A great blower card!

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card TURBO-GTX1080TI-11G

Pros: - Blows heat out the back of the case - Seems to run cooler than FE cards.

Cons: - The fan is loud when you crank it up to anything above about 60%

Overall Review: If you're running a hot system, this is one of the best cards to install. It uses a blower style fan which cools the card by blowing air through the card and out the back of the case. I can place my hand in the case next to this card and the only heat I feel is if I touch the back of the card. I highly recommend it if you're buying these up for multi-gpu systems.

A great card!

Pros: - Cheapest multi-fan card available - White colour is neutral and will compliment many different themes in your case - It's a GTX 1080ti!

Cons: - On one card, on of the fans was hitting a shroud when I first powered it on. I had to adjust the fan mount to stop this. - When using multiple cards, the LED lighting doesn't synchronize. - Multiple cards in the same system get quite hot and thermal throttle.

Overall Review: I purchased three of these cards for a dedicated Folding@Home rig. They're producing exactly what I expected them to do. These cards have three fans on them, which is more than adequate for cooling in a single card rig. SLI would still stay cool as long as you have a three slot gap between the cards, to allow for air flow. I have three cards in one system, so one card has a gap, but the two other cards are side by side. As a result, I experienced thermal throttling, forcing me to run the fans at 100%, in addition to having multiple case fans to dump the heat out of the case. If you're going to run in SLI, or in a setup similar to mine, make sure that your case has extremely good airflow. I have a Thermaltake Core X9 case, which is huge, but allows for so many fans that I'm able to draw as much heat as possible out of the case until I can order and build a custom water loop. Overall, this is a great card, at a great price point. I highly recommend it.
