You can buy a new GTX 970 for around this price which is almost as quick as the GTX 980, So this isn't really a deal..

Not really, I have the msi and it's an awesome card. As is the Asus and EVGA

That's a ridiculous statement to make nearly all the other brands are just as good, even the cheaper one's have impressed in reviews and benchmarks.

I have the Palit Jetstream 970 and its a monster card some people dont half talk ****.

If you already have one of these, it's good value for an SLI setup. Heat from me

Don't understand why they bother making reference cooler high spec cards. If someone (such as myself) is willing to drop £200+ on a GPU, you can be sure I'll be willing to pay a little extra for a good cooler.

Mainly its due to that the reference cooler is an exhaust blower so it will push the hot air out of the case (great for small builds) where most custom coolers keep the card at a lower temp they output the heat from the card into the case and then your other fans are used to push it out. So if you are running a matx or itx build or if your case is a potato then the best solution is a reference cooler!

...or if someone wants to go WC route... Why pay extra for a fancy air pusher if even a simplest water loop will outperform it easily...

Reference coolers are actually normally more expensive than custom ones but obviously you want the reference pcb most of the time.

Not really, historically they have always been the cheapest cards you could buy. This only changed when nvidia bought out the titan which is using the same cooler that this card is. Reason being it's a decent stock cooler, well made and ideal for sli setups.

Exactly, small builds with limited airflow increase overall system heat with open style 3rd party coolers. As for the gigabyte being superior it's louder and doesn't have much benefit in performance from reviews. On top of which the msi golden edition cools even better than the gaming edition.
