    Not really 20% off. This card has been under $700 many times. Either way I've waited this long may as well see what happens when AMD release vega.

      All the AMD fanboys were telling me back in September to wait for Vega, glad I pulled the trigger on a 1070.

        How is that fanboyish? Usually an impending release is better no matter what you buy, thanks to competitive price cuts. Of course, as it turns out, Vega wasn't really impending, but anyway. No need to start up all that fanboy nonsense.

        Edit: oh I'm sorry, grr those damn nefarious AMD fanboys, they broke into my front yard and kicked my dog, shakes fist.

        Fanboys wars are dumb, and so are you if you support them.

        Well, I support AMD but even I could've told you to get a GTX 1070.
        'Tis a no brainer.

        The best thing about AMD now, is it allows people to toss away their i5-2500K and upgrade to RyZen r5-1600.
        The RX 470-580 offers great bang for buck, but Nvidia has the performance champ for now (2016-2018).

          is it allows people to toss away their i5-2500K and upgrade to RyZen r5-1600.

          That makes no sense if you play games.

        •  

          @Diji1:
          The 2500K is limited to 1600MHz DDR3 memory. Unless you have a high-end motherboard, and overclock it to 2100MHz with some interesting timings… which is the absolute max you can go.

          But switching NOW to the r5-1600 means you'll get the most bang for buck.
          You'll have 2 extra physical cores, 8 extra threads…. each running faster than the 2500k.
          Sure only some games are designed to scale with the faster processing and extra threads, but this is becoming the norm.
          Not to mention using high-bandwidth memory, which already makes a big impact in terms of current games.

          The M4 Motherboard standard is here to stay for a number of years.
          You can always upgrade from the r5-1600, to say-the r7-3700 in a number of years.

          The 2500k has lived a (2011-2017) long and great life. It reminds me of the days of AMD's Athlon 64 microarchitecture, beating Intel from 2002-2007. They won in the single-core department with the AMD 3200 against the Pentium 3 and Pentium 4. Then won in the dual-core department with the AMD X2 4400 against the Pentium Extreme Edition and the Pentium D. But it was time to move on when the new "Core" microarchitecture arrived, with the Core 2 Duo E6600 being faster and more efficient than AMD's processors. Intel's next major microarchitecture, the Core i3-5-7 Sandy Bridge, (2500k), was another massive leap and a nail in AMD's coffin. However this coffin was cremated and like a phoenix from the ashes, they have ryzen.

          Core i5 had its day, time to move on :'(

          @Kangal: AMD took too long with zen i ended up with a 6700k

          but ill wait for vega

          it was a big jump for me as i was on a AMD Phenom II X4 965

        you always gonna be waiting for something. At least your way you had a sweet video card for last 7 months or so.

      •  

        The way AMD are going Volta will probably be released before Vega! :P

        I just figured that Vega's release should push prices down for the whole GTX 10x0 range, but who knows. I'm using this time to get through some of my (older) steam backlog of games.

        FYI, I've only run NVIDIA cards over the last 10 years, and realistically will replace with another NVIDIA card. But i'm unlikely to go down the SLI path again… don't even get me started on SLI support!

        Have been on the nvidia bandwagon for a long time now, but im pretty excited for the vega cards and am waiting for their release to see how they do before i make my next build

    isnt this card loud ?

    • +5 votes

      Oh hell yes.

      First thing you will want to do is set a custom fan curve to fix its over heating. And then spend a couple hundred on some good noise cancelling headphones. Then a 3-5 hundred more and get a water cooling loop and gpu blocks for the card and finally get some quiet back into your life.

    I have this and i am saying don't buy this card, coz u will need to upgrade to liquid cool options, mine goes up to 94 celsius after every game I launched, and the fan went crazy.

    •  

      Sounds like a driver issue I had when I first got another Gigabyte GTX 1070 … once the fan went full speed if the fan turned on at all it was at full speed and it wouldn't slow down/turn off unless you uninstalled the device.

      That was fixed a long time ago though.

      •  

        I've tried several version drivers, still same problem, already filed a warranty claim, this card is good for those want liquid cool in the beginning tho. But I'll say even the liquid cool options are really limited cos it's not a reference card layout, I can only find ekwb solutions but it's kind of a pain in my ass cos I am now using a Alienware Aurora R5, which is pretty hard to install any liquid cool radiators. I guess I'll sell it in the end and get a EVGA one. I will avoid buying Gigabyte product in the future, I would rather paying extra for EVGA liquid cool cards, and in the end you will find you are actually saving money compared to this card plus liquid cool blocks etc.

        •  

          You should be able to get a radiator / res that can be mounted outside of your case and use some flex tubes into the case to cool it. And yes ek tend to be the only options when it comes to water blocks that are not in the top 5 most sold versions.

      thanks for the review. its good to have the review of an actual user :)

    what are these like for heat? I understand blower style can run warmer… im planning a nzxt build with a kraken x52 or 62 front radiator pulling air in, so air in the case will be slightly warmer, and then exhaust out the top and back (NZXT S340 case) anyone knowledgeable able to guide me in this choice? Will the hotter running card decrease the working life of the card? I'm looking to do a semi future proof build thats gonna last for 5-10 years so want something long lasting. This seems like a really good price but wondering what the drawbacks are…

      I don't think any gaming built can last more than 5 years, it will cost you much more to built a gaming desktop that last more than 3 years.

        My last gaming system lasted me 6 years and still works great.

        Disagree. Whilst I can't play the latest games, my GTX580 and i5-2500k are still going strong. Haven't even formatted since 2011.

      I had the choice of the 3 fan vs the blower of this card. For what its worth here is the conclusion I found. Blower fan's are a bit more advantages if you're running a smaller case as the heat is directed at the back of the case. They do suffer from a higher temperature than normal open designs with 3 fan's. The upside of higher temp 1-2* degree's is that your components near your GPU are not as hooter at open designs.

      Over-all (Blowers)
      GPU runs a bit hotter (1-3) degrees and isn't suited to overclocking.
      Components near the GPU don't suffer from increase in temperature (as the heat is exhausted at the back of the case).
      Favours smaller cases over larger open cases.

      Over-all (Open Design)
      GPU run's cooler, but does suffer a bit more from fan whine.
      Components near the GPU suffer from a increase in temperature (depending on your airflow through the case)
      Favours larger case with better air-flow.

      My new rig is
      7700k (with water cooler)
      1080 (card on sale here)
      Smaller case.
      32GB 3400mhz Ram
      M2 500GB drive.

      Over-all I should have it built tomorrow and let you know how it goes compared to my current pc.

          Keep in mind that I don't overclock my machines as I don't have the time nor the desire to **** around with my PC as I was younger. Younger me would love to overclock the hell out of a open air gpu. Older me I personally as long as it doesn't sound like a xeon server at work with 64 cores and 512GB of ram I will be happy!

          @doodo477:

          Don't get your hopes up on the sound part. These blowers now days are starting to sound more n more like the old vacuum. Heat wise you will probably get close to throttling as opposed to a proper heat sink fan set up that should keep the cards around the 60-70 mark.

        •  

          @Kiato: Find out tomorrow when I get build the new machine. Granted if throttles due to over-heating or the noise is extreme I will send it back as miss-leading advertisement and pay the extra for the 3 fan card.

          Hope it works out well let us know how it fairs underload for extended periods of time.

          Works out to be about 675$ delivered. Though might be worth to look at the evga range as their warranty is abit better.

          @Kiato:

          Got the machine up and running last night. Didn't have much time really to stress the card much (Had trouble install the OS on the M2), but did notice that it did peak at 82*, and start throttling the GPU. Increasing the fan curve to keep the temperature at 70* - 80* resolved that issue (at the cost of higher db).

          For noise wise and db level's will do a better test tonight with tests over a longer period of time. Though the card is about 5db lower than my previous card. I can start hearing the fan over the headphone at about 75-80% fan power, and at 100% you cannot ignore the fan noise through the headphones.

          db level, using a sound meter. My room is about 40db without a aircon going. With an aircon the room db is 45. Using the machine with the side off was 49db at idle. Running 3D benchmark (without the side) the db curve was 51db, 54db, 67db, and max 70db.

          Temperature wise the GPU at idle is about 36*, and the CPU at 33*.

        •  

          @doodo477:

          That's some pretty impressive evaluating and testing. heaven benchmark is a little better for long term testing as it will loop so you can test over long periods of time and see where the max temps plateau at.

          As for the sound levels… the only way to say this is its pretty shithouse. Time to start looking for a water loop?

        Missing the noise factor in that comparison.

        Over-all (Blowers)
        Will drive you insane with the noise they put out, even at low load. Under high load will annoy everyone in your house.

        Over-all (Open Design)
        Much quieter under low loads and under high load you can't hear it through your headphones.

        For a SFF PC you have to go with a blower though.

    You should have gotten the gigabyte Xtreme gaming from msy for 760$. Mines silent amd overclocked to 2000+ mhz and still max 45c. This blower is like the very bottom of the 1080s.
