3 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the price, when it works

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: Low price ($244 new from other vendor)
Nice form factor

Cons: Back fan died in under a week
Sometimes glitches pc out when trying to wake up from sleep (might be a power setting)
I get some stutter every now and then (again, might be settings)

Other Thoughts: When back fan died, I contacted Zotac via email and got no response. Contacted my vendor (not newegg) and they replaced it no problem.

2 out of 5 eggsGood card, not so good support.

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: + Card worked flawlessly for the first five months. No issues at all.
+ Runs quiet
+ Good performance for $ as of 11/15.

Cons: + Card failed on me HARD after five months. My monitor went black, I heard the fan kick on full blast and that was it. I was running everything stock, no tweaking or overclocking.

+ Warranty support is less than ideal. I started the process of trying to get my card replaced a week ago and so far all I've gotten back from them is automated responses. I eventually had to reach out to a different customer support email just to get a ticket number for my RMA. This ticket number was emailed to me with the assurance that their RMA team would contact me within 2 business days. 48 hours later, nothing. I don't even have an address for where to send my card.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have done more research about their warranty/RMA service before I bought this card, but I was seduced by the price.

2 out of 5 eggsSave your money

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: Small form factor. Easy install. Quiet

Cons: Display port failed after a few months. Had to fight with tech support about testing and replacing it. It took nearly a month to replace and the replacement lasted 3 months before it died. I bought another card to replace it.

Other Thoughts: No way would I recommend this card. I can't honestly recommend it because both cards died after owning both a total of about 11 months.

1 out of 5 eggsThe card is fast and worked well... until..

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: Good video, fast, worked well.

Cons: The fan bearing wore out on one of the cooling fans within 90 days. The manufacturer will not cross ship or advance replace this even if youre willing to provide a credit card like many other manufacturers will do. This means in the event of an issue you will be without a video card for up to 7 weeks.

3 out of 5 eggsRear fan died after 3 months

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: - One of the cheapest 970s you can get
- Compact design

Cons: - Rear fan died after 3 months of gaming use (ZOTAC did RMA with no hassle)
- Runs hot up to 75c with stock cooling under load (now considering aftermarket heatsink - extra $50)
- Quiet at low temps but gets noisy under load
- All this is without any overclocking

Other Thoughts: - If your case is large enough, get one with larger heatsink and better cooling

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Mr. G,

Thank you for your purchase of our GTX 970. We are glad your RMA process went smoothly.

75C is okay for the card under load as NVIDIA rates the GTX 970 max GPU temperature as 98C. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-970/specifications. Alternatively, you can download a fan control utility and set a custom fan curve to keep the temperature lower.

If you should have any further issues or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team again.

Sincerely,

ZOTAC

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: I upgraded to this from a 6950, and have no regrets. The first thing that I noticed when unboxing this card was the size and solid quality feel of the card. The metal shell is a nice touch, over the typical plastic found on most cards. My case is a small form factor Lian Li, and my old XFX barely fit. The increased airflow from swapping in this smaller card has lowered my CPU Temps a bit, even.

I used to be part of the OC crowd, but have since grown too lazy to bother. The factory OC seems just right, and the cooling is excellent. There is no coil whine and I only hear the fans over my case fans, just barely, if I am playing games with intense graphics rendering. FFXIV at max settings does not even give this card a workout, so it takes games like Dragon Age Inquisition to get the card warm enough to kick the fans up. No game that I've tested has dipped below 30fps at max settings. Most run at 60+ fps, which is a huge upgrade from my 6950.

If you are looking for a quality, quiet and cool 970, this card is a great choice, I highly recommend it. This is even better for those in the market for a small form factor card, since it is only 8". Zotac is related to Sapphire and has done a great job with this card.

Cons: For those who care to adjust the fans, afterburner is better than the firestorm software that comes with the card. This might not be the best GPU choice for overclocking enthusiasts, due to there being beefier options out there.

Other Thoughts: There is a Gigabyte ITX 970 is another smaller card that is probably worth comparing to the Zotac. I prefer the dual fan design, so that tipped my decision.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Pretty nice

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: Runs crysis 3, rise of the tomb raider, fallout 4 and some other triple a titles at about 60fps at high-ultra settings.
$300
came with a nice game

Cons: Drops frames every now and then but pretty rarely.
IT GETS TOOOOOAAAAAAAASTY. when playing the aforementioned AAA titles, the temps shoot up to 80 C.
fans are a bit loud above 50% but bearable

Other Thoughts: If you want a nice gpu, game and wear headphones, then get it.

4 out of 5 eggsItem works very well for gaming

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: Bought this at a great price and received a free game bundled with it as well. Replaced a Geforce 670 with this card and re-optimized to ultra settings on all games with no decrease in performance. Dual fans keep this fairly cool (Manually adjust fan speed using MSI Afterburner and it gets no higher than 80 at full gaming load)

Cons: Firestorm Application does not save fan settings even after updating the app to the latest version. Also gaming button in app did not work.
Since the install, I now have an issue with the screen blanking out after watching netflix or you tube for around an hour or so. Am adjusting windows features to see if they are the cause (windows 10), so far it has not been resolved.

Other Thoughts: I have bought Zotac cards in the past and been very pleased with their performance. I have also had one go out and used the rma process, which, once I got a manager involved, was quickly resolved.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for buck

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Pros: -Money. This card has serious bang for buck value. Flawlessly plays almost every game I throw at it with 60fps+ maxed @1080p with a few exceptions.
-Size. While not really a factor for me this card has serious appeal for people with smaller cases that still want to game big.
-Cool given its size. Some of the other reviews rip on it for being warm. Not only have I not experienced that at all it also is a smaller card. I've not have mine go hotter than 76° and the fan wasn't noticeably loud (I have a Fractal Design R5 windowed and game with open air headphones)

Cons: -Aesthetics. One I upgraded to a windowed case I found myself more and more wanted a cooler looking MSI model. I couldn't dock an egg for it though because that's a me thing. Definitely something to consider if you are planning on having a windowed case and could save a little more to have a color themed build.

Other Thoughts: I've purchased a few zotac products over the past 8 years and have never had an issue. I find them to be the value for the level hardware and would recommend them to anyone wanting the balance between performance and budget.
