Runs anything I throw at it.
Pros: It has 12gb. Mem temps don't go higher than 65 degrees because gigabyte applied thermal pads to the back of the metal plate on the 12gb 3080's unlike the 10gb version. 4k gaming temps are low 60's. Fans are quiet and cooling is excellent. Factory applied thermal compound is of high quality, and the thermals pads on the front and back of the backplate are also high quality. Minimal RGB. No coil whine. No gpu sag.
Cons: PCB flex Fan connector cables are low quality and nearly impossible to remove. How long does it take for newegg to post my review?
Overall Review: Ditch the default fan curve to keep the card running cool.
