Most Critical Review

Bought because my EVGA 1080 ti hybrid was really quiet...

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-2384-KR, 11GB GDDR6, HYBRID, RGB LED Logo, Metal Backplate

Pros: It's fast...

Cons: But it's definitely not quiet. The pump has a high-pitched and annoying whine that EVGA support considers normal. The whine occurs at all times equally. While they did offer to RMA it, I don't see the point if this is "normal".

Overall Review: If you only game, or only wear head phones, this might be tolerable, for any "quiet" system the whine will drive you crazy.

Not very quiet

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-6598-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & LED, iCX Technology - 9 Thermal Sensors

Pros: - fast

Cons: - big con: the radiator fan RPM is not controllable, so it runs at full speed at all times. This is a flaw of the evga 1080 hybrid as well. As a result the card is fairly loud even at idle (by far the loudest component in my system).

Overall Review: - Buy the MSI hybrid if you care about quiet.
