K thx, had some ideas you guys pretty much told me same, just wanted to back up my thoughts.
With that order.

My best Fire Strike score: 11653
i7 2600k @ 4.6ghz
evga GTX 970 FTW+
evga precision reports boosted clocks as:
Hello GTX 970 proud owners! I just upgraded from an EVGA GTX 760 SC to a Galax GTX 970 Exoc Black. All I can say for now is wow... Just "Wow!"
Processor is fine.
Congrats and welcome
Nice one...Another Filipino...Overclock that 970..Share us your result..
You will see most of your GPU with cpu overclocking up to 4.4 , anything more of this values doesn't worth the heat and the benefits are more "cosmetic" (to games) and very little boost.
I recently got my first Nvidia card and joined the group with a EVGA GTX970 SSC ACX 2.0.
The card is amazing, but there is something that is bothering me a little bit, though I think I'm probably just being paranoid about it.
Its the dBi fan profile thing...
I live in a hot place, so idle temps with fans at 0º are usualy around 45º to 50º. I know the fans only start spinning at bout 65º, its how the card is built so well this isn't supposed to be a problem, but still these idle temps kinda bothers me.
Doesn't it decreases the lifespan of the card? Or this is all good and its just my head still thinking with "old cards" mentality and just not used to the new technology yet.
Even using your card at 80c should not degrade the lifespan of the card really.. if its idling at 45 or 50 you shouldn't worry even a bit.
No problem at all. Idle temps of older cards (pre-2010) were very commonly around 60c or higher. My nephew still has an 8800gts 640mb card I gave to him a few years ago, it idles at 64c. Most common thing to fail on a card are the fans. So smart design decision on keeping them off below 65c.
Thank you both for the quick replies.
I guess i'm a bit paranoid with temps.
@IcE & Odellot
Thanks! I'm pretty much contented with its performance so no overclocking for now.
I was tired of all the 580 sli bug so i just got a gigabyte 970 and the upgrade was better then i expected
I have had mine for about 2 weeks now. It's like night and day compared to my GTX 460.
What's wrong with the new drivers? I just bought a 970 to replace my 7950
Past few "new" drivers I've tried will randomly stop responding/crash for me. No real rhyme or reason to it. Just stop, they come back and are fine afterwards but it's still annoying. Wish i could remember the last stable ones I used. (think just before the GTA:V drivers came out.)
Hm... I actually have zero issues with AMD right now apart from an issue with Flash and Overdrive.
I guess I'll keep the 970 resting in its box until these get fixed
