Just because you can do something shady doesn't mean you should. Especially since places like NCIX are only charging an extra 10-15% for their capitalist gouging tactics. Overall it's amoral to charge that much when the market can't even support that kind of price hike. Especially on a product that has issues like fan revving, sub-par cooling on the FE edition and can't OC very well.

LOL resellers are shady?

Look I don't like resellers myself, I have to deal with them every weekend because most of them MF have bots and I'm a sneakerhead. But if there is anything that's hyped or high in demand you'll always have resellers and scalpers. Either get better at purchasing, wait it out for a restock, or pay the fee biggrin.gif

That Gigabyte Extreme is hard to look at with out giggling from the silliness of all the 'badassery' they've heaped on to that thing. That said, It's by far my favorite of all the new cards so far. I love that thing.

Yeah it's a nice card. I'm aiming for a 2-slot, 3-fan card this time and I was looking at the Gigabyte G1 but it looks kinda plain to me tho.

Holy Hell, that Gigabyte Extreme 1080 is my new favorite card. 5-copper heatpipes, 2x HDMI 2.0 ports that can be used either internal or external, and layered 3 fan cooling with overhang heatsink. My FTW's on order look kinda puny in comparison. I wish we knew when these cards would hit retail, constantly checking sucks ass.

I've always wondered why Gigabyte cards use 3 fans when EVGA, Asus, MSI, etc pull exactly the same temps (if not better) with 2 fans and identical noise levels.

G1 is almost perfect outside of those orange accents. Xtreme Gaming feels too over the top even with RGB disabled. As it stands the Asus STRIX is still the most subtle card. i think a close second goes to the Zotac if it were't for that backplate.

That list also shows that Pascal has a +/- 13 MHz core clock step just like Maxwell and Kepler before. Overclocking to these increments will be better for stability, assuming the core doesn't just default to the closest floor step anyway.

Do you know the two different SKUs?

"more is better" mentality

Psychological approach.

I do love Windforce though, so quiet.

For the 980Ti, Gigabyte's Xtreme Gaming 3-fan cooler beats those having a 2-fan-cooler (MSI Twin Frozr / EVGA ACX)
post #4470 of 6175
European suppliers are slowly getting MSI 1080 Gaming X in stock. I got info from polish supplier that they might have it tomorrow in stock.
I wanted to order Strix but since they use this bad designed cooler again I resigned from it.

Fingers crossed for good OC smile.gif

P.S. It's same price as FE in Poland

Beats in what ? I would say if you level the fan curve for them to reach same temperatures those two are close. But from my experience Gigabyte makes more noise (overall dB and annoying pitch).
