Less Friction Between Components

EVGA GeForce GTX 970
The GTX 970 from EVGA is powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features. Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next-generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing. For the first time, gaming GPUs can dynamically render indirect light using the new VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination technology). Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts more realistically in the game environment.

ACX 2.0 Fans Only Activate at 60°C+
In supporting users getting both a silent but powerful PC, the fans in the ACX 2.0 cooler don't activate until the unit reaches more than 60°C, these temperatures are well within the safe limits of the GPU, this means when you are reading your email or surfing the web, you won't hear and active fan in the background.

Double Ball Bearing Fan Design - The Better Choice
The most beneficial part of using the double ball bearing design in the ACX 2.0 fan motor is that it provides 400% longer lifespan over competitors oil-sleeved bearing designs, this is due to the fact that the oil used in oil sleeve bearings will dry out in a shorter period of time, or even leak after and amount of usage.

Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by I'm sure it would be great if the drivers wouldn't keep crashing Since I got this card it's not worked properly, now this could be a compatability issue with my other components but I wouldn't buy anything from EVGA again because of their poor customer support. 28 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good entry into 4k I chose the EVGA gtx970 based on reviews and its standard overclock. I run two of these cards in SLI with: 128gb DDR4 ECC Ram 2x Xeon e5 2011v3 Cpus When running in 4k SLI i found that the cards seem to handle things quite well. The only issues i have ran into is cooling, the cards can run VERY hot running BF4 at 4k ultra, but maintain a solid 45-50fps. Although this is seen as a 4k card, it is the absolute minimum, having one card is simply not enough for 4k gaming, and it is INCREDIBLE overkill for anything at 1080p I would therefore rate this card perfect for 1440p gaming, it will eat all you can throw at it with ultra settings. The card is quiet thanks to the usual zero rpm fan speeds untill the card is really used. It is a solid design, although it does not have a back plate. Performance to price... this is a very good card. For 4k i would recommend a 980-ti 01 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb gfx card Upgraded from gtx 670 sli. About the same speed as the two cards but much much quieter and draws less power. Fan doesn't power up at all until you starch game so much quieter than previous generation cards. Highly recommended. 28 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, Solid card This card is great for high to ultra gaming at 60fps. Newer titles such as REise of the Tomb Raider run great alos. 16 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well established and best bang for buck! A well known and established gpu manufacturer with plenty of punch to run pretty much all current titles on high to max settings. But like all games their are some exceptions (farcry 4 amd gta 5 come to mind) as I have experienced extreme fps drops almost every 30 seconds or so whilst running these titles. They can handle a stable 60 fps on max no problem but are unplayable most of the time due to the drops. That being said, other current games like MGS, Rise of the tomb raider, elite, The Witcher 3 etc run smoothly with no issue. First time with a Nvidia card, runs quiet and cool plus the fans not spinning on idle and -60'c is a nice feature. A few leds on the side would have been a nice addition or the option of a metal backplate as the card is quite beefy. All in all a solid product, and with the free £40 game chucked in your laughing! A+ 13 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Card! Can't fault it at all, the card runs everything on ultra settings, worth spending the extra to get a great card like this 08 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect. Great value! This item was perfect for what i needed, the added bonus was getting Assassins Creed free with it, which pretty much knocked this GPU down to around £210. Would recommend this over a 980ti - Due to the price and the fact using two of these cards still produces more graphics rendering then a titan. Only issue's i have had was the Nvidia experience but after messing around with some setting i got it working - And does all the driver updates without me having to manually check. If you're going to buy this graphics card i would first search online to see if it works well with your current CPU - I have an older CPU so i'm not getting the best frames, but upgrading is always better than buying a whole new build. Would buy again for dual graphics. 03 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, timely delivery Never expect anything less from Scan. On time and works perfectly. 02 December 2015
