ASUS GTX970 Turbo SLI



With a white and red cooler, the promise of silent operation and low power requirements, the ASUS GTX 970 looks like it might be TTL's Dream GPU. Let's have a look.

Oh lord is that pretty!



Would have been perfect had they included a full length backplate that stood off the PCB slightly.

It's why I said Stood off slightly, give it a 3 - 5mm gap should be plenty to feed the air it needs to the impeller.

But then you can't sandwich the cards in µATX builds!

If it had a backplate with a circular cutout over the intake, that would be ideal. The white is great, but the PCB kind of ruins it tbh.
