EVGA Z270 Classified K - Back to top

HardwareAsylum

Recommended - HardwareAsylum

"The UEFI layout is quite good and displays exactly what you need to see. This is an important feature given that many manufacturers tend to overcomplicate the interface in an attempt to show "everything" or do the opposite and hide everything in a list of complex menus. The EVGA UEFI is very straight forward showing you the current state of your system while giving you appropriate menus to make adjustments."
 
Overclockers

Approved - Overclockers

"The Z270 Classified is loaded with features, pushes the limits very well, and is quite aesthetically pleasing."

"Something really important to know, when I streamed with a 1080 in the past, I had to use medium graphics to get a really good framerate, but now with the 1080TI, I can do that with Ultra Settings and keep a very solid high framerate while streaming"

"The custom cooler on the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 is both creatively styled and effective – it runs cool and does so while remaining quieter than the Founders Edition."
 
Gamers Nexus

- Gamers Nexus

"The EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 is superior in the cooling department to the Gaming X and Xtreme Aorus, when all cards are left at ‘auto’ configuration. Power component temperatures are well within reasonable range and GPU diode temperature is about 3-4C cooler."
 
Tech Powerup

Editor's Choice - Tech Powerup

"Unlike many other custom designs, the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2 comes with a dual-slot cooler that provides much better thermal performance than the Founders Edition, and will still fit all cases."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING iCX - Back to top

ComputerPowerUser.com

- ComputerPowerUser.com

"EVGA is here to say that there’s gotta be a better way. The iCX way is to instead rely on a series of thermal sensors and microcontrollers built onto the PCB that intelligently determine which of this graphics card’s fans should spin, at what speed, and for how long...EVGA has pushed the core and boost clocks to 1,569MHz and 1,683MHz, respectively. The GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 also gets a small bump to its effective memory clock, raising it to 11,016MHz."

Golden Bear Award - Bjorn3D

"When it comes to the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING iCX 3.0 there’s little not to like, Dual BIOS, ICX Cooling solution, 10 + 2 phase power, massively powerful, eye candy galore and knowing you can play any game out there at max settings. We saw the temperature spike to 70°C for a split second then the third fan kicked in and leveled out at 69°C and remained at 68 – 69°C showing what a fantastic cooler the ICX design really is."

"On the Master BIOS which has a little less power target and a little bit less fan curve hit 60c, we never even saw 61c, so that tells me we've got a LOT of headroom for overclocking, and that is freaking amazing"

"What I didn’t expect was that it would also drop the temperatures a mean of six degrees and a peak of 18! iCX is no gimmick. Given a choice between the SC2 and another air-cooled 1080 at these speeds, it’s a no brainer: the SC2 wins. If you’re willing to overclock yourself, it’s a hands-down winner across the board."
 
Tweak Town

MUST HAVE BEST FEATURE AWARD! - Tweak Town

"EVGA is all class with the GTX 1080 SC2 iCX, with a major upgrade in its cooling technology with iCX. The best dual-slot GeForce GTX 1080 money can buy, with 2.2GHz GPU overclocking potential and silent gaming, EVGA hits yet another home run."

"The temperatures you saw were all with the factory fan curve and very very respectable, and even with a 2088 overclock the you didnt see any additional heat from the VRM because the VRM fan is speeding up to keep that temp down."
 
BitWit

"EVGA did have some FLIR cameras there for actual visual reference of thermal load, they had an FTW card next to an FTW2 card running the same frequency, same test, and you could see visually the FTW2 cards are staying cooler."
 
Hexus

- Hexus

"The energy-efficient nature of the 10-series GPUs means that, sometimes, the hottest-running components are memory and power regulation. So having some reporting on them makes implicit sense."
 
PC Perspective

- PC Perspective

"The new EVGA iCX Technology is impressive and will likely serve as a roadmap for future GPU development from competing AICs as well as reference designs coming from both NVIDIA and AMD."

Golden Bear Award - Bjorn3d

"We have long desired more than a generic core temperature reading and EVGA delivered monitoring in spades. Now with a glance at EVGA Precision XOC we can tell if it’s the Core, VRM’s or Memory that are running hot which enhances OCing and gives “Peace of Mind Gaming” it’s true definition."

"So how does this relate to real world performance? Do the redesigned fins, and the little pins, and the fins spinning at different speeds really make an improvement? Yeah, it does. While overclocked 115 on the GPU and 300 on the memory, looping unigine heaven for about half an hour, temps stabilized at about 52 degrees Celsius, and other tests stabilized around 64c, the ACX card averaged about 70c with the same overclock applied."

Recommended - Hot Hardware

"As much as we love the biggest, baddest graphics cards around here, there's something about high-performance, small form factor products that's just as cool. The 6GB EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming that we tested is a $249 graphics card with enough muscle to churn through most games at 1440P or lower resolutions, in a form factor and power envelope fit for a mini-ITX gaming build"
 

EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC GAMING ACX 3.0 - Back to top

Fanbolt

- Fanbolt

"Overall, for $129, I appreciate what the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC offers for someone who wants to give their PC a little kick to enjoy many of the best and most popular games. I also like that it doesn’t require any connection to the power supply, making it very easy to plug in and start playing for someone who may not be the most comfortable with the insides of a computer. It’s a wonderful starter card to feed the Overwatch addiction or manage the backlog of games from the recent Steam sale."

"In GTA5 which is a CPU heavy game, with all the draw distance maxed out the temps stayed well within check. Upper 40s package temp, and the cores in low to mid 40's..."
 
BabelTech

Editor's Choice Award - BabelTech

"EVGA’s 280 CLC is an excellent no-compromise all-in-one quiet cooler for a reasonable price considering its build, ease of installation, and all-inclusive package. It is well-deserving of our “Editor’s Choice” award and it easily cools our own overclocked hot-running Skylake i7-6700K to 4.7GHz. Highly recommended!"
 
Hexus

Approved - Hexus

"The large 280mm radiator, combined with dual 140mm fans and a latest-generation Asetek pump combine to deliver the best out-the-box cooling performance from any all-in-one solution we've tested."

"They designed a unique all in one unit with more control, a clean look, and their own fan design as well. The sleeved tubing, RGB lighting for the logo, and the overall waterblock look all together gives it a great style that should look good in just about any build. You can turn off the lighting if you want or set it to match your build."
