    Slightly ot, but I've always wondered why they put so much over the top detail on the portion of the casing that, in the vast majority of builds, is facing down, and is pretty much the least visible part of the card - especially in SLI or Xfire (where appropriate) installs.

    On topic - does anyone have any experience with Inno3D? It's a company that I don't think I've actually seen any press on here in the US.

    Inno 3D's been going for a good long time in the EU, never heard anything particularly good or bad about them mind you. Personally wouldn't avoid them but if there was another vendor about the same price I'd probably go with them if they had the brand tbh

    AFAIK Inno3D is one of those rare and small independent vendors that doesn't fall under any monster group (like Palit or PC Partner), Inno3D are similar to Club3D in that way. I've used a couple of Inno3D cards in the past and not had any major issues, but they were low-end cards (we're talking a while ago as well, the 8500GT and 8800GTX).

    Typically you'll find Inno3D stuff isn't that adventurous, they normally always reskin a Nvidia reference PCB with a custom cooler since they don't have a big enough sales base or development team to go full custom on their own PCB and VRM design. However, there's nothing wrong with the reference board and its custom coolers are often pretty good, sometimes OTT, so they are a reasonable choice.

    Pricing is going to depend on how good stock is for each country. In the UK Overclockers mainly stock them and, taking the GTX 980 as an example, they have models ranging from £450 for the entry up to £600 for the flagship watercooled model. That makes them cost competitive with other brands, like EVGA for example, the only real question you'd have to ask yourself is about the customer service and I honestly haven't heard that much (good or bad). All I know is that if you buy through someone like OCUK they normally handle returns and RMAs for Inno3D so that's something worth considering.

    First video card I ever bought with my own money was Inno3D, a GeForce 3 Ti 200. I could play Dungeon Siege in the godlike resolution of 1280x1054. It lasted me a good while and was perfectly decent.

    I currently have their entry-level GTX 980 card, which is perfectly fine. I may have just got lucky but I can use Afterburner to boost it to 1500 at around 75-80 degrees, depending on how hot it is outside. Runs very well, I've had it do several hours of Fire Strike at that speed without issue. It does get noisy if you turn the fan up manually while overclocking, but leaving everything at stock the fan never gets up to that kind of speed and manages things just fine.

    Also, it was available for £399 at the time (beginning of December), which now seems like some kind of crazy bargain.

    Customer service, I don't know, I've only had these two cards from them and they've been perfect. If OcUK is handling it I had a very good experience with their customer service folks when building this machine. It was a very clear-cut problem (RAM sold as 4x8GB sticks of DDR4 but when it arrived was 8x4GB sticks) so I guess it may be not so good if there's an actual dispute, but the guy I spoke to understood straight away, looked through to see if there was an alternative, offered a refund, and didn't blink when I first said I'd keep them then changed my mind shortly afterwards. A pleasure to deal with, which I wasn't expecting from the horror stories I'd heard.

    That's the bit that review sites/box covers/e-tailers show images of, so you probably look at photos of that bit of the card more than you look at the top of the card when mounted in your case
