I'm liking these Today Only deals with 1080Tis. Not sure if the MSI card is for me, but if the Strix goes on Today Only (or the EVGA SC2 Hybrid) I'm gonna be all over that!
Netflix 4k working fine on your machines guys?
Has that rolled out yet for Pascal cards?
Or is it still just a kaby thing?
Which is the quietest 1080ti?
One with a waterblock on it.
But if you don't want to put a waterblock on it, I believe that the Gaming X is the quietest. Closely followed by the Strix
I gave up waiting for my FTW3 and cancelled my order, you snooze you lose EVGA. Only 3 weeks till the release of Vega and Volta could be close too. Might as well wait a little longer and see how the market reacts.
When did you order yours as I assume it wasn't a pre-order? I pre-ordered mine on 30/03/17 and it was delivered last week so..
Vega / Volta really will be interesting, hopefully i didnt jump too soon!
yup! there are a couple of software / hardware requirements though.
It was a pre-order from Amazon UK. I ordered on the 24th April the day it was listed on the website. They told me they won't have any stock till the 9th June, gave up and cancelled because that's just absurd. I don't know how they can expect their customers to wait 46 days for their order to arrive lol, what a joke.
They did the same with the Founders Edition. Pre-order was up on release and still didn't have stock for well over a month even though other retailers did.
Actually it has already been proven that the zotac amp extreme is the quietest card, can't remember where the review was but it certainly was not the gaming x from what i can remember.
they've really gone downhill as of late, I don't know how they keep their customers anymore tbh. They refuse to price match competitors, they can't re-stock on time, their customer service team lies to customers about re-stocking dates. I talked to a few people who work there and they first claimed to be getting some stock in on the 10-12th May, surprise nothing showed up. Then when I contacted them again they said they won't receive any stock till the 9th June (and that's just a rough estimate from their suppliers- could take even longer). I contacted them again today and they told me they don't even know when they will be getting stock for the FTW3's lol. Useless, rubbish company.
1. ICHIll x3
2. Gaming X
They are all near enough identicle from the few reviews I've seen.
Yeah there's not much in it, but there was a couple of cards louder than the amp extreme can't find the review, will try and find it.
@TimAhKin Aorus is the quietest with fans running 100% is a good 10db lower then the rest (3x100mm fans)
Gamer nexus or what ever ran them all at 100% and default settings
As for Auto fan curve , all flagship are pretty much on point with MSI nudging out the rest and all beat the hell out of the FE.
Aorus for me was noticeably louder than my current MSI. Unless there was a problem with my card. 70c=83% fan speed vs 58% on the msi both on stock fan profile.
But overall I just found the Msi of greater quality too. Looked and felt better quality. Also has black thermal pads which blend in where the aorus are quite thick grey ones which really stand out.
With all respect I don't think many people are going to run them at 100% in fact my temps in games barely get the fans kicking in at all lol, it's pretty much inaudible as the first german reviewer of the amp extreme said, but yes all custom cards are miles apart from the FE crap.
