Temperatures

You have to look a long way down the bevy of 980Tis before you come across the G1.Gaming. Of all the models we've tested only the water-cooled Zotac managed a lower load temperature.

Lighting Options

The OC Guru II is well laid out with everything being clear and obvious. Vital when you're overclocking a graphics card. Nobody wants to accidentally put an extra volt through it.

You can also see the colour choices for the logo. Far beyond the default red, green, blue we've seen. It's not quite full spectrum but at least most people should find an offering that matches their hue of choice, even if it's white*.

* we know white isn't a hue, don't write in.

I've had this card a little while and it's a solid performer. Good clocks and a quality cooler. Absolutely no complaints.

I bought the ek waterblock recently and I'm looking forward to seeing what it does under water.Quote

Why is it, that the 'Vanilla' / Reference 980TI's can end up number 2 and number 3 in the lists for the 4K test and the Watchdogs test?

How can it beat the 'extreme cards' ?Quote

TBH I did not know the difference by winning the lottery could outperform the gains from £100 extra spend on a 'top' card

Would be interesting to see ~20 identical cards being tested to fully understand how much of a difference it can make.Quote

Still a 980 Ti core in the middle, the top cards add longevity and better overclocking for poorer binned / silicone lottery GPU's. The higher end cards do have muych better components and cooling. Doesnt always mean its going to be the best overclocking card on the planet.Quote
