EVGA GTX 1070 Superclocked Review

Up Close

In a world where most coolers look similar to each other, thanks to having a consistent criteria for success meaning that you end up with closely linked design solutions, the EVGA is superficially similar with a couple of fans on a big bundle of heatpipes and fins, but externally it's not remotely like any other cooler we've seen in this generation.

There is no doubting the manufacturer of your graphics card if you have an EVGA Superclocked. With a lit side panel, lit logo on the backplate and plentiful lighting on the front it will be obvious to even passing folks which brand you've chosen.

Despite the front of the card looking busy and thus thick, from the side it's clear that the Superclocked is just a two slot card. Barely even that. We really love the look of the black and white combination matched up to the rugged aesthetic given by the screws. It looks as rigid as it feels.

Wherever you look there is an EVGA logo. Even end on there is on. About the only surprise is that they haven't stamped the vent holes at the rear into an EVGA logo. It seems like a missed opportunity given the four other EVGA markings.

"Combine that with a massive acreage of full-spectrum RGB lighting and you have a card which is just as at home in a rugged build as it is in a showy one"

Would just like to note that the SC version does not have RGB lighting. Only the FTW version does.Quote

Who needs RGB anyway...

RGB lighting is over-rated imo.

Me... I like the option of choosing for myself what colour I want my rig to be. Even if it means turning them off if I choose so. I still then have the options of turning them back on etc.

Options is always nice and appreciated... Rather than being "controlled".Quote

In the end it all comes down to if you are willing to pay extra for the ftw version which does have rgb. If not than rather go for the SC version. Extra clock speeds on the ftw also not worth the money in my opinionQuote
