ASUS GTX1070 Turbo thoughts / owners?

Sup folks,

I'm looking to buy a GTX1070 with a blower fan (I've got a Mini-ITX case with a PSU shroud right below the PCI-slot), and I found the ASUS GTX1070 Turbo. I was wondering if any of you have one or have had one and what your experience with it is/was.

Why is it significantly cheaper than other 1070's? Is there a downfall?

Would love to know your experience

 

Also, if you don't have one but know something I don't, please let me know!

 

That is all

Regards,

TJ

I've sold them, and had no complaints.

I believe there is no backplate. If that matters to you...

 

Also, it doesn't look nearly as good as the reference ones. Those things, despite being a reference give off a premium look.

I'd go for the reference ones just for the look. Also, a blower style cooler would probably be better for you mini ITX case as long as you have good air intake for the GPU and/or CPU since it wouldn't heat up the entire case compared to open ones. Your card will heat up though but that is expected anyway.

You can bark like a dog, but that won't make you a dog.

You can act like someone you're not, but that won't change who you are.

 

Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart

 

How I plan my builds -

Spoiler

For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."

i got one a week ago works fine, but on gaming mode the temps go all the way up to 80'C under load , had to make a custom fan curve to keep this sucker under 75'C

I had a Turbo recently, but it was too noisy for my taste. The fan makes a buzzing sound when running on low speeds - with "low" being about 1350 RPM. I wasn't able to lower the fan speed below that RPM number. The card should be ok though, if you're not aiming for a super silent build.
