Fast, Small, and Hot

ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11GB GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card DUAL-RTX2080TI-O11G

Pros: - It's small enough to fit my Corsair 280X case with room to breath. Does take up more space than I thought but that's ok I can still access a few things I need so I'm ok with that. - Configuration is easy and setup was painless. - If the temps are too hot for your liking you can change the settings at least I have custom profiles for better fan curves and dial down the power input based on the temp. (It's insanely easy to swap profiles while gaming I haven't not had issues doing so when I want high FPS on BF5 for a little bit)

Cons: - This card will sag it's heavy for sure I made a small prop up using some straws and electrical tape to give it a lift. - Default settings with heavy load runs hot like instant 80C temps consistently. - GPU Tweak will need to apply your custom setting on startup other wise it will revert back to default "Gaming" setting which will run hot. I suggest you install it and configure it to startup and apply the profile you want on startup. - GPU Tweak OSD crashes some games and will close applications like discord when turned on. FYI their is a blacklist you can setup but it took me a little to figure that out so expect turning on the OSD feature to close your game or some apps running.

Overall Review: - If you don't mind taking the time to setup a custom profile for lower temps sure. - 100% power at 85C temp but I found it just stays at 80C while heavy gaming at least. - I set 2 custom profiles one for 55% power at around 70C temps and another for 80% and 77C temps I find the lower one seems to work just fine for long WoW sessions. 80% does get loud and temps climb but it does it's job and I honestly don't notice a big drop in FPS running ultra settings. I've notice some weird sounds like a fuzzing audio is playing but I think it's just the fans they do get loud at higher speeds. - Gaming mode is a power house and plays BF 5 great at ultra but will stay at 80C pretty much the whole time. - The low db mode is nice fans don't run under temp threshold but only expect while idle and web browsing/watching youtube. Put any game on I was seeing roughly a low of 55C to a steady 64C - 70C climbs. - I highly suggest you use GPU Tweak and configure a lower power input profile it's easy to configure and create profiles to play with and switch them is easier. At least you can control how hot and fast this card runs.
