GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Insane boost clock - gets up to 2050 out of the box with the Gigabyte software in OC mode
-Quiet - I don't hear a peep through my case
-Cool - Hasn't gotten above 65 degrees C (1080p resolution mainly Fallout 4 in OC mode, and also during Firestrike)
-Performance is out of this world. I am bottlenecked by my CPU right now but even so, it is 3x faster than my GTX 570 that was in it, and without the bottleneck it stands to be about 6x faster.
-VR Ready. Even with my FX-6100 processor I meet the minimum VR requirements on Firestrike.
-Simple switch between Normal, Gaming, and OC modes.

Cons: -Software does not work properly - I can set the 3 different modes with it (which is the most useful part) but I am unable to manage the LEDs with it. They have released an update but it will not install properly.
-Fan encasing feels like cheap plastic.

Other Thoughts: I was going to mark it down to 4 eggs because the software is so bad but I couldn't because I am willing to chalk it up to my old hardware - a 970 chipset MoBo.

And, comparing it to the clocks of the other available 1070s out there now, there is no way this shouldn't be a 5 egg card.

Without question - get it if you are looking for a 1070 and can manage to find it in stock.


Pros: -Plenty of space for HDD
-Screwless 3.5 and 2.5 mounts
-Plenty of spots for fans
-Decent cable management options (nothing fancy, but enough to work with)
-Able to pop out 4 of the HDD slots to open up room for a beastly graphics card
-Front cover is a snap to come off

Cons: -If you pop out the HDD enclosures you lose 66% of the HDD bays
-No side window

Other Thoughts: I bought this 2-4 years ago (I don't exactly remember), and in that time this case still has all the things you would want a mid-ATX case to come with. Cooler Master lived up to it's name on this one - with so many different options for fans. Someone mentioned that this would not be a good case for water cooling but I would have to disagree. I do not use a water cooling system but it seems to have adequate space and it even has ports on the back to feed tubes through.

TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32 bit & 64 bit)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Maintains promised speeds. Never drops a signal.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It does exactly what you would expect it to after 1.5 years. Great adapter.
