I had a bit of an issue with the temperature on these as I had them both right beside each other because I thought the space in my case wouldn't let me have them apart. Turns out I can just barely fit one lower down, fixed the temperatures on the cards but now my SSD runs a little hot, it's within acceptable ranges though!
The cards themselves perform amazingly, there isn't a game I've tried where having maxed out settings brings the framerate below 60. I tend to keep AA and those types of things off because I don't really notice any difference between the setting being on or not, when those settings are off I haven't seen games dip below 100 except where they're locked!
These cards in SLI run everything I throw at them... well at least for the next 6 months lol.
This beauty cost and arm and a leg but now that i use 1440p resolution 1080p on a 25+ inch screen looks gross.
Very silent at non gaming condition. The fan barely spin 60% while gaming at 4k at 1450 mhz overclock.
Beastly card, looks absolutely awesome with its pipes, and takes everything I throw at it like a champ, even in 1440p (or in Skyrim's case 3620x2036 DSR). Gonna get a backplate for this soon to seal the deal.
Absolutely beast of a card. Maxes everything i have going.
Only gripe is that i wish the red pieces were easier to remove/didnt void the warranty, hard to make a red card fit a not red scheme.
1080p 60fps no problem and silent
This card is awesome. I originally was worried that I wouldn't be able to play Skyrim at 1440p with ENBs, but this card performs!! 50+ FPS in Skyrim with all my mods even outdoors and in cities, and all my other games are well over 60 fps @ 1440p. I was able to overclock it a little bit, even more than the factory settings without changing the power target or the voltage.
Looks great. I got mine for below $400 on black friday. There is no greater bang for the buck out there at that price level.
I don't like red and wish there were more color options available; I also wish there was a backplate. I haven't tried overclocking yet. This was the cheapest 980 available at the time but works fine.
