    Seems like a monster, again need to learn more on overclocking and get gaming. Seems to stay pretty cool under stress test just below 70 c and 29 c idle. Noise levels not too bad either.

    Update: Now overclocked.....

    I think this has the least 1070 performance than the other companies like evga or others but it works fine and the only problem is the temps cuz they reach to about 82 even if u don't overclock it

    Its the 1070. As I said above, scored in the hight 1300's (I will check my real score soon and update this review). It looks GREAT in the case with the Mobo. It made some weird sounds when entering the pci-e slot which freaked me out, but it works in my computer. I would say be more careful than I was when putting this baby in. Nevertheless, it works perfectly.

    The only "downside" would be the blower fan. But I check the heat coming out and this thing at its not a lot. And when you are done gaming it cools down almost immediately. This is a good choice if you are trying to keep your cpu cool and less heat in your case. If you have a fan CPU cooler, this will help. But then again, the thing is overkill for a lot of games still. Especially some earlier AAA titles. Im interested to see how it does with BF1 and upcoming titles.

    UPDATE 7/27/16 --- So yes, this thing can get a bit hot, but the temperature max on these things are not even enough to warrant worrying. I play Black ops 3 on Ultra preset at 1440p (down sampled on a 1080p monitor) and it is still giving me 70-90 fps. It just gets hot, but these reference editions are just so well built and premium, that the heat does not affect performance. If you are worried about heat in your case, just get the FE and never worry again.

    UPDATE 8/16/16 --- The 1070 Destroys Fallout 4, getting above 144fps on my 144hz monitor. In fact, you have to use the Nvidia inspector to cap the frame rates for my game so that the engine isn't running at the frame rate speed. The only time I ever dropped below 60fps was when I was in the middle of Boston on a skyline that had to do a lot of rendering. But thats only because Im playing on the Ultra preset.

    UPDATE 10/31/16 --- even as board partner cards have started to come out, I am still glad I snagged the founders edition. It keeps the heat out of the case for the CPU, and if you aren't going crazy overclocking, you can get well into the 2000mhz zone with MSI afterburner. But overclocking this card is pointless, it will only gain you 4-5 fps.

    Great quality with great performance. avg. 100 fps for World of Warcraft in my case.

    from completed build D.Va Theme (First Build...Kinda)

    Bought it because FE GTXs look very nice in glass panel cases ... and I only want to build HTPCs so I needed a reference card.

    from completed build Nano S 2017 - Main build

    Would recommend any blowerstyle card for smaller cases. The cooler solution is not that bad and the noise level in the newer Nvidia cards are fairly acceptable. In the Nano S I would personally say both custom cards and blowerstyle cards will do fine.

    Runs a little warmer than the non-FE cards, and the fan is always on (idle around 1000rpm). Fan is very silent, though, and the performance has been great!

    from completed build Green Vortex (Max Cringe)

    A GTX 1070 is a great gpu even now after the 20 series has been released (partially). It is one of the best bang for your buck GPUs amazing at 1080p and 1440p at 144 and 60hz respectively. You can expect max setting from this card for less than $400. **It was also the only card that anyone would trade my old laptop for.

    from completed build Big Black Box (3B)

    Very powerful card! Not a huge fan of the high temps, but they are normal. The blower style fan will work well when I SLI two 1070s further in the future.
