GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 GV-N1080XTREME W-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Xtreme Gaming Water cooling Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cold! 29C - 51C temp range.
OC'd to 2190 but for some reason there are "limiters" that kick in and drop it down to 2176 for no apparent reason.
Overall pretty quiet fan on the rad. It CAN be loud, though, but there's no reason to run it fast.

Cons: The pump is just awful and loud. Louder than my mechanical keyboard while i'm typing with the case open. It's ridiculous. I'm already RMA'ing it because I want the product but there's no reason that this should have passed through QA. Ridiculous...

Other Thoughts: Would Recommend. Probably wouldn't purchase Gigabyte products again, though. I've been burned by a MoBo and now a Video Card....sigh...

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0, 08G-P4-6286-KR, 8GB GDDR5X, RGB LED, 10CM FAN, 10 Power Phases, Double BIOS, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC)

Pros: Quiet Fans
Great Cooler overall

Cons: It cannot hit 2.1GHZ like all FE cards can.
Power Draw just makes your power bill go up while not giving you any more performance over the Founders Edition

Other Thoughts: I'm starting to question if nVidia kept binned chips for the FEs because none of the AIB cards are hitting 2.1GHZ in the reviews I've read and I've ready quite a bit of them.

I know..silicon lottery....but youtube people are stating FE's getting 2114ish and AIBs sticking to about 2050mhz.

Mine hits around 2025-2080 but is sometimes unstable (depending on the game) above 2050.

Save your $$...get the basic EVGA SC. Save your electric bill. Get the basic EVGA SC.

SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

4 out of 5 eggs 3 year or lifetime warranty 06/02/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: Fast

Cons: If it were a 3 year or a lifetime warranty (MSI, Gigabyte, XFX...) Then I would have purchased it. 2 years is not enough future-proof comfort for me on already OC'd video cards.
