Hands down the best GPU Ive ever owned, just one complaint
Pros: First a HUGE THANK YOU Newegg, I won this card on your shuffle which made my year! Coming up from a GTX1080 ti, the difference is phenomenal. I can play every game I have maxed out with HDR and get over 70fps @ 5120x1440 on my Odyssey G9 monitor! Love the front light bar, goes great with my LED ram! Runs very cool at full load but
Cons: Plug and play stock temps run in the upper 80s at full load. Thats uncomfortable for me since longevity is my goal. I had to download MSI Afterburner and adjust the fan curve so now it barely hits 70c with only running around half the fan speed capability. My 2nd rig is water cooled and my Sli GTX 1070 GPU temps never see 60c and theyve been running almost 24/7 since I bought them soon after they launched. Builders make sure you have room for this card! Its big and heavy (I used the included brace to make sure it didnt put pressure on the PCIE slot). It also takes up 3 slots, I tried to run a second card but the fans couldnt pull enough air to stay cool
Overall Review: As the title stated, hands down the best GPU Ive ever owned! I would have given 4 1/2 stars if I could, definitely 5 star plus running MSI Afterburner. Cant thank you enough Newegg, Ive been buying parts from you since the mid 90s and your service has always been and remains the best in the business!
