General feel and look of the HOF was greatly superior than the gigabyte eagle I had. The HOF felt and looked premium, even the unboxing experience was great. Gigabyte was like a big standard brick. I've opened cereal boxes with more joy.I was looking at the Gigabyte but it seems plagued with problems. Now I'm looking at the hof but the thought of loud coil whine is not nice. My msi gtx1080ti has it but its not too bad, I can't hear it with headphones on.
So much money I hate the thought of it not being right.
Just a shame that my HOF had this severe coil whine. I'm on holiday now but will be ordering another HOF when I'm back and hoping it's issue free. I'll update here if I remember.
