Gtx 1080ti msi found founders edition 7/17/2017 12:41:06 PM

Pros: Power to play any game with max settings never had any issues with current games in 2017

Cons: No dvi support on founders edition does not come with a display port cable in the box.

Overall Review: This card is powerful and stable. Go out and buy a display port cable capable of handling 120hz 144hz. Do a little research on the refresh rates etc. if your monitor does bot have display port you will be capped at 60hz unless you have hdmi 2.0. I play competitive fps with this card and I never had any issues. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that dvi port should have been built in to the founders edition and a display port cable should have been included in the box. Aside from the stupid minor display port issue the card runs perfect.

MSI ruined a great card 6/5/2017 6:15:26 PM

Pros: Extremely fast and a serious bump up from the previous gen 980ti. Must more of a performance increase than you normally would expect in a single gen bump!

Cons: Regret buying MSI! I usually go with EVGA for my GPUs but decided on a whim to go with MSI instead due to a promotion they had. I totally regret it now. Not only has the HDMI port died after only 2 months, but contacting MSI support is next to impossible! They have a long and convoluted webform to fill out - that you can't actually submit. Tried it in both Chrome and Opera, and the form just throws errors in the javascript console and wont' submit.

So now what? I have a broken card, past Newegg's 30 days, and MSI support doesn't function. This isn't a cheap card so this makes me really, really mad.

MSI Quality even the box is Quality 4/27/2017 5:59:39 AM

Pros: Good Card I usually go EVGA for the last 4 cards but decided to give MSI a try.
Updated my Review to 5 stars for the reason that when I updated to the latest Geforce drivers 381.89 all my problems went away with the card causing my vision problems. I guess when releasing Windows creators update and 1080ti cards during the same month Nvidia had to play catch up. I updated my cable for my monitor to a Displayport 1.2 ACCELL cable these are quality cables you can buy and when you hook them up to any card the picture on your gaming monitor or whatever monitor will improve greatly and it will feel like a rock solid CRT monitor. I played Metro last light and I couldn't believe the difference the cable made. If you put the Fan on Aggressive with EVGA precision X it will keep the card cooled to 65 C. If you put the fan on auto or quiet it will ramp up to 84 C. I took the card apart twice to replace the thermal paste 1st time I didn't think I had enough paste on the chip. Card is really easy to take apart compared to AIC cooler cards.

Cons: MSI Afterburner could use some work so I'm using EVGA precision X with this card seems to work better at Startup when loading a game. Fan is pretty loud but speakers and case distance mute the sound. Riva tuner was crashing my Nvidia Desktop control panel it that is why I'm using EVGA precesion X.

Beast of a card!! 4/23/2017 7:30:01 PM

Pros: The card is fast and runs games at 4k wide open 60fps or better except for some of the newest titles (Ghost Recon). Can be silent if you leave the card in control of itself (aka no msi afterburner fan control). My card runs an average in the low 1700's Mhz just plug and play (50% fan speed).

Cons: Card runs very hot if you let it (84-85C) which is how it is designed but still crazy hot. If you control the fan with msi afterburner, you can get the temps down in the 70'sC but then the blower gets pretty loud (45-55db).

Overall Review: Here is the thing. There is no point paying more money for barely more performance. If you can get an AIB card for the same money then sure, buy that card. Otherwise, just buy the cheapest card you can get. All these AIB cards that are way more expensive only net you up to 10 fps more at 4k. Is 10 fps worth $50 or more to you? The only other reason to buy a more expensive AIB card is noise and temp levels. FE cards are silent but hot. They will run slower clock speeds because of the heat. Even with all that you would still have to overclock an AIB card to 1.9-2 Ghz to net that 10 fps gain. On top of that, AIB cards for the most part are 2 1/2 slot cards. If you are going for sff, FE cards are the way to go. They take up less space and still perform awesome. At the end of the day, you can still overclock an FE card just as far as an AIB card but with the extra noise level. You will run out of power and voltage before you get too hot.
