excellent card!

Pros: I purchased two of these cards last year because I wanted to get into 4k gaming. Needless to say, it's a massive improvement and upgrade from my previous dual 970s. They run extremely well, don't get too hot when under load (max I've seen it get is 50°C). Battlefield 1 runs at a constant 60fps (I have a 60hz monitor), even during massive battles.

Cons: The only con is that dx12 isn't very well optimized for the card. I tried playing battlefield 1 with dx12 and it kept stuttering. I'm assuming it's just a software problem because dx11 is stupidly optimized for it.

Overall Review: When the price drops again, it's worth every penny to upgrade. I don't think the founders cards will come back in stock, but any 1080 for that matter will be worth it. I'm super happy with my purchase and now I won't have to worry about upgrading for the next few years at the least.

Good product

Pros: Fast
Cool Design
Runs cool ( does not cause too much heat)

Cons: Loud fans but not a problem if you play with headsets or with a stereo
High voltage requirement

Overall Review: Y'all need to stop saying its expensive, if you think its expensive, THEN DON'T BUY IT.
Also Shipping was late, but customer support from biddeal was very nice and after discussion with them we accelerated the shipping, I was planning to give 4 stars, but after support from biddeal, they deserve 5 stars.

Failed to work out of the box(Attempting RMA)

Pros: -None, See Cons and/or Other.

Cons: -Failed to work out of the box
-call center does not transfer to a live person during regular business hours. It instead sends you to voicemail or automated run around.
-I am attempting to RMA item or trouble shoot. How ever I cannot find proper troubleshooting or documentation for this card.
-I did check the motherboard(ASUS z170-e) with other graphics cards. The computer booted and work this this. I did contact my motherboard manufacturer and they reported I should contact PNY for support.
-I did attempt to use the GTX 180 FE graphics card with other computer setups that are similar or better. The card did not boot.

Overall Review: -I cannot recommenced this graphics card since it did not work out of the box.
-If troubleshooting/RMA work on fixing this issue. I will amend this review.

Great card, but know what you are getting into

Pros: It is a freaking gtx 1080! Runs fast and cool although temps will be different for most users (see Other). Personally I enjoy the look but that may be different for you.

Cons: Not a big deal but had I known about it I probably wouldn't buy it, but on the end of the card there are three random holes drilled into the cooler. Don't know why they are there but they look horrible and seem to have no use that I am aware of. Can be loud when the fan is turned up but I am used to loud fans but be aware of that.

Overall Review: I run my card on an open bench so my temps are lower than what most will get, but at 75% fan speed I don't go past about 65c in game. Unlike what others have said I have yet to see a splash screen for this card o.o also unlike others have said, the silver parts of the cooler are magnesium unlike what others have said. Overall it is a great card for me, but keep in mind fan noise, your case, and if you like the looks of the card before buying it.

You DON'T need SLI if you're only playing at 1080p... you will get well above 100fps on max

Cons: No cons at all, this card was the PERFECT upgrade from TWO, yes... TWO 4GB GTX 770's!

Overall Review: I tell you what... I am just blown away by the performance on one single card. It's almost like SLI on ONE card alone. Nearly every latest game you through at it runs at a very high FPS rate. I'm impressed NVIDIA.

Beast of card

Pros: -Powerful as hell, running everything maxed out at a minimum of 56fps
-Awesome build quality (duh founder's edition)
-Best GPU you can buy on the market
-Really good warranty from PNY (once you register it) says lifetime and from what I have read on forums from people who had to RMA other PNY products it seems that they remain true to their word and if they no longer manufacture the product they will replace it with a newer one so we will see if this remains a pro as time goes on
-Great card for QHD gaming
-Extreme overkill for 1080p (what I game on) but screw it no kill like overkill
-Very stable drivers for a new architecture and release
-Awesome overclock potential

Cons: -The rear blower fan gets really loud at boot up for some strange reason, but all of my fans do that so I'm not sure if it's the card's bios or my bios but it isn't something I'll deduct points for
-Ah NVIDIA why do all of your cards become rarer than gold at release? Seriously I got the very last one at my local Frysstore and literally had to run to it to beat some kid who was also looking to buy it
-Fan is louder than my last GPU but I don't mind since I have a loud surround sound speaker set up
-Runs a little bit hotter than my last GPU see other thoughts
-Overclocking is a little hindered due to the single 8 pin connector

Overall Review: So to the other reviewer who complained about the price tag of this card NVIDIA themselves said the founder's edition (previously known as reference cards) will now be priced higher due to the higher build quality standards they are now putting on manufacturers and well you are getting the best PCB (as far as I know) for this card if you do not plan on overclocking. Now there are a lot of things that I like about this card and I will say that if you are in the market for a PC upgrade and you're coming from 700 series or older and if your budget can reasonably afford it then get it you will not regret it since this is the performance jump that I have been waiting for. If you can't reasonable spend this much money or if you feel like you would have to max a credit card etc. then don't get it, especially if you only game at 1080p if you game at 1440p and you are in the market for a $400-600 card then wait for the non founder's edition cards to become more readily available. If your budget is below $500 then pick up a 980Ti if you want comparable performance but can't afford a 1080/1070 or don't want to wait for these cards to be more readily available (I have seen craigslist/3bay posts demanding over $800 for one 1080?! Seriously don't burn your money like that) then just get a 980Ti they are very cheap right now so jump on that opportunity before the price goes back to it's original MSRP.

It is solid, but PNY adds an annoying boot-up Splash Screen

Pros: - 3 year warranty after you register
- Fan isn't too loud or noticeable under 55%
- 2100MHz stable. 2126MHz benching. Always back the core down two notches (13MHz increments) after finding max stable core.

Cons: - I know people hate it when reviewers list the price as a con. I knew the price when I bought it, yes. However, $699 for a reference card 1080 is too much. At most, it should be $599-649.

- The cooler is plastic. All that silver that looks like metal is actually plastic. C'mon, Nvidia..

PNY Cons:
- Why on Earth did PNY enable the boot up splash screen for the GPU? When I power on the PC, it shows a PNY GTX 1080 boot up splash screen for 5 seconds. That's 5 seconds of my life I will never get back every time I turn on my PC now...

- They did a horrible job with the thermal paste. At 75% fan speed, it was hitting 84C. I turned it up to 100% fan speed and it dropped to 80C. After removing the cooler, I saw why. There was barely any thermal paste on it. For a GPU, you want thermal paste making FULL coverage of the DIE. It's not like a CPU that has a heat spreader.

Overall Review: - Overall, if an extra splash screen at boot up is going to bother you like it does me, then get a different branded FE.
- It was this or the Titan X Pascal. I would have gotten the Titan XP if it came out at $999, but Nvidia are getting greedy and know they have the market cornered as long as AMD has no PCMASTERRACE-tier GPU.

Some other notes:
- I returned an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW for this 1080 because I did not think the FTW EK block would fit in my case. I am pleasantly surprised that both cards perform close to the same. Firestrike GPU scores (when overclocked) are 25,000 for the PNY FE and 25,300ish for the FTW. That's at 2126MHz and +500 on the memory. Power target and voltage slider also maxed.

- I will be installing this card into my loop once I sort out a possible faulty 6700K or RAM and look forward to sub 45C temps from there on.

It's a beast

Pros: I came from an MSI Radeon HD 7970 which ran most games at high 60 fps. Some games like Witcher 3 I would have to turn down to medium or low just to hit 30 fps on at 2k resolution. Well plugged this bad boy up and not I'm hitting 60 fps 2k resolution on witcher 3 with all graphics at ultra and even hairworks on. I love this card.

Cons: -Expensive. But really for the power its better priced than whats out there

-Hard to get one. of the 10 different brands all but 2 where sold out and the Gigabyte one sold out by the time I got to the shopping cart. This one sold out not too long after I ordered this card. As of writing this there are some back in stock but good luck getting one.

-My GF almost killed me when she found out I spent almost $800 on a graphics card. I have a feeling she will finish the job when I get another one. But it will be worth it.
