A RTX 2070 KILLER! In raw performance

GIGABYTE AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R57XTAORUS-8GD rev. 2.0
GIGABYTE AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R57XTAORUS-8GD rev. 2.0

Pros: Will built card and plenty of cooling head room! Setting the fan speed fix @ 60% keeps this card cool under load while gaming around with temps @ 62c using the switch setting on the card in (BIOS OC). best bang for the buck high FPS game play on 1080p and 1440p

Cons: If you are wanting a Ray Tracing card this is not the card to get.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend This RX 5700xt to anyone looking for "RAW" performance. If your looking for the most "FPS" without having to brake the bank then this is the card to get. As to why I say this card is a RTX 2070 killer is because I own both cards and have tested both using the same system and I have the numbers to back the claim. Without having to manually overclock these test are straight out of the box raw numbers! System build. MOBO is gigabyte aorus B550 elite CPU is AMD Ryzen 9 3900x RAM is Geil EVO potenxza AMD 32GB @ 3600 time 18-22-22-42 Graphics card gigabyte aorus RX 5700xt and a RTX 2070 Using Benchmarks 3Dmark Time Spy, Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme (I will let you be the judge) So I hope this helps anyone out

Pros: This is not a very big graphics card Real world temperatures where around 72c and not adjusting any fan curve

Cons: As with most on this card the fan noise but only showed up at fan speeds above 94%. This issue was not the fans themselves it really was the fan shroud vibrating from imbalanced fans 

Overall Review: I bought this RTX 2070 in May 27 2020. To replace my older GTX 770. This was a big improvement It is now November 11 and I ended up having to send this card in to gigabyte RMA. The issue I was having is the 2070 card was not being used with DirectX12 GPU was sitting at 0% usage while my CPU 3900X is sitting at 100% with any AAA games using DirectX12 little odd. Because when I first got the card I didn’t have this issue at all. So I reinstalled the RTX 2070 back into my older system that has CPU 3770K and the results were the same. But on either system running games using DirectX11 or lower then I gained back GPU usage. So long story short still waiting on Gigabyte.....

Fun small-mid case

Pros: Simplicity. Does allow a front mounted hose down 280mm AiO config.

Cons: Would have liked to have seen a mesh front cover instead of just the holes on the right side of case and bottom

Overall Review: All in all case has nice cable management Plenty a room to build in for a smaller mid case

Pros: Very good case for the money. Love the color black with blue LED fans nice touch. Plenty of room to grow in side. Good air flow CPU stays at 40c pretty good for not having a CPU cooler.

Cons: Could of had a little better cable management but that could be partly from the power supplie as well. Had a little trouble with the audio jack when plugging in the headset for the first time

Overall Review: could of came with 5 fans instead of 4 fans its all good
