If you're going to pay more for better cooling you may as well go the whole hog and get a water-cooled card.
The idea that somebody should pay an extra £150 for a horrible bulky AIO hybrid card or hundreds for a custom water loop in lieu of paying an extra £25 for a better air cooler is complete nonsense. Having owned many, many (many) graphics cards, there is a huge gap between the best and worst air coolers, both in terms of temperatures and acoustics. Paying more doesn't always get you something better, but it usually does when comparing the very cheapest models on the market to the ones slightly above them.

To use this specific example, the Dual model uses a much smaller heatsink and cheaper, smaller fans (90mm vs 100mm) which don't stop when the card is idle (despite that feature being advertised on the product page and Palit's own site). It also reportedly gets bit noisier than the larger JetStream/GameRock models under load, which are considered the quietest cards on the market full stop. It also lacks direct cooling for the memory chips and a backplate, as well as using a cheaper, smaller PCB. Although the benefits of any of those things can be debated.

Personally, if I was spending £350 on a graphics card anyway, I'd pay the extra £25 and get the GameRock model for the quieter operation both at idle and at load alone. Others may not care and be happy to save any money they can. That's up them I suppose.

2011 is just the original date I created the post. I update it every 3 to 6 months, the last time I updated it was 30th August 2016 as shown at the bottom of the original post, so it's very up to date. ;)

Scan are abit crap when it comes to RMA process, especially graphics cards. Scan will most likely ship it off to Hong Kong and forget about it. If you haven't received it back from repair/replacement within 28 days, you can chase them up and they will most likely offer you a similar product or the value divded by how much warranty is left. So as an example of 12 months left: 349.99 / 24 * 12 = £174.99 payable back to you.

I think this is a good deal, so gave it heat. By the way, don't let what I mentioned above put you off buying this card, it's a really good deal. Chances are, a graphics card will most likely malfunction within the first 28 days of use, if that happens you will be well within your rights to request a brand new replacement or a full refund.

I usually stick to EVGA, Gigabyte or MSI, but as shown below the best warranties offered are by the ones in Green. Depends how much you value cost over warranty.

Looks like it is just a different fan cooling system - not convinced it's worth an extra £40 just to have fans that turn in different directions though:
"The 1070 JetStream graphics card features dual fans that rotate in opposite ditrections. This 10CM-10CM Smart Fan system roatates the adjacent fans in different directions to reduce airflow conflicts in the 1070, and effectively improving the overall cooling performance. "

The smelling pistakes are quoted directly from the Scan site!

If you're going to pay more for better cooling you may as well go the whole hog and get a water-cooled card.

I bought a Gigabyte Gaming G1 1070, had to reorganise my HDDs and all the cables to fit this card in. If you have a Mid tower, good luck guys, it was a pain in the backside for me. I can still hear some of the cables being grinded by one of the three fans. Let's hope they're not too hungry... :)

Does anyone know what the difference between this and the Jetstream version is? (£390)
Jetstream has a better cooler, but also takes more slots - 2.5 (i assume this means 3 slots are unuseable) vs 2 for the regular card according to the Palit website.

Since the clock speeds are the same between the two cards, you probably wouldn't see much if any difference in overclocking, as Palit are likely speed binning chips for the "Super Jetstream" version.

Is this worth going for.. I am coming from a 970 sli setup. But lately sli has proved worthless.. Directx12 support is still awful. So want to swap them out for the powerful single card. Been look at the EVGA card but this is over £70 cheaper 8)
Never bought a Palit, cant imagine their is much difference between brands but I need reassurance for piece of mind :)
I will be gaming at 1440p @ 60 fps, with every option cranked up :)

Sli is still pointless? Crap. I just bought a 1440p 144hz monitor and was thinking of getting two 1080's to try to push the monitor. Is SLI really that bad then?

Is there nothing that can push a 1440p monitor to 144hz on ultra settings at the moment then?
#21
At least my monitor is future proof lol

I struggle to find many modern titles that uses sli or dx12 multi gpu. GTA V pushed my cards the best.
With all the "ports" happening of console games, i doubt it will be implemented.

SLI really depends on the software. Imho, i'ts not worth it but that's just my two cents. :)
#24
So the money is best spent on a single Titan X... or 1080 ti when it comes out in january. Still... I doubt that will do 1440p at 144hz

I wonder what other people are doing to game at that speed. Just lowering settings?? Seems crazy considering the price of all the kit involved.

#28

Nvidia are terrible at updating the website. It's the same with surround and 3d profiles, you just can't rely on that information unfortunately.
SLI works with the majority of titles but there are notable exceptions and scaling will vary, so go into with your eyes open.
Don't expect any SLI or Crossfire support from DX12. I know mgpu is a feature but from a development point of view it's a minority requirement so don't buy 2 cards expecting full scale support.

I've run a Palit 770GTX 4GB for a number of years, not had any issues running 3 monitors (1 3440x1440 and 2 1600x1200) as well as an Oculus Rift. Really annoying, it can run the Rift with no issues apart from the warning at the start which says the card is below minimum spec.

There's a 380 4GB on eBay at the moment at £112 with just under two days left. On the OcUK forum, they go for around £90 inc P&P.

Appreciate the response, looks like i'll keep this card for another year, as I don't see myself spending an extra £250 for that upgrade. 100fps will just have to wait :(

Edit - Just seen that offer you were on about on ebay, will see what the final price it sells for, if it goes for £140ish I might try selling mine for that much as it would be a strong indicator.
