MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Armor OC 8GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1920 Core, 1556MHz GPU, 1746MHz Boost is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it I was a bit sceptical about purchasing this item as it is quite expensive, however I have not regretted it at all. The card is huge length wise. I know a few other reviews have mentioned this however it is worth checking that your case can accommodate it - my previous case was a little too short so I had to buy a new one. The card runs smoothly, was easy to install and is near silent. For reference I previously had a Quadro 2k which was long overdue an upgrade. I use this card for gaming (Fallout 4 runs easily at ultra high quality) and game dev (UE4 - again runs very smoothly with ultra settings).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what it sais on the box Runs a cool 65 deg C no oc playing witcher three on ultra on a 1440p monitor. Crank it up another 200 core clock speed and runs nicely at 82. My bottleneck was the cpu so oc that from 3.5 to 3.9 and everything super lag and tear free. Very pleased simple installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent mid-range 1070 OK, so it's not the fastest GTX1070 out there. It's not got flashing LEDs and half a dozen power connectors. But it's also £30 cheaper than the Gaming X, somewhat more subtle, and (just) fits in the tight thermal budget and space of my Mini-ITX build. The Twin Frozr cooler works even better than it did on my old 970; even when gaming the fans often don't move, and I need to run Furmark for it to make any appreciable noise. This may change as games get more demanding - right now this card is overkill, and the price is a bit strong if you're not after high resolutions, VR, or silly frame rates. But if you're looking to future-proof your desktop, or have both power and silence, it's an excellent card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent card Very happy with this card, its totally silent fans don't even start till the GPU temp hit 60c I am now gaming at 1440p resolution.. I can play BF4 at over 100FPS at ultra settings.
