"...if you want to build a small powerhouse, then this board is the way to go."
Hardware Slave

Editor's Choice - Hardware Slave

"The Z170, and namely the EVGA Z170 Stinger, are absolutely the right upgrade to buy if you are looking for a big jump in some kind of performance."

Highly Recommended - WSGF

"I was able to take the 3.5GHz i5-6600K to 4.1GHz simply by increasing the multiplier. This 600MHz increase represents a 17% overclock, without any changes to any more detailed settings such as voltage or bclock. The 4.1GHz was completely stable"

Hardware Asylum

Recommended - Hardware Asylum

"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."

EVGA X99 FTW K - Back to top


Approved - Overclockers.com

"EVGA’s X99 FTW K board builds on the solid product the non “K” version is and adds some new modern features with out of the box with Broadwell-E support, PCIe x4 32 Gbp/s M.2 slot, USB 3.1 G2 Type-A and C connectivity, and swaps out an Intel NIC for the Killer E2400. There are slight changes to the appearance of the board to set it apart from its namesake to the tune of a lot less red and more black (SATA and PCIe ports). Overall, I feel it is an improved look and certainly welcome additions making it relevant for today’s technologies"

"Overall the motherboard performed as you would expect with solid performance and surprisingly consistent scores in both our synthetic and real world benchmarks. When it comes to overclocking I found the X99 FTW K to be very responsive to system changes allowing my Core i7 5960X to run at 4.3Ghz with only a few clicks in the UEFI."
Modders Inc

Editors Choice - Modders Inc

"Performance wise, I think the results speak for themselves. The EVGA X99 FTW K is at the top of most of the charts and the charts that it doesn’t top, it is a really close race between the competitors. The UEFI interface is easy to use and easy to navigate. Taking the price and performance of the EVGA X99 FTW K into consideration, it earns the Modders-inc Editor’s Choice award. If your looking for a down and dirty motherboard that performs well without the extras, give this motherboard some consideration. What stands out for me is the fact that this is an all out performance motherboard that is worthy of the name FTW or FOR THE WIN."

EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2 - Back to top


Highly Recommended - TechPowerUp

"In exchange, you will get one of the most efficient PSUs money can buy today, backed by a ten year EVGA warranty for some peace of mind. Currently, only EVGA dares to offer such a long warranty, which is worth mentioning as it might convince the competition to follow suit."

EVGA SuperNOVA 1050 GS Power Supply - Back to top


Highly Recommended - WSGF

"SuperNOVA 1050 could conceivably run the Intel i7-6950X and a pair of NVIDIA GTX 1080s (total TDP of 550W) all while staying under 17db. All this and the unit retails for only $150. An amazing value here"

PC Perspective

PC Perspective GOLD Award - PC Perspective

"If you are on the hunt for a gaming notebook this spring that will get you through all of your gaming sessions while enabling some impressive desktop capability for professionals, the EVGA SC17 is one of my new favorite option!"

- Newegg

"While I’ve only had the laptop for less than a day, I’m happy to tell you the EVGA is an extremely impressive first offering from the boutique graphics company. With its unibody construction and potentially VR-ready overclocking, other manufacturers of 17” gaming laptops should be worried. EVGA just up the game."

Approved - Hexus

"The SC17 lays a solid foundation and does enough to suggest that EVGA is a welcome player in the gaming laptop market."
Toms Hardware

- Toms Hardware

"EVGA's SC17 includes most of the hardware an enthusiast could want. It's loaded with premium components that dole out high performance, and room to overclock makes the story even more compelling. The SC17 is consequently a praise-worthy rookie effort for EVGA in the gaming segment."
Computer Shopper

Good for Gaming - Computer Shopper

"EVGA proved it could produce a world-class gaming notebook with all the polish we’d expect from a major brand. It did well almost everywhere, and that’s saying a lot."

RECOMMENDED - Legit Reviews

"When it comes to temperatures the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid Gaming video card idled at 23C on our open air test bench and got up to 40C when gaming for over an hour non-stop. These are very impressive GPU temperatures thanks to the water cooling solution!"

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0 - Back to top

Legit Reviews

RECOMMENDED - Legit Reviews

"It’s really hard to find negatives with this card as it topped all of our performance charts when it mattered, was at the bottom of the chart for noise levels and right in the middle for power consumption. "
Hot Hardware

- Hot Hardware

"In our early testing, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Superclocked was practically silent – even under load (the fan had a very faint, audible whir when spun up), and temperatures were a non-issue. Under load, the GPU temperature hovered in the high 70’C – 80’C range, a few degrees shy of the default 83’C temperature target."

- JayZ2Cents

"...I can't even hear the card because the fans are not running very quickly at all temperatures hit a max of 78...and our fan speed never we above 44%, so if you run this card with a custom fan profile, set the fan at 60% and you can hardly hear it, and our temps are at 66c in Doom maxed out at 4k."
Hardware Canucks

DAM GOOD - Hardware Canucks

"EVGA has installed their epic-looking ACX 3.0 heatsink onto this card and the results really do speak for themselves. It is able to maintain a temperature of just 75°C despite the Superclocked’s increased clock speeds, which is significantly better than what the reference card could lay claim to."
Hot Hardware

Recommended - Hot Hardware

"We dig the large badge and how the shroud wraps around the card. It’s got a significant factory overclock, some fun goodies in its accessory bundle, is highly tunable, and its price point is competitive."

"The ACX 3.0 cooler here is very efficient and keeps the card completely quiet and temp maxxing out at 75c at load, which is fantastic to see with the card boosting to 1936MHz on its own."

Recommended - Fudzilla

"The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW is fast graphics card, and our conclusion is short. Go for it if you can afford it, with this horse you can win any race."

Recommended - Hexus

"We increased the core speed to +105MHz and memory to +520MHz. The end result was a consistent boost speed of 2,062MHz across a trio of benchmarks. Showing how similar overclocking performance is amongst GTX 1080s, especially using our methodology of not increasing the voltage, the EVGA took top spot..."

Golden Bear Award - Bjorn3D

"The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 is highly over engineered, heavy overkill, and Geekalicious."
AwesomeSauce Networks

- AwesomeSauce Networks

"Overall though this is a feature packed card that checks all the boxes for what an aftermarket card should be"

- Bit-Tech

"What you do get is a respectable factory core overclock, a well made and good looking card, and a premium cooling solution that makes good use of its slightly boosted size to remain very quiet in all situations. The extra power circuitry credentials may appeal to some as well, and the RGB lighting and exclusive features in Precision XOC are neat too. Ultimately, the GTX 1080 FTW makes a compelling case for you to opt for it instead of the similarly priced Founders Edition"
HiTech Legion

Editor's Choice - HiTech Legion

"All overclocks were achieved using EVGA Precision XOC which I feel is one of the best laid out and through overclocking tools in the industry. It is laid out very well and easy to use, all its functions can be found in the GUI without guessing what tab to click to get you where you want to be, OSD always works, fan options actually set the correct fan curves and voltage regulation is simple and undaunted. Compared to other OC tools even with other manufacturers cards for personal use I have always found myself reverting back to Precision X. ACX 3.0 Cooling with RGB LED is one of the most efficient cooling systems on the market and the RGB will make your case as happy as a pig in … (well you know). The EVGA 1080 FTW comes with one of the highest factory overclocked GPUs in its price point. At this time no other single GPU on the market can outperform the GTX 1080."

"All things considered, EVGA has built a very nice card around the 1080 with an effective cooler and some extra value features above what you get with the Founder's Edition"
Babel Tech Reviews

- Babel Tech Reviews

"We have no trouble giving a big recommendation to the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW ACX 3.0. At $679 it looks great, runs cool and is very quiet, and its out of the box performance is higher than the Founders Edition of the GTX 1080 which costs $20 more."

- TechSource

"In conclusion the FTW Edition is a beast of a card, it's well made, aesthetically pleasing, extremely quiet and comes with the RGB LED feature..."

"Overclocking performance was better than expected. I used the familiar EVGA PrecisionX to overclock this video card and was able to get the GTX 1080 Classified it to run at 2100Mhz core and 5500Mhz memory with a +110Mhz gain over the base clock."

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0 - Back to top


Top Honors and Editors Choice - LAN OC

"It’s a great card and I think it is an improvement in every way over the Founders Edition 1070 that is priced at the same price point. I wouldn’t say that about any of the other GTX 1070’s as I normally feel like the Founders Editions do typically stand out in quality even though their cooling and overall performance isn’t as good. The EVGA cards this generation seem to be the cards to beat!"

Recommended - Guru3D

"The force is strong with the SC Gaming edition as it offer really nice aesthetics and runs totally silent whilst keeping that GPU nicely chilled at the 70 Degrees C marker."
Tech powerUp

Editor's Choice - Tech powerUp

"if you compare the EVGA GTX 1070 SC to the Founders Edition, it's definitely the better deal. You will save 10 bucks and gain amazing noise and temperature levels and no thermal throttling."
HiTech Legion

Gold - HiTech Legion

"Speaking of the fan noise from the ACX 3.0 cooler on the 1070 the noise level during gaming was completely muffled by a case and I did not notice an increase in system noise under normal loads. The temperatures of the 1070 also remained well within limits not exceeding 72 degrees when letting the card automatically manager temperatures. I did test the card at 100% fan speed as I always like to in order to gauge how loud a cooler is. In this instance the noise level was still at a comfortable level."

- Tested

"I personally feel it's worth waiting for a GTX 1070. The GTX 1070 consumes less power and includes more graphics memory than previous generation gaming cards (though the Titan X does offer 12GB). It's likely the GTX 1070 will outperform last generation cards in newer games as those arrive on the scene. So unless you're in dire need of a new graphics card, hold onto your wallet and wait for GTX 1070 availability to loosen up."

Performance / High End - MadShrimps.be

"With the GeForce 1070 SuperClocked edition, EVGA has proven that it is able to create one of the best looking cards on the market, by incorporating the efficient and quiet ACX 3.0 cooling system which also stands out thanks to the LED lighting system. Until the card is reaching about 53 degrees Celsius, the fans will stay completely off in order to provide absolute silence while working in a 2D environment; also, being a SuperClocked variant means that the card has been tweaked from the factory with higher clocks than stock Nvidia cards and also features quite a big overclocking headroom as we have seen from our tests."

- JayZ2Cents

"I was able to achieve 2169MHz stable at stock voltage, which pushed it well beyond the TITANX at a much lower price point"

"The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Superclocked is an impressive card. Not only does it have a better cooler and has a higher clock than the Founders Edition, the noise levels are very impressive even when we compare it to other custom cards. Under load it only produces 33 dB(A), making it one of the quietest cards of this caliber that we have ever tested. At the same time the cooling efficiency is excellent as well"

Recommended - Hexus

"In the premium end of the market, EVGA's £430 GeForce GTX 1070 FTW offers excellence in almost all areas. Build quality is solid throughout, the cooler performs admirably, there's a healthy core overclock right out of the box, and if aesthetics are a concern for your next PC, this is one of the best-looking interpretations we've seen."

- minimalistik

"This version has RGB LEDs in the cooler shroud which can be controlled by EVGA's Precision XOC software, which I must say is a great feature as it helps this card match any setup theme...as you can see this 1070 absolutely destroys my 970 in every test. "


"As you can see from the results in the graphic above, this card cut through the benchmarks like a lightsaber through a blastdoor. We even got playable framerates all the way up to 4K. Considering this card costs a mere $10 more than the stock-clocked Founder’s Edition, this beast is a heck of a deal. - See more at: https://www.computerpoweruser.com/article/23556/review-evga-geforce-gtx-1070-ftw-gaming-acx-30#sthash.hcOG8zxf.dpuf"

"the GTX 1060 SC is head and shoulders above the other 1060’s I’ve tested. To add to that, it actually has a lower MSRP."

- Geek3D

"For around USD $260 (price on EVGA website), you get a powerful graphics card that is able to run all videogames at fullHD resolutions with max settings while keeping the power consumption to a reasonable value. The GTX 1060 is between the GTX 970 and the GTX 980 in the performance side. The card is quiet at idle while some noise is produced under load which should not be a problem in a PC case."

Good Value - BabelTechReviews

"If you are buying a fast video card right now and looking for good performance for a better than entry-level VR or for maxed out 1920×1080 or even higher resolution gaming, the EVGA GTX 1060 SC is an excellent choice"
HiTech Legion

Gold - HiTech Legion

"The bottom line for the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC is that it is a really great offering for the price. At $259.99 you get a graphics card that outpaces the GTX 980 from the previous generation and supports all the newest features."

- Jayz2Cents

"But if just want a single graphics card that can absolutely blow the doors off of triple A titles at 1080p or 1440p on high or max settings, it does it quiet, efficient, and pretty much silent."

"The EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW+ proves to be a strong card for those playing many of the latest games like Gears of War 4 or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It also shows that it plays well with older titles that demand a lot from a graphics card, such as Rise of the Tomb Raider and Crysis 3. It’s definitely a smart option for anyone looking to play maximum settings at 1080p, and even then most of these tested games reach a frame rate in the 70s and 80s with those settings."
