    Wow, that backplate really sucks up the heat. Is it thinner than usual? Great review as always.

    I love the names some of these companies come up with..."Super Jetstream," indeed....;) How about "Hypersonic Hillbilly," or "Hurricane Vortex" or "Black Hole Event Horizon"...? Possibilities are endless...!

    Good product, cool & silent combined with good overclocking! What do you reckon, just as good as the Amp! product when overclocked, but not as noisy, and temps similar IIRC.

    I thought the SJS versions were the 'cream' of the respective range but only GPU has been tweaked on this, would have expected RAM to be tweaked too! However, it's a darn sight cheaper than most 980ti OC editions that only tweak the GPU and cheaper than their reference 980ti?

    Seems to be a slot gobbler too like the AMP! Extreme, taking up 3 slots, even though it's 2.5 slots wide. Same was true for their 680 Jetstream where the middle fan stuck out more making it 2.5 slots wide so effectively blocking 2 free slots! Also don't like these 'dump the heat in your case' coolers!

    i like the white colour and the white leds its a nice touch and also silent and cool makes it my favorite 980ti so far ,however the sticking point for me at the moment is price ,the 980ti in europe is very expensive we are paying much much more on amazon usa price is $700 if you convert the british pounds price to dollars we are paying $1000 for the same card i would like to see the price of the 980ti drop down make it fair so we in europe pay same prices as americans

    Obviously it's a trend among manufacturers in past few years, every single one of them has it's line of Super-Ultra-Turbo-whatever called graphic cards or mobos. These days young gamers are probably geting horny on all these flashing signs on retail boxes so if that's gonna increase sales why not use some bombastic names. For old gamers it doesn't matter but for new age gamers obviously it does matter. For us old fart gamers probably we can expect some manufacturer to use something like MILF edition, lol: Motherboard I'd Like to "whatever"

    Keep in mind that your Asus GTX 970 Strix is using same 'dump the heat in your case' solution, lol

    It's not stupid when you have propper airflow inside case so I don't see that as a problem. IMHO Palit's Super JetStream line of GPU's are very nice and reliable choice in past two years.

    actually, heatsink fins orientation on his gtx970 is oriented in such a way that the air is pushed along the card and to the back (and possibly front) while this palit has fins that will push the air sideways. So it's not the same.
    But, I doubt that there is any significant difference between the two systems because they are both open all over the place.

    Nothing major tho, you can push the hot air out pretty quickly with and extra case fan on top or on the back of the case.

    Also remember these temps were measured OUTSIDE of a case on a custom test rig that sits flat so the cards are vertical and the heat can escape freely!

    true but noise is also more pronounced since card is outside...Also, you can vent the case and gain even better temps than on the bench table (depending on the bench table setup of course)

    No kidding...;) I remember this one product box from 15-20 years ago--can't remember the name of the company--I think it might've been Asus--anyway, the package contained a $300 GPU, and on the front of the box was the head/face of a 6-8 year old boy, his hair sticking straight up like he had his finger stuck in a light socket and his eyes as big a saucers..! I thought, "Now what the heck does that have to do with a 3d card???" I could only conclude that the opinion of the marketers in the country designing the boxes was that apparently all North American children were rich and were the primary market for these cards...! (Not hardly!) That stuff is just too funny at times...:)

    But the card will produce those temps whether inside or outside a case so you need some high air flow/CFMs going through your case to dissipate that heat, which could lead to more noise! Then it's how do you setup the airflow, Higher air flow/CFM fans front side for the exhausts so it sucks out the heat and slightly lower airflow/CFM fans on the top rear puling in cooler air so it gets drawn in by the pull from the exhaust fans, or just reverse that setup and have front/side blowing in and the higher air flow fans top/rear sucking out!

    I have a HAF932 case with an AIO CPU cooler with a 280mm RAD at the top with fans in a push pull config to draw air in (hot air in the case isn't being drawn through the RAD then), front fan draws air in too, then the side/rear/bottom fans exhaust, the HAF932 allows a bottom fan mount so I use it!

    Some cases (like mine) have non removable drive bays blocking the front fan so if you use them then air isn't going to get through efficiently and will cause turbulence (if pulling air in) as the air hits the drive bays and scatters wherever, so the bottom fan mount in the HAF932 helps to compensate for that, or you could watercool them!

    Hello!

    Is it possible to SLI this Card? With one Slot between the cards free?

    Thanks for the Info.
