Gold GTX 1070 FE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So this isn't a question but i thought id share this, I plan on building a desk pc in the near future and i want the theme to be gold and black. I havent seen anyone paint the 10 series cards (not saying anyone hasnt) and i took on doing it, I have 2 1070s and the nvidia sli bridge and painted all the silver bits and I think they turned out amazing, though the top card picture got dirt on it while it was drying underneath  the heatsink window, the 2nd card i got didnt have the FE backplate on them so i made acrylic backplates for both, tell me what you think. All this took was spray paint and super glue.

that's quite excellent


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Honestly its not much of a noticeable improvement as you know sli isnt much like it used to be, i was able to pick a 2nd one up for $180 so its almost like a derivative piece, if you were thinking about running sli with 1070s im not to sure to recommend doing so, from what i found it has about a 10% improvement of that of a single 1080ti.
