Almost full marks for this awesome card! The price pulls down a star.
They changed me from a 970 Strix. However, was very pleased with the 970 card, but changed thanks to a good deal and Reflections on 970: The Ins memory management.
Had Gigabyte 980 gaming at home at the same time, but was not as impressed with it.
The slightly higher clock nobody did that the card was both warmer and louder. Run mini-ITX chassis and cooling can not be compared with a larger chassis of course. Even tried to clock up strixen to the same speed and noted that the temperature still kept lower with smaller and barely audible breezy. (Although tests showed different) Very neat and well built short otherwise. Someone cm longer than Strix but very less. Small size compared side by side.
Can recommend those with tight mini-ITX chassis that does not tunnel vision and high factory clock tions, when it is still so easy to watch the cards manually. Then you can have a quiet and cool briefly, then clock up and put up with a little higher fan noise when needed.
Besides the price and size of the card for some chassis so I see no weaknesses in this card.
Quiet, cool, stylish design, backplate and very fast!
