EVGA GTX 960 SuperSC SweetSpot Plus Style

Final Thoughts & Conclusion

Award_GoldThe EVGA GTX 960 SSC packs one of the best factory overclocks we’ve seen so far and it’s scores proved it providing all the Maxwell technology at an affordable $210 price range. We can’t wait to get a couple of these in SLI and see what the numbers look like. The EVGA GTX 960’s smart fan design and straight heatpipes combined with all the technology EVGA tucked under the black cowling makes for a formidable GTX 960 card.  There are cards out there with fancier cowlings and a little sleeker looks but we doubt they pack the performance of this highly factory overclocked EVGA GTX 960 and in the end it comes down to performance.

The EVGA GTX 960 SSC packs a powerful pile of technology into a power sipping design, then leave it to EVGA to work around the power limit imposed on Maxwell GPU’s by hollowing out some headroom from the fan voltage. The ACX 2.0+ silent fan technology is a welcome addition to the lab, fans spinning to a stop delivering sweet silence sure doesn’t hurt our feelings. The double ceramic ball bearings and 4x longer lifespan are like money in the bank to a guy that’s purchased a dozen or so fans off EBay to replace worn out fans. The memory Mosfet Cooling Plate (MMCP) insures your mosfets stay cooler for additional overclocking headroom and in short the EVGA GTX 960 not only performs well but also keeps the serious overclocker in mind,

9.4

The EVGA GTX 960 has that kind of quiet style of an era gone by. Instead of a Bikini cowling with flimsy plastic it sports a full cowling and under that cowling it packs a plethora of technology.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.

  1. I hate it when amateur overclockers are worried about the lifespan of their card, and are afraid to adjust the voltage….
    Good for you the 8800gt is still alive.. now go play doom with it

    • Actually we get paid to OC and to OV equipment and we do it very well making us the professional OCers. You on the other hand have no world records and don’t get paid making you the rank amateur. OCing is for when you need that boost, and yes there is a trend to 24/7 OCing and there are also reports of 24/7 overclockers experiencing twice the failure rate of equipment of moderate use overclockers. Then the Overvolters like you try and foist your burnt up trash on innocent people on Ebay. My XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog sold for $100 all these years later and the guy Running SLI 8800GT retro SLI will enjoy his vintage rig for years. Haven’t you heard bro Old is gold, well except in your case old is just trash.

      • Zomg. This is the best response I’ve seen on a review ever. A lengthy review and all he could do was whine about OV. As to the 8800, pretty sure there’s someone in this house playing WoW on one.

  2. Enjoyed your review. Keep up the good work. Thanks.
