WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System

WINDFORCE 3X cooling system is equipped with high performance pure cooper heat-pipes which direct touch the GPU can strengthen the speed of heat dissipation. Besides, the air flow is effectively enhanced by the unique blade fan design, this not only increases the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence, it also results in a lower noise level.


Ultra Durable VGA™


Lower GPU Temperature
The Ultra Durable VGA board provides a dramatic cooling effect, lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the copper inner layer of PCB.

Better Overclocking Capability
Durable VGA board reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient states, thus effectively lowering noise and ensuring higher overclocking capability.

Decrease Power Switching Loss
This VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency.

Decent Card 4/6/2020 8:04:48 AM

Pros: Quite - I haven't had much problem with noise on this card.
Reliable - able to play almost any game I have ever thrown at it

Cons: Price is way to high for what you get now a days
Does stutter at points.

Overall Review: I have had this card for a few years now. It has done very well and gets the job done. I cannot say anything that bad about it, it does its job and has the ability to play most games at medium to high with no problems at all at 1080p. But the big price tag they slapped on this baby cannot be justified over modern cards. Would not recommend buying this unless you find one refurbished or used for a really great price.

Served me well 7/30/2019 6:14:22 AM

Overall Review: It was a great GPU for the price and the 2015 era. It will still get you great 1080p performance on most modern titles and it the minimum requirement for the Vive VR setup.

Decent Product 10/9/2018 7:49:06 PM

Pros: Fast card still holds up with most Titles. Can do 4k but with medium to low settings.

Cons: Cooler is starting to fail, I've had the card for just less than three years and all but one fan is still functional. Surprisingly It still runs at functional temperatures.

Replacing the fan system on this thing wont be bad on the wallet. But I'd say I've got my worth out of it this far.

Not the best GTX 970. But gets the job done. 6/6/2017 10:52:11 PM

Pros: It looks cool. It's a GTX 970. (Barely) doesn't throttle

Cons: Runs hotter than let's say, EVGA SC variant. Replaced thermal paste twice, reaches about 80C with 60% fan speed. Fan speed above 60% is pretty loud. "Kinda" stupid cooler construction, similar to Asus Direct CU - direct;y touches heatpipes. There's a gap between every of the 4 tiny heat pipes. "Kinda" fixes the problem when I put a lot of paste between the gaps.

Significantly lags in games after 3.5GB of vram usage - like every other GTX 970.


Overall Review: If you buy it used for a great price I would still go for it.

Great card, runs well. 4/8/2017 11:21:49 PM

Pros: Good cheap upgrade to enter the next gen gaming scene
Great bang for your buck - easily maxes plenty of games while I run 3 monitors and a few web browsers in the background
Good cooling

Cons: One of my fans began making a horrible noise so I took a look and the right most fan just fell straight out. Extremely disappointed by this.
Very loud, but, it's what you sign up for by buying a "Windforce" card. Sort of sounds like a busy highway when you take off your side panel.

Overall Review: I'd definitely recommend this card to anyone. Was skeptical when buying from Gigabyte, but I've been happy with the cards performance. I build levels and edit high fidelity videos and play a ton of games, and this does the job. I will be buying a 1080ti purely for the fact that rendering levels and such needs more power.

That said, I'm extremely happy with this card, and I'll definitely be keeping it for a long time.

Works okay, but fans squeak very loudly 1/20/2017 2:46:15 PM

Pros: - pretty cool for gaming
- super fast super awesome graphics

Cons: - the fans squeak very loudly, like fingernails on the blackboard.

Overall Review: I recommend spending just a little more money on one that doesn't have squeaky fans.

Worked well for about a year 1/3/2017 10:14:09 AM

Pros: This card worked decently for the first year. I was a little disappointed to find out about the false specs on the 970 cards. I am still waiting for the $30 from the class action lawsuit.

Cons: Around the 1 year mark this card started having issues. The card started making a very annoying noise and performance dropped off. Any games I play make this annoying noise more audible and I am getting screen freezes more and more often. This card seems fine when I am not putting it under any stress. However, when I play any games after a certain amount of time the screen will freeze and I will have to reboot. I am very disappointed with this card as my last Nvidia card is still around and working after about five years.
