KFA2 GeForce GTX 1070 EX OC 8GB Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2016-09-20

The GeForce GTX 1070 EX OC board from KFA2 impressed us positively regarding the overall build quality, factory overclocking levels, while the dual 100mm fans keep the board cool while keeping minimum noise levels. The manufacturer has also thought of enthusiasts who like to keep their systems hardware visible during operation via case windows, so the fans along with the GeForce GTX logo are LED lighted; the logo can be further customized via the supplied Xtreme Tuner Plus utility. One other important aspect to point out is that the KFA GeForce GTX 1070 EX OC 8GB video card is one of the most affordable cards on the market with custom cooling, with the same GPU.
