GIGABYTE AORUS Xtreme GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce 11GD, GV-N108TAORUSXW-11GD
GIGABYTE AORUS Xtreme GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce 11GD, GV-N108TAORUSXW-11GD

Pros: I'm just saying this is a sexy card. The design is great and performs fantastic.

Cons: Not really a problem, but you could slightly hear the water running through the radiator. Once the side panels are on, you can't hear it.

Overall Review: With SLI build becoming less and less predominate, it shows why with these new 10x series cards

So easy to install

Pros: Runs very quiet.... currently reading at idle temps of 29 degrees Celsius, under load it hits about 50 degrees Celsius

Cons: Each model graphics card has its own caveats when installing

Overall Review: Other than that, quiet as hell and HUGE... unless you're running an extended ATX you might be only able to run dual sli

Great Stuff

Cooler Master Nepton 280L - All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 280mm Radiator and 2 JetFlo Fans
Cooler Master Nepton 280L - All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 280mm Radiator and 2 JetFlo Fans

Pros: Idle running at 18 degrees Celsius in a room that 71 degrees.... pretty sexy. Install was dumb-foundingly easy.... the instructions are harder to read haha

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have this system mounting on the inside top of a Cosmos 2 case with the fan inside of the top bay screws the into the radiator from above, works beautifully. I wish the screws were longer for my configuration as I have to balance the fans on the radiator from hit the case... but this is just me.... I just applied some double sided spacers and we're good to go.
