And it's the top cards which cost a lot still. There are people trying to buy my card now that the 1080's are out as they want to grab it cheap. erm nah ain't happening. I wouldn't even get the money back to buy a decent 1070. so I'll stick with the 980ti for two more generations smile.gif

I would recommend getting the KFA2 1080 HoF. it's £619 over at overclockers. I bet a lot that it will out perform any other 1080 out there, even the kingpin. speeds confirmed at 2200core on air, and 2500 core on water. And that isn't even their LN2/GOC edition cards which will reach 2.8k+ core pretty easy if im honest.

But that said, just go for what you think is better. personally I would prefer a single stronger card as SLI can be iffy on some games even today.
Well its msi gaming /asus strix 980Ti selling for 350-400 with waterblocks...So no cheap reference versions wink.gif

I didn't say a 1080 would beat a weak pair of 980ti in sli. I said the performance would be a lot lower compared to sli in the top tier 980ti cards like the one I have. My card is at times 15-20% better than the weaker cards, so if you factor that into it the sli with my card would be much better than sli with the cheaper cards. What I was saying it would be better to sli with the top dogs as they're better cards. But sli is still broken in some games that's why I haven't done it yet. Plus a top 1080 can be oc'd very very high. it wouldn't surprise me if a kingpin or Hof 1080 can match two bog standard 980ti in sli due to the insane overclocking you can get on them under water.

Don't call bs if you didn't understand what I said.

Go with the msi cards, they're better than the strix ones. They'll definitely be better than a single 1080. If only I lived in the USA. you guys get such cheap computer parts it's so saddening how ripped off we get in the UK/EU.

I'm in the uk bro and will need to see into it.
MSI gaming and asus strix SLI both MSI and asus watercooled are going for ~800£. Thats all custom pcb and stuff...
If I get strix 1080 i will pay 660£+140£ waterblock = 800£.

980Ti sli is a better deal to me..



ANyway, why is Msi gaming better than asus strix 980Ti ? tongue.gif
post #13355 of 16162
the hof cards are proven to not be very good. and you were right about what you said. i misunderstood. i do understand what i read before though about the hof cards not being good for the price. they are average.
and dont call bs on this or i will go get the review and benchmarks i looked at before buying my msi cards.

msi cards have all performed crazy well. everything else has been spotty. the only better cards are the lightning (also an msi of course) and the zotac amp! extreme

we've had members here review on other sites and linked to other sites stating there are 4 980ti cards to avoid. the strix is 1

I would venture to say the xtreme gaming by gigabyte is the best consumer card. Average overclocks are significantly higher and temps remain very low. VRM temps can get a bit toasty though depending on the voltage.

If you haven't owned a HOF card you don't know anything. Yes reviews can give insight and so do benchmarks. There's a reason why 8PACK uses HoF cards because he has been able to get crazy results using them. On a bog standard air cooled 980ti hof he got 1600mhz core, and 2150mhz memory. Obviously that was silicon lottery. I haven't achieved no where near the core clock he has. Then you have the LN2 models made for liquid nitrogen cooling. The HoF cards are not average, they're up there with evga's classified, kingpin, msi lightning and the G1/extreme. I've seen people using all of those cards getting same clocks as me.

Don't use speculation and results from 3rd party reviewers, every time I have bought a product it has always performed higher than any review/benchmark has shown.

I personally will never buy an asus, msi, gigabyte or EVGA card ever again because i've only had terrible customer service/rma experience with them, whereas with KFA2/GALAX I've never had any problems and i've had the 780HOF and previous cards by them.

bs for the simple fact evga has better customer service than ANY other company and you claim to have had issues with everyone but galaxy. youre full of it as i stated previously.
blocked for being a liar sharing useless misinformation.

the card is average. run along now.
