Gigabyte's GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC is a factory-overclocked custom-design variant of the GeForce RTX 3070. It comes with a large power limit increase, and temperatures are still much better than with the NVIDIA RTX 3070 Founders Edition.

Something wrong to RPM/noise for that card.

Yeah, it seems the RPM and the dBA should be the other way around between the silent and OC BIOSes. Both in the table and the graphical chart. And the table has been replicated like that between all the 3070 articles.

Also, shouldn't both BIOSes have the same temperature for Idle/Fan Stop?

And the "performance per dollar" page is broken, it shows this card at 100%, and all the others at 0%, in all charts.

All fixed, thanks! Also updated the table in the other reviews.

Good news for the man on the street. NVIDIA after the most recent positive benchmarking reports is now extensively marketing the RTX 3070 (base price $499) against the previous flagship RTX 2080ti once a $1,200 kingpin card then accessible only to people with high disposble incomes or the lucky few. For me driving a forklift on the third shift it's all about the $499 it cost now for a base 3070 and the performance it brings to the table. It's hard to figure out NVIDIA and why they would drop a new generation 3070 on the market (with its measurable muscle) and then at far less than 'half of the cost' for what enthusiasts had to fork over earlier for a 2080ti. With this NVIDIA now has given me hope, logical reasoning and a dream in now finally owning a used 2080ti for at least half of the cost of a base 3070. A blue collar worker dream come true. Meanwhile of course I will be 'chucking along' on my hobbled-together ($250) Dell XPS 730x H2C compliments from the Bangladesh PC shop. I am still playing 2009 Wolfenstein and modded Silent Hunter III. Just perhaps my 2080ti train along with' Metro Exodus' will come around by early 2021 so that I can greet the Aurora crew at Novosibirsk station in maximum settings? Madhu confirmed that the used 1080ti/2080ti series market (many crytocurrency based) is already heating up and noted that when I see him at the next computer show that cash is king just like in Mumbai. Well with hard earned cash in hand the Bangladesh boys my even throw-in a copy of Fallout 4 long on my list to own and to play.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I didn't mean the 6 and 8-pin pci-e connectors shown here - https://www.techpowerup.com/review/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-3070-gaming-oc/images/power.jpg

I meant these single-row connectors that get adapted on the backplate- https://www.techpowerup.com/review/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-3070-gaming-oc/images/cooler4.jpg

It seems like this molex micro-fit 3.0 is the right receptacle, but I wondered if you could confirm - https://www.molex.com/molex/products/part-detail/crimp_housings/0436450800
