Pros: -The windforce fans keep the card very cool
-Overclocks very highly
Cons: -Huge card, had to redo some of my cables
Overall Review: Only coil whines above 700 fps which is way better than my other 970 which whined at above 40fps.
Pros: The price per performance might be the best of all time.
Very low power consumption
Smaller card and fits better in smaller cases
Cons: Coil Whine like a banshee from hell
Jsut from the hassle this card caused ill take two eggs off
Overall Review: I did RMA the card once i heard the coil whine, but when it had it again i searched around and found a review on another site with someone claiming a "fix" it did work for me so i'll share it here.
This was posted by Jose Galvez on another popular website( the one with the same name as rainforest):
So after much research I found that the main reason for coil whine is that the graphics card is projecting a much higher FPS than it is meant to by displaying more FPS than the display. Somewhere in the 900's (I may not be correct in technicalities though) Anyway, if you get NVIDIA inspector, go to settings, and go to frame limiter it takes care of the whine. I have changed my rating from 3 to 5 stars. This card is great! I think the reason many people are displeased is the lack of knowledge as to how to fix the whine. The reason why I kept trying i because I have heard that EVGAs customer service is second to none. I will keep buying EVGA cards.
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do well.
Cons: Very loud, sounds like a train when it runs.
