Reviews around system (5.00 of 5)

  • and it's pay $100 for ship first, or pay $100 for a new cooling system
  • On top of that I upgraded my Motherboard, RAM, and cooling system.
  • the new ICX cooling system work very well and it quiet !
  • Cooling system works very well, and in my opinion, doesn't even get that loud under heavy load
  • The 1070 itself is great, but when you combine it with EVGA's amazing ACX cooling system, it becomes even better

Reviews around customer support (5.00 of 5)

  • This is a one star review because of how disappointing EVGA's customer support was, and how blatantly they abandoned their early customers with the FTW2 announcement
  • I tried Nvidia, EVGA, and Amazon customer support to get a free game code, and no luck :-(
  • But after experiencing how difficult EVGA customer support is and how unwilling they are to take responsibility for their mistakes, I returned my EVGA card and bought an ASUS card instead
  • I love EVGA products, and their Customer Support is great
  • EVGA's customer support told me to get a new one, but this one is so sold out everywhere

  • love the build quality and the lighting :) - works like a charm.
  • I'm loving it!No complaints as of yet
  • Card is nice and high quality, but not a good upgrade from any GTX 980 or better.
  • I didn't think it would make a difference over clocking it on my 8350 but the quality of the games that I tried proved me wrong

Reviews around gpu (4.23 of 5)

  • I overclocked it to get a wee bit more performance out of GPU dragging games like Alien:Isolation and Crysis 3, and it overclocked ok
  • I put the quotes because my machine keeps rebooting due to overheating GPU
  • If you are into high-end PC gaming, then this GPU is great for the price point
  • 10/0 would buy again an FTW (or higher segment EVGA GPU).
  • Those who have heard about the overheating GPU's with the ACX 3.0 on the 1070FTW as well as the 1080FTW know that NOT

Reviews around product (4.17 of 5)

  • EVGA has a fantastic product here if they could just catch that coil whine in QC.
  • Why do you need to enter lots of personal information for software that comes with such an expensive product
  • Shame on Amazon and shame on EVGA for not clearing the channel of defective product!
  • Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this product to my friends
  • Excellent product, a bit expensive but excellent nevertheless.

Reviews around upgrade (4.16 of 5)

  • I'm loving it!No complaints as of yet
  • Upgraded from a 670 to this was an insane upgrade, especially with the 1440p 144hz monitor I'm using with it
  • Solid performance and a huge upgrade from 700 series like I had been using
  • I upgraded from the EVGA 970 SSC and it's such a good upgrade, feels like a BIG jump difference!

Reviews around thing (3.83 of 5)

  • This thing has had no issues even with a moderate overclock.
  • I must say the backplate does look nice, and its a good thing nvidia started including them on more mid tier cards.
  • A sad thing is that the card is outside of the USA and I have to pay for the shipping (to USA) and take care that the card will be in USA within 30 days return period
  • Best thing I've ever chosen to buy for my computer ever
  • I only have a 1080p screen, so this thing was kinda overkill

Reviews around price (3.80 of 5)

  • Now I understand fully custom water loops are often more reliable (at a hefty price) and offer better cooling capacity, but for my needs, I figured AIO units were perfect for my goals
  • This card stuck out to be the best price to performance ratio
  • PRICE.All around its an amazing card for a respectable price
  • I would recommend to anyone who needs the upgrade, great card at an affordable price, but you may want to verify that the one you buy has the new installed thermal pads to reduce the risk of it catching on fire.
  • I picked this up at Fry's for Amazon's price right after my old GTX 970 FTW burned itself.

Reviews around evga (3.25 of 5)

  • EVGA claims this card is very quiet and efficient, which they accomplish by setting the card's fans to not kick in until the card
  • This is a great card and generally evga has a great reputation
  • The BIGGEST problem with this card that I don't see many people talking about is that EVGA (like many other manufactures) switched from using Samsung memory to Micron memory
  • I don't blame EVGA for receiving another defective card
  • When I called newegg they said that EVGA are the ones that would refund me and they refused a refund

Reviews around fan noise (2.28 of 5)

  • If you want to do 4k all the time get a GTX 1080 TI, or even a 1080, as the fan noise will bug you late at night
  • The fans are quiet, even with the BIOS update I did not notice any difference in the fan noise.
  • RMA 2 swapped the thermal pad and vbios updated card from RMA 1 due to a loud clicking noise that exceeded the noise level of the fans as fast as I've seen them go (about 30-40%)RMA 3, if approved, will be the same as RMA 2 since the new card has an identical, though slightly quieter noise issue
  • Absolutely amazing!I recently upgraded components in an older desktop to meet the requirements of new games
  • Amazon is as great as always, still doesn't take back the frustration and time wasted

  • Amazon is as great as always, still doesn't take back the frustration and time wasted
  • I didn't know about the design flaw at the time and thought it was just a lemon
  • Then I see online how there are design flaws in the FTW cards, and how these issues are addressed in their up and coming FTW2 models
  • RMA 2 swapped the thermal pad and vbios updated card from RMA 1 due to a loud clicking noise that exceeded the noise level of the fans as fast as I've seen them go (about 30-40%)RMA 3, if approved, will be the same as RMA 2 since the new card has an identical, though slightly quieter noise issue

Reviews around star (2.12 of 5)

  • Amazon is as great as always, still doesn't take back the frustration and time wasted
  • Lost a star for the idiot who gave a white card that kind of warranty...and for the pay first to ship first where a dusty white card may get rejected ANYWAYS and you lose the money flat out
  • Because of that, I'm bumping up 2 more stars and now recommending it to my friends & family
  • Because of that, I'm bumping up 2 more stars and now recommending it to my friends & family

Reviews around boy (1.00 of 5)

  • Unfortunately, was not able to complete a full year of fun with this bad-boy
  • With the newest generation of games finally proving to be too much for my overclocked GTX 660Ti, I decided to pick this bad boy up
  • Four of any graphics card will test your PSU.I think you have a video card that can support games for the next five years with this bad boy.
  • Swapped out a GTX 970 OTC 2.0 for this bad boy from a new build back in September
  • Got this bad boy for $439.99 which is what the SC card normally goes for
