GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card

Pros: I have had my Gigabyte 1070 since near the launch date. I had to watch like a hawk for this one to pop up for sale and got lucky one night. I was and still am a Zotac fan (last card was a 970) and was debating one of theirs but I knew Gigabyte was legit (my last 2 mobo's were Gigabyte brand) and decided to grab my first G1 Gaming GPU. Anyway, I have my 1070 paired with a 4790k and 16GB RAM. Great setup. I run "The Witcher 3" in 4k at 35fps on Ultra settings. It eats up anything at 1440p as well. I'd say the sweet spot for the 1070 is 1440p but she can do 4k well, just at a lower framerate. It stays cool with the fans off at around 30-35C and when I kick a game (like the Witcher 3) up to 4k I ramp the fans up to 70% and she never gets over 65C under full load. Ever. I did overclock it a bit and never had an issue. I honestly love this card and am very happy with my purchase.

Cons: Not a huge fan of the orange highlights on the cards body. Doesn't match my rigs colour layout but where it sets now you hardly see it.

Other Thoughts: Is it the "best" 1070 on the market? Maybe not...I dunno. I do know I feel like it was money well spent and will last me a long time to come. Definitely recommend it and would buy it all over again if I had the chance. Gigabyte keeps impressing me!


Pros: Bought my 4790k a couple of years ago now and have zero complaints. Stuck a 212 Evo (best air cooler out there for the price) air cooler on it and it stays nice and cool at around 30C idle and tops out at 65C or so when pegged. I game a lot and never had an issue with my CPU being any kind of bottleneck. I have it now paired with a G1 Gaming 1070 and they love working together. I play The Witcher 3 on Ultra at 4k. It's a site to behold. Stays stable at 30fps no matter what I do in the game (PS-you need to play Witcher 3 if you haven't yet). What little rendering I've done it's handled like a champ as well. I do stream from time to time and it runs both my monitors (did have 3, but one died) with all the streaming software, my video stream preview feed and multiple tabs of Chrome without any issue or slow down. I came directly over from an FX-8320 with an OC of 4.7 Mhz and the 4790k at stock clocks was night and day difference in most things. Especially in Arma and DayZ. The 8320 was a good chip for its price but sometimes its worth the extra money to get the better product. I love messing with computers and my interest is piqued at what AMD is coming out with soon but I have a feeling it will only slightly best my beloved 4790k. I see her and I together for many a more years of gaming bliss. Out of all the chips I've fiddled with and owned, the 4790k is by far my favorite.

Cons: One can always gripe about price, but it was worth the extra cash. Honest to good, no complaints.

Other Thoughts: If you have, or can get a good deal on an 1150 board, then this is the chip you want if it's in your budget. If you have more to spend or are starting off fresh and want/need an i7, then go ahead and get a 6700k. Or wait for what AMD is bringing Q1 of this year.

5 out of 5 eggs Never had a single issue and ran things very well the time I had it. 04/22/2016

This review is from: HIS IceQ X² Boost Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 H270XQM2G2M 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I bought this as an upgrade for an HD 7770. It was a good move on my part. Played all my games at at least "high" settings and stayed cool doing it. I have some benchmarks of it, but its been a year or so since I had it, so im not sure where they went. I sold it after a little over a year for a gtx 970. Wish I would have kept this little card for my spare rig.

Cons: It has zero defects and performed to expectations. No cons.

Other Thoughts: I stick with HIS brand for AMD GPU's. If I go back to an AMD GPU, it will be HIS brand again. They have always done me right.
