980 ti , what brand?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im deciding on getting a gtx 980 ti sometime soon, I have a 780 right now. Is $550 a good price for a used 980 Ti with the blower style cooling? I was reading some reviews and people are saying some cards are hitting 80-85* C? What brand do you guys recommend?

I have to create a very aggressive fan profile in msi afterburner to keep my blower style cooler 980 at 68c while gaming or folding,
otherwise it's a 85c in no time.
Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980 with the windforce cooler is tops.
I have the Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 before my PNY 980 and I left it on auto-fan control and it never went over 65c. I got my PNY GTX 980 from the PNY rep that my wife buys from at her place of employment. and I think I'm going to change to cooler.

I second the G1 980ti. smile.gif
The blower style cooler by fan default will run in to the mid 80'sC at load unless the fan profile is more aggressive, which will keep the card cooler but at the expense of noise.

I'm considering this cooler, it's $10.00 cheaper on new egg or amazon, it fits the 980 and 980ti
