A Closer Look
EVGA went with their classic grey and white two fan design found on their FTW2 models and it’s suitable for smaller chassis but still gives the full 1070 Ti performance.
Standing up the card just extrudes that feeling of EVGA quality and GTX 1070 Ti power.
Looking down on the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB FTW2 GAMING you see the EVGA Logo model and FTW2 designation. You get a peek at the power connectors but we will get in closer on those in a minute.
Getting to the I/O plate you have the DVI-D, 3 Display Port, and an HDMI as well as some large heat exhaust holes.
Here’s that close up of the two 8-pin PCIe power connectors that provide 150W each and of course the PCIe slot provides 75W so the card has 350W incoming power but a rated TDP of 235W for normal operation so we are sure EVGA packed it with enough power to sustain a good OC.
The cards fan side clearly shows it’s an ICX model which we love and the sharp grey and white with those double ball bearing fans don’t hurt our feelings any.
The backplate comes in two sections and as we mentioned earlier we read the temperature of the backplate running Kombuster Furry Doughnut we read 65oC on the stock fan profile.
We flipped the card so you could get a look at the logo and all the heat removal holes in the backplate.
Peeking at the rear of the card we see some 6mm heat pipes and what looks to be a larger heatpipe perhaps an 8mm or 10mm.
Lastly, we got in close to the fans and the ICX logo and looking at the fins which are both “L” shape for greater contact and narrow to accelerate airflow across the heatsink.
