The GPU shroud and the backplate are all-black and all metal. Just like the MSI Gaming X GTX 1070, this uses dual fan-dual slot design. Despite the metal design, the card is lighter (by the feel of it) compared to Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme. The graphic card is 11.10” long and 5.03” wide. There is a three-point LED under each fan. unfortunately, this is a red LED light.
The graphic card has lots of cut-outs and vents. Galax didn’t provide any indicator for the PCIe power connection.
This PCIe 3.0 card takes power from an eight-pin and six-pin PCIe cable and has an SLI interface.
The GPU shroud can be removed from the GPU cooler without removing it from the PCB. There is this small multicolored ‘GeForce GTX’ logo on the side, but it looks pretty small and out of place in my opinion.
Judging by the design, the GALAX GTX 1070 EXOC has two nickel-plated copper heatpipes. The video outputs are of the same just like its founder’s edition.
