Love this card. It was a huge pain to actually find one in stock, but I'm glad I waited for this one! Mine was a later build, so it didn't have any issues with the plastic wrap being installed under the screws. I think it's a great looking card even though some people don't like it as much. Goes really well with a black and white build. I haven't really overclocked it too much as I don't want to increase voltage, but without increasing voltage it's stable in the 1950mhz range. Very fast! I play in 4K and this thing handles everything at over 45fps or so. In fallout 4 it stays locked to 60fps in Ultra settings at 4K for the most part. I set a custom fan curve as out of the box it was a little conservative and let the GPU get to a little over 80 degrees. The fans are very efficient and quiet, and with my custom fan curve it never gets above 77 or 78 degrees celcius and is still very quiet. I wish this one had RGB lighting but that's the only negative I can think of, and if that's important to you I'd recommend stepping up to the FTW if you can find it in stock. Overall I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a very fast card for 1440p or 4K gaming. If you game at 1080P I would still recommend a GTX 1070. Who knows, maybe in the (distant) future I'll pick up another one for SLI! :D
I’ve owned two GTX 1080 cards and I must say that this card is no weaker than my Gaming X from MSI. I love MSI but the price tag on their card is about 70 dollars more. Let me list the differences though. Higher boost and base clock speeds, RGB lighting in the front of the card, silent fans even under full load and great customer service. The Gaming X is not worth the 70-dollar premium in my opinion. The best 1080 would be the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme Premium Pack which I considered buying. The cards silent and powerful while including a free HB SLI bridge! I love EVGA too though so the basic edition of their 1080 which is the SC performs perfectly fine.
Such a big improvement over my last gpu. It destroys everything I play, but I am sure you all know this
Best GPU I ever owned, can handle all the games I throw at it. I currently have mine OC'd at +85 & +300, which is probably not even needed but it's stable at 60C-70C under load so I just left it like that after messing with it lol.
The GTX 1080 is a very good card. I play at 1440p 144hz so I needed a card this powerful. Runs every AAA game I throw at it although I find myself playing older games often and obviously this card doesn't even break a sweat. It ran hot so I liquid cooled it and nowe it runs cool and very quiet. 8 GB of GDDR5X is definitely needed as more games continue to use more VRAM. It boosts itself up to about 2000MHz (2GHz) with no overclocking.
Just an amazing card. I think the only limitation I've found so far is running Dark Souls 3 at 6k resolution can only run in 30fps. The game is perfectly playable. Memory easily clocks up to 5400 MHz.
It's just great, can run any game I throw at it at very high settings 1080p 144hz no problem, would highly recommend for future proofing your PC :P
Well, it's hot. Too hot. But I still love it. Get a liquid cooling system for it, as it gets extreamly hot. Can't wait to test it out on BF1!!!
This card is a beast and is destroying overwatch (only game i am playing atm because i gotta get more) the temps are okay, but the power really justifies it. The rgb led is what drew me to it. Also i guess the one i got was one of the fixed ones so i hope i don't die in a fiery ball of GPU.
Got a rather mediocre overclocker. +100 seems to be it's highest stable core overclock. +325 on memory. Running at above 2000 mhz core though, so it's not all bad. Great looking card with a single 8-pin, which in smaller form factor cases comes in handy. Nice quiet card capable of 1440p gaming at high frame rates with no stuttering.
