    Last week I was 105th in the EVGA 1080 SC queue.

    This week 40 turned up at OCUK.

    So logically, I'm obviously now 67th in queue.

    Wut.

    I would recommend the Pallit super jetstream to anyone who isnt bothered about it being a triple slot cooler. Its in stock and at £620 its one of the cheapest. Mine boosts to 2000mhz out the box, fans never go above 40 to keep it at 70 degrees after hours of gaming and I cant even hear it in case full of low noise fans. I'm VERY impressed with it

    Another scotsman waiting for a strix here lol. Maybe its just us thrifty scots left who haven't switched!

    I'm 16th in queue after ordering on 27th May, i'm not in a mad rush for it, i've waited this long, can wait a bit longer. Only thing is my 980ti is depreciating by the day but at least i can still use it for now


    interesting, is it the OC version of the strix?

    Can you measure the width mate, I'm defo considering one of these if my xtreme doesn't turn up soon. Just want an idea of exactly how much space we are talking.

    Yeah mate no bother. I will post up sometime in the next half hour when I get a minute. Check out my pics on the 1080 owners thread to get a judge of the depth

    Right, please bare in mind the card is installed so this isnt exact but its as close as I can get.

    Length=29cm
    Width=14cm
    Depth=6 1/2cm (2 and a half slots)

    I have the ROG VIII hero and its installed in the top PCI slot and I could still get another card installed below it even though it would be VERY close!

    As I said though, I cannot recommend this card enough. Ive always gone MSI Gaming cards but this is cooler,quieter and faster so the extra £100 they want is out of the question

    At least this explains where the 1000 Strix cards that Asus promised were arriving in the UK this week went. Looks like they sent the lot to the jungle. :eek: A shame they choose to support the big etailers first but sadly that's the way big companies work these days. Fingers crossed we see our Strix soon.

    Seems an almighty mess.

    When I worked in manufacturing, we were penalised by buyers if we couldnt fulfil orders. Typically they got a discount on cost of items.

    I would hope OCUK and other retailers get compensated for a total fail on ASUS part, as the retailer should have the strong bargaining position here.

    I've now finally had confirmation of my order delivering Monday, I'll post up some pics and stats when it does - I've go a pair of them replacing a 980Ti in a custom loop... They will have to run on air until EK release the blocks so I'll be able to share my comparison out the box vs my overclocked 980Ti FTW. No HB bridges in stock in the right size anyway so those will have to come later...

    Also planning to test using the 980Ti as a dedicated physx card, which I'm aware is overkill but it's also fun :)

    I've been on Intel graphics since May 20 and with a new Acer Predator X34A G-Sync ultra-wide. It's been hell!!

    My 1080 FTW finally comes Monday. Hang in there dude your card will come. You could also switch models. MSI 1080 Gaming X card would be my second choice.

    I too have had my OC Strix since 6th July after my seller got their consignment in on the 1st. I'm not sure whats happening with the OCUK stock as Asus seem to be fulfilling other companies first. For what its worth this card is fantastic and was well worth waiting almost 6 weeks!
