Why the HECK would a great company like MSI chose to make such a stupid decision like making a water cooled card with one 8-pin connector?

(and try to hide it in their photos)

The reasonable assumption would be that they know having more than 1x8-pin doesn't help anything.

maybe they know something you dont know, like maybe theres limited to no advantage of more power unles your using LN2.

Because as somebody (geggeg?) pointed out earlier, the Corsair CLCs only fit on reference boards.

has anyone else experienced this issue? Every time i try and overclock my 1080, and put on a fan curve, the fan revs up and down loud enough to hear it. The gameplay stays stable and smooth but the card's fan will jump from 2200rpm to like 2800rpm plus. Its quite annoying.

Honestly I wanted more from the 1080. Guess I will wait for big pascal as my 970 sli walks all over it.

Fallout 4, DOOM, Titanfall and many more.

I think I'm going to wait one more round then.
