any other hardware monitoring program. If left running high intensity programs (Ex.: Mine happened during Valheim and FFXIV on high settings) the graphics card will eventually shut off - This requires a full reboot of the system to get it running again. Second crash happened outside of RMA for Newegg, so now will have to reach out to Gigabyte support and likely wait for a replacement.
Overall Review: If the card worked as advertised, it would be a great card. Having to return it twice is not a great track record however, and given the reviews I've seen, this is not an uncommon problem when it comes to this card.
