4 out of 5 eggs I meant lifetime warranty to 3 year's if you register after 30 day's 03/17/2016

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR 6GB SC+ GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card

Pros: It seems new egg erased my post?The card is fast it is great ,It runs 4k in sli with 30 plus FPS on ultra.And i dont mean turn this down and this in the middle,no;I mean ultra!.

Cons: DO NOT WAIT TO REGISTER YOUR WARRANTY!EVGA HAVE A TRICK IN PLACE.You buy the card with the thought of warranty for life and if you register after 30 days they turn that lifetime warranty to 3 year's!!??.Also i bought two of these cards and i am stuck with an extra game.I asked new egg to make it right and they handed me a gift6 card and said see you later?!the gift card doesnt even cover a new game.I am tired of this as last year i bought two gtx970 and that came with two of the same games as well?there should be something in place for people who run sli to be able to choose the second game.I feel sorry for the folk's who buy 3 or four card's.But two con's if you buy two card's one is they get you on the warranty and two,they give you the same games.If they gave me a phisical copy i could sell it or something.

Other Thoughts: I have spent almost Ten Thousand Dollars on this site in the past four year's and i feel i should be treated better when i have a small problem like this.Unfortunate they make a big one.I would be happy is they would compensate me for two 65 dollar games in the whitcher 3 and rise of the tomb raider.I wonder what tiger direct is like when you spend thousand's upon thousands of dollars with them?

3 out of 5 eggs Three egs for power two less for awefull fan noise and heat. 02/09/2015

This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2972-KR 4GB GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: I have two of them running in sli.They are very durable and strong cards for 7 hundred bucks for the two of them i like the power i jhave.If you want 1080p gaming on ultra these are very affordable and they do not draw a whole lot of power to run.

Cons: This thing is loud!!! It has a awe full whining sound and they run warm very arm around 70 plus c when gaming on ultra.Mt gtx780ti was the steel cover one evga and it was way more quite.And a gtx780ti runs way more power and is a 384 bit card and it is a lot quieter??This card is louder than the gtx480! do you remember how loud and hot the gtx480's were? they were loud and hot as all hell i dont understand how this card is so loud and hot for such a low power draw and soposedly state of the art fan setup's.

Other Thoughts: I want to return these and just pay the extra 20 bucks to get the traditional setup cards with one fan because even my gtx680 isn't as loud as these?I only got both of these cards because the fans brag and boast being abler to last 400 times longer.Yeah so 400 times longer fan life but they cool terribly, and are extremely loud.And yes i know i can set the fans to run at a lower speed,but i don't like my cards to be frying eggs hot.Also it's not good for the rest of the setup,cpu,ram,etc. My setup is a gtx970 sli,CPU is Intel 4770,adata 16 gigs 1600 ram,zalman cpu cooler,cooler master mid tower the 70 dollar one.and four 120mm fans for tower cooling.Oh and a msi g45 gaming z87 motherboard.

Pros: When it doesn't blue screen and make a buzzing sound then go blue screen it works great and fast :)

Cons: OK,so i have read some of the reviews and it is obvious we are all having the same problem with blue screen of death.I have installed Operating Sytem at least 7 times and it works for a while then it blue screens i have even tried another drive to make sure it wasnt the motherboard i have (msiG45 gamingchipset z87).This drive is flawed it really scared me as i spent over two thousand dollars in febuary this year building this gaming rig.So it upsets me that the hard drive doesnt work right?To all you people having trouble with this drive i feel your pain,Quality control should have not let our drives out of the factory!!!
