Everyone is making their own HB SLI bridge- EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Asus and even EK. So you can just wait and buy other bridges too. Alternatively, EK isn't the only company making reference PCB waterblocks. I informed most others about this and they are all verifying their blocks have no such issues.

I honestly need a new case even though I bought a new one last year. Purchased the CM Stormtrooper case last year when I rebuilt my PC and although it looks nice it gave me headaches when putting my machine together. Theres a molex cable for the front panel that powers the USB 3.0 ports and status information that is missing a wire on the cable and if plugged in prevents the whole system from starting properly. I can't get to the front panel from what I've seen so its a loss on my part. Plus this would be a nice way to spend the money I would of put down on the 1080 instead.

You're right. I would also like to see manufacturers make their cases available in more colors such as grey,titanium,graphite grey, silver etc...

The sarcasm burns strong in this post.

I thought it was a serious post. Most cases are only available in black or maybe white. There are colored cases out there but they are generally kinda garbage, this is probably because colored cases would be a very low volume item.

No I'm serious cuz I'm trying to aim for a grey/black system next round. I wish my current case (V51) were grey.

I took it as sarcasm because you were only mentioning very similar colors. My bad, its Friday I'm not using my brain.

Yeah most cases that don't fall into black or white are so out there in design I feel like an interior designer tried to make it.

That Hybrid might be my choice if all the 1080's cost the same, pending the '1.25' thing and if there are any cards somehow immune to that voltage limit. That said, if none of these cards will get past the 1.25 limit and if the hybrid carries as much of a price premium as I'd expect, I wonder if it'd be worth the additional cash just to have a quieter card.
