Personaly i love the on board display of EVGA and i use it alot in your situation my friend, We are in the same boat. I use a tech station aswell mine is mounted on my wall at eye level so i see my display 24/7 but keep in mind that temp readout will only read Tcase temps that is the temp of your(IHS) Heat spreader. and when it comes to 920's and 930's it should not exceed 67c. This readout is not
As far as EVGA vs. Gigabyte? I can't really comment but i can say when it comes to EVGA customer service EVGA is 2nd to none!
For Example when my story started "Very short version"
I started with a E758 ($269.99 Fry's) In which had a very isolated incident two boards back to back "A bad and unknown Bios" which caused damage to cpu. Well not only did JacobF "Jacob Freeman" manage to give me a chance to send in damaged processor for a replacement but he also gave me a Classified E760 ($419.99) as a replacement of the E758 in question.
Even though i lost my mind
a couple of times in the process. It's due time that jacob gets the recognition he deserves in this topic.
Thank you eVGA and JacobF for the professionalism.
