No kidding, the MSI card is extremely good at noise and cooling thumb.gif

But for the same price, water is preferred imo

Looks good and avoids the issues the hybrid cards have with not having a full block. Nice. I wonder if they'll follow this up with a Ti version?

Should I get this or an air-cooled GTX 980 Ti? ^^

Gaming?

The games and resolutions will mostly dictate what "you" may need in a card.

A air cooled 980Ti at 1350/7800 will be a good bit faster at higher resolutions than a water cooled 980 at 1500/8000 all other things being equal. If yer playing 1080 a 980 will be plenty fast. biggrin.gif

The 980 is a fine card regardless and very capable. thumb.gif

With the pump being on the block, doesn't this just allow the company to be sued by asetek for their patent infringement? Was the asetek case strictly for cpu blocks?

Sometimes I am so confused when particular pieces of hardware are released. This one IMO just doesn't make sense to me. Sure, it would have been a fun option to consider within 2 months of the 980 launch, but not now. Especially when 20% more money can bump you into 980 ti territory. Maybe not the cream of the crop 980 ti, but this AIO 980 isn't clocked to anything unheard of either.

As I pointed out earlier, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if these were simply existing stock from their "3x WaterForce" cards that they couldn't move, so they're now being repurposed and sold as single cards.

"using 45cm of" and "is cooled using"

Did you see the written claim of a half meter of cooling tube and chilling? Chilling is energy-force cooling an air or fluid below ambient, not radiative. Marketing needs to start getting taken out and shot again.


Not to mention how ABJECTLY STUPID it is to bring the hoses out the end of the [bannable offense words] card.

This thing is an abomination of stupidity, a 980 that only hits 1200 WATER COOLED???

A lot of tis will easily reach 1500 so expect even better performance.

I admit this card looks quite good but Gigabyte should have done a water cooled GTX 980Ti instead, the GTX 980 isn't even that all impressive at all.
