Beastly card, huge heatsink keeps temperatures below 80 degrees even with both in SLI.

Wow, this card is a beast in every way. Firstly, it's huge and weighs in at a whopping 1.4kg. But my ASRock K6 holds it in place just fine. I looks awesome through my case window.
As for performance, its heavyweight there as well just smashing whatever I throw at it on max settings @ 1080p; Elite Dangerous 140+ fps on Ultra. DCS Word 140+fps on high/ultra, Sniper Elite 3 200+ fps on Ultra, you get the idea. Though I've heard they OC great I've honestly not even felt like I need to.
The fans keep the unit very cool under load and currently I've barely seen it pass 50°C by more than a degree or two even whole loaded up to eyeballs at 98-99%.
The RGB is nice while not being garish, though I ditched the Zotac software to use MSI Afterburner, so I'm glad I set colours I liked before that as I now can't alter them unless I download Zotac's GPU software suite again. Oh well.
If you want a GTX1070 that looks as beefy as the performance it provides, then look no further, this is the Giant Processing Unit for you.

TL;DR: If you want an industrial styled card that runs amazingly, if you're into overclocking, or if you want people to say 'HOLY * look at the size of your card!', than get it.
Biggest, baddest card on the market. The overall design of the front is very professional, with glossy carbon fiber designs and matte metal accents and the dual fan blade design that stands out from every other card. Although it kind of reminds me of a running shoe box, the backplate is well styled with the 'POWER BOOST solid state capacitor' (I think that's what it is anyway) and the illuminated 'PUSH THE LIMIT' logo. I love the industrial look of this card. This card is a giant, at nearly 13 inches long this is definitely a 2.5 slot card. The cooler on this thing runs very well, as I can't get the card over 60C in stress tests and I can't hear it over ambient until it gets to about 50%.

Ginormous card which requires two 8-pin power connectors. For some reason it doesn't perform as well as I though it would. According to benchmarks I've looked at, its supposed to run at around 150 FPS Ultra settings at 1080p in Battlefield 4, but I'm sitting at around 100, constantly dropping to 60. The fans sometimes stop running, even when in game which is quite worry some. The LED configuration is laughable, as they do have a strobe light mode and the color variation is abysmal. Do not buy this card.
