This one is differentiated from the very similar appearing G1 gaming by not having a backplate, having two heatpipes instead of four, and having a lower set of core clocks (also the fans appear slightly different but that doesn't seem important). The lack of backplate doesn't seem to be an issue since I found no perceptible flex in the card after installation, the two heatpipes are not a huge deal in my opinion (card hits ~70c in furmark and ~50c in the games that I've tested), and the core clocks on my card seem a bit strange (but not in a bad way).
My observed base clock is 1114MHz which matches the specifications, but my boost clock I've seen go above 1300Mhz, when the design specification of this specific card is a boost clock of 1253MHz. Seems to produce no problems with heat/power consumption, so I'm not complaining. Memory clock is as advertised.
Coil whine. Happily, I have had no issues with it. Under 300 fps, I haven't been able to make out any sort of noise from the card other than its fans (which are not loud at any point). Above that framerate, I have definetely been able to hear coil whine (running minecraft at 1000 fps actually made the coil whine pretty shockingly loud), but since I'm not aware of any monitors 300Hz or higher, I'm going to call this a complete non-issue.
Physically speaking, the build quality is not something I was elated with but it's functional. The heatsinks on my card are not perfectly linear (see attached picture, both ends of the heatsink assembly seem bent towards the PCB), and I actually had to fiddle with the plastic fan shroud to move it out of the way enough to plug in the power cables. Doesn't seem to cause temperature issues or anything else so whatever. I will say that having helped my roommate assemble his computer with the ASUS 970 Strix, the Strix is just a better build quality card overall.
That's my experience of the subjective aspects of the card, everything else seems to be as advertised (so excellent).
4 MONTH UPDATE: I've since upgraded to a 1080p144 monitor, and so far aside from Crysis nothing perceptibly drops this card below 144fps. Since I originally put this review up, there's been some interesting discoveries with the ways the 970 manages ram (effectively having 3.5GB VRAM instead of 4), but for 1080 gaming it appears that there are no tangible consequences of this. Your mileage may vary with higher resolution setups.
4.5 MONTH UPDATE: This card is extremely simple to overclock. I've used afterburner and added +210MHz to the core clock and +180MHz to the memory clock, and changed nothing else. The card is stable, and gains a decent bit of performance. Still recommended.
2/24/16 Update: Apparently other users besides me are experiencing the same type of Coil Whine issue when V-sync is turned off. Gigabyte software is put together in a half baked mess, heck even my XFX R9 280 ran better than the coil whine i have to deal with in this 970. Im either going to RMA or go back to the red team with a 390. This is ridculous Gigabyte.
3/16/16: decided to return my graphics card to amazon. I'm sorry! The GTX 970's have way to many issues regarding price/performance ratio. Especially considering the 970 I recieves had some of the worst coil whine I've ever heard on a video card. Props to #amazon for the quick and swift return process, easy and painless.
Gigabyte, I don't know if I can have your trust for awhile. Loved the design, and the PCB, but your product failed to perform to expectations. Let me know if anything changes and I will reconsider. I think I will just stick to a stock Reference GTX 970.
It lasted about 7 months before it failed.
I just completed an RMA "repair" through Gigabyte, I got the same card back and it's still broken. Still getting artifacting and freezing/crashes while gaming. I really wish they would have just sent me a new card. I had to underclock the card down to about 800 MHz core clock to keep it from crashing and sometimes that doesn't even work...
I'm sure the card is fine while it works, but this will be the last Gigabyte purchase I make. At least with EVGA, I can be assured I will be sent a brand new card if mine dies.
Assassin's Creed Unity (one of the games you can download for free, Amazon will email you after you buy the card), Battlefield 4, Far Cry 3, and WoW WoD all run smoothly on maxed out settings at 1080. Assassin's Creed Unity absolutely looks stunning. I feel like I'm in Paris! I used to get some screen tearing the first week (mostly on WoW), but that rarely happens now. I'm not sure if it's because the new driver fixed it. But I'm planning to get a G-Sync monitor soon anyway. If you don't know what G-Sync is, read reviews on G-Sync monitors. It's apparently a real thing.
The card runs quiet for me, but it's a bit longer than my GTX 580. It's thinner though. Make sure your case has enough room. The LED on the card can be static, glowing, flashing, etc. (see pictures)
I love the card so much I'm getting one for my boyfriend now for Christmas!
