It can do all, is powerful and small.
amazing GPU, usually silent and runs cool
Probably overkill, however I do run 2 monitors (one ultra-wide) and play games such as The Witcher 3 on max settings. The cooler is far superior to the founder's edition, and it has never been above 65 degrees on the stock fan curve. It was difficult to fit into my case, and took about 20 minutes of manoeuvring to get it seated in the motherboard and to fit the power connectors.
Happy with GPU is under water so. 2.088ghz 40 c on full load
This is the first time I went all out on a GPU and even though my 970 it replaced was still a solid card, the details in games that I was playing was immediately noticeable. I can't wait to continue to push the card. It's pricey, admittedly, but I hope to get years of max settings with it.
Fans have a horrible whine to them at 1100-1200rpm, any higher or lower is fine (have noticed a slight whine at 2200-2300, but fans rarely kick onto that). EVGA advised it needs to be RMA'd but that they don't have the inventory at the moment. So, I am holding onto it for the time being. I adjusted the fan curve to avoid those speeds and haven't had an issue. Gaming in a 75-78f room for a few hours has a stable temp of 75-77c and is silent for the most part (fans spinning at about 1400-1700rpm), well below threshold so I'm happy. Once inventory clears up, I'll probably RMA it for peace of mind. EVGA support is amazing, so no concerns there.
