An absolutely wonderful GPU. This cards eats every recent games for breakfast quite easily, it is a very solid build and easy to install. The XC Ultra is quite bulky, taking up 3 slots rather than the usual 2 due to the larger heatsink. You will get slightly better temps with the Ultra as a result. By default, the fans also only start spinning once a certain temperature is reached, allowing it to be used at 0 RPM when doing other tasks that are less intensive.
EVGA Precision X1, the software for modifying the LEDs on the card as well as monitoring or setting up curves, works fairly well and is easy to navigate. Do note that the card needs X1, and not XOC, as the latter will not allow you to change anything on the card.
EVGA has always been my go-to brand for nVidia cards and they once again did not disappoint.
