EVGA Z170 Classified K - Back to top

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

"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."

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"

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."

"…this is the most efficient PSU we have tested so far and probably the best in the 850W category."

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."

"I defy you to find something to complain about here, because I can't think of anything. The user guide is decent, the cables are good, the connector counts are fantastic, the unit's fully modular, we have no Bergs where they shouldn't be, semi-fanless mode works fine and can be disabled... the list goes on"

EVGA SC17 Gaming Laptop - Back to top

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."

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 HYBRID GAMING - Back to top

Legit Reviews

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."

Tweak Town

Best Performance - Tweak Town

"EVGA's new GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 is one of the best-looking GP104-powered cards on the market right now, with some stellar performance and silent cooling."
Tech of Tomorrow

"...This card runs great, seems like the cooling technology on it is doing a solid job and at the end of the day for those folks out there who don't want a founders edition card the FTW might be just what you're looking for."
PC World

"This is the GeForce GTX 1080 you’ve been waiting for. The EVGA GTX 1080 FTW puts EVGA's personal touch on Nvidia’s beastly card, and it's a winner, from its high base clock and custom cooling to its extra 8-pin power connection."
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..."

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."

"Try as I might, I cannot find a fault with the GTX 1080 Founders Edition. It runs quiet. It overclocks good. It is the fastest enthusiast video card on the planet right now."

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


- JayZ2Cents

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

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."

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."

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!"

EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING - Back to top


- 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."
