MSI GeForce GTX 1070 SEA HAWK EK X 8GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1920 Core, 1582 MHz GPU, 1771 MHz Boost, Waterblock is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good basis, great product Watercooling in your case? Can't be bothered to remount a waterblock and throw away the fan-based cooler? This is the job, and only a bit more expensive than buying the parts separately. The waterblock on this card is exceedingly well finished, and the temperatures while running indicate excellent function. Temperatures rarely rise above 50 degrees attached to my 360mm EK radiator which also cools an i7. Card performance is great (i.e. a well performing 1070), but I'm not expecting much overclocking potential beyond its higher default clocks. The only surprise here was the sheer size of the GTX1070 design. It's a big wide card, but mercifully fitted in my case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent GPU and great value due to waterblock and backplate I bought this graphics card to replace my dated GTX 770 as I wanted to get my PC VR ready. I needed a watercooled card to fit into my loop and was initially going yo buy a founders edition and add an EK block. After pricing it up this is actually much better value as the block is pre fitted and included a backplate. Fitting the block yourself is always a bit nerve racking so the fact this worked out cheaper it seemed like a no brainer. After I drained my loop and removed the 770 I stumbled across the first problem. This card is huge - dont be fooled by the images as I was. It sits very tall with the EK block and as a result my hose from my top radiator ended up around 40mm short. After I cut new hose, filled and primed the loop I was good to go. Second issue then followed! My version of Windows 10 would not allow me to install the drivers. After around an hour of downloading various different versions from Nvidia and Googling forums I found out you need the latest version of 10 to support the Pascal cards. As my version was an Enterprise edition upgrading proved problematic. I bit the bullet, backed up my files and clean installed Windows and install was a breeze. Installed the latest drivers and away it went. Next - the performance! This card is a monster! I have yet to try out all my games but the FPS over my old card is amazing! It is not without it's faults though - mainly (hopefully) due to drivers. This is normal with any new card architecture and should be ironed out soon through driver updates. The issue I had was with 'No Mans Sky'. This was so laggy it was unplayable. Even turning everything up to max didn't help so shows some games some have issues with the new Pascal cards. All in all very happy with the card - never seen it over 50 degrees yet even through benchmarks such as Heaven etc. If your interested my specs are as follows: i7 4770K 1070 (This card) Asrock Z97 Fatality Killer 16GB Patriot Intel Masters Edition Ram 512GB Vertex 4 SSD Corsair Graphite 780T 1x XSPC 360 Rad 1x XSPC 240 Rad Swiftech D5 If your looking for a watercooled card this is an ideal solution. It costs a bit more than a standard 1070 but it actually saves you money (and stress) as it's all fitted and ready to go. It also looks amazing - the clear waterblock looks so much better than my last EK block. The only gripe I have is not with the card but bad timing from when I ordered it. I notice 2 days later there is a free $115 in game offer included for Paragon. Oh well - maybe Scan will offer me this if they read this review! :-)
