So i got this card for free from someone who was going to either donate or throw it away. She bought her for her son awhile back and he wanted a different graphics card. So she just kept it in her closet.
Anyways its a Colorful IGAME GTX 970 so everything is in Chinese and I am not able to fins anything online for this card but a couple pictures.

Its never been used as for what I was told and its still completely packaged and seal not broken on the anti static bag card is in.

There is an extra heat pipe it seems, and I was able to find a picture from a forum that isnt in English showing its inserted in it for some reason but unsure why.

Does anyone have any idea?

Here is the site for the review showing it installed

Owh the review did say how to put it. U have to put the heatpipe between the vrm heatsink (i guess). And it should make physical contact with vrm heatsink. sorry for my bad english
