That card looks neat, if the cooler is quiet and handles stock clocks well i'd be interested in a 1070 equivalent.

The cooler is brlliant for such a simple change. Ive got a 970 turbo and the dual sided inlet lowers both the volume and pitch of the centrifugal fan. Its so quiet i cant really ever hear it in my htpc. Ive been thinking of cutting out the grid pattern on the IO plate. It would be cool it it were a factory removable plate that was seperate from the part surrounding the connectors.

Hopefully it will be a reference board layout and just uses different components OR at least has a waterblock made for it etc.

4x longer lifespan? Have they torture tested it to prove that or is that theorycrafting?

Sounds like the turbo doesn't turbo and just stays at the stock clocks to me...

It took 4x the baseball bat hits.

The name is a bit misleading, but hey, if it's cheap and quiet i'll be happy.

Turbo must be in reference to the fan speed etc

This is the sort of product I'd be interested in, decent components but no frills and a price to match. Of course, my plan would be to strip the air cooler and fit a water block to it - let's hope one gets created for this board...and it supports the new High Bandwidth SLI bridges...looking at you EKWB...

Funny... a value orientated article, without the actual value.

You must be right! I was wrong before in thinking the 'Turbo' was the same 'Turbo' as their dual intake blower cooler from the 900 series...Cmon Asus.

I retract my statements about the fan quality from before, Asus must have wanted some of the market share that MSI took with their plastic blower 900 series cards.
