Packaging

If you haven’t seen a Gigabyte video card box before the large eye on the cover could make some people uncomfortable while it stares at you. Personally I think it is just looking at me waiting for me to put my new card in my pc and get to gaming. Along with the eye, on the front of the packaging we have all of the important information noting that this is the GTX 760, it is overclocked, and it does have the windforce cooler on it. For everything else you will need to flip the box over. The back has a large section dedicated to showing you what windforce cooling is all about. Beyond that there really is just a small feature listing that is repeated in multiple languages as well as a box with details on PCI Express 3.0.

Inside you will find a second box, it is inside that box that you will find the GTX 760 sitting in surrounded by foam for protection. There is something about opening up boxes like this with the card in the middle like a big jewel that reminds me of Indiana jones every single time. Up under the card you will also find a driver disk, a quick guide, and two adapter cables (one dual Molex to 6-pin and the other dual Molex to 8-pin).

as an owner of a gtx670 windforce card, noise of fans at 100% is not an issue. Even with my card overclocked to 1250mhz gpu and 6.8ghz memoory, mine rarely ever tops 50% on fans or gets over 70c. You listed it as a con to the card the noise level at 100%, frankly it will never get there, less he person has some serious case venting issues.
for a 760, windforce cooler might be a bit overkill. from tip of the rear bracket to end of the cooler is like 11inch's so its not a small card.

"But the cooling power of the card means that unless you set the fans to 100% yourself you will most likely never have to worry about that."

Yeah I agree, I mentioned the same thing in the review. But I mention it because some people like to turn up their fan speed manually, and if they do they its going to be noisier than the other GTX 760's tested.
