    RTX series when it comes to coolers has pretty much just being a rinse and repeat of what we had on Pascal, of course that is not always an issue as many of the 1000 series coolers were and are superb, but what Gigabyte have done with their Aorus brand is really something special, instead of me trying to educate you all I would highly recommend you watch this short video clip from Gigabyte:

    Now for me, this is exciting, Aorus have totally re-invented their coolers and they have also re-invented the RGB and lighting effects, of course there will always be people who dislike RGB and the whole LED effects etc. but hey Gigabyte also sell great looking 2000 series cards with all black coolers like the WindForce and Gaming for those of you who don't want all the glitz and jazz inside their PC's.


    Absolute cobblers from start to finish, clearly OCUK never even tested these cards. I hope people have read this thread and don't fall prey to any more of this marketing BS in future.

    Well my RMA has been received today on my Auros Xtreme Waterforce AIO so here’s to hoping it goes smoothly. I’m pretty certain (unfortunately) I won’t be getting another gigabyte/Aorus card.

    They were hardly bumped up this gen, 70-80% increase but we got RTX which doesn't run very well on these cards and hardly any game uses or plans to use.

    There is probably more going on with these card than nvidia is letting on I’m on my 2nd card now (not OcUK fault) but the rma rate is probably a problem than they are talking about.

    Im hoping to get mine sent out soon, I have been mad busy all week. Another driver update has come as well, games still crashing. Ive given up trying now to be honest, I did manage to catch Hitman2 crashing to desktop after 30seconds on my phone as some 'proof' as scubes did. Glad you finally got yours sorted, just hope they don't initally reject mine as they did with you!
