Unless the same dud card is making the rounds with reviewers.

Nah much better to just reverse the FTW name. biggrin.gif

It's the only card I've seen that provides passive cooling for all of the VRAM and VRM. That means that swapping it to hybrid cooling will not only be really easy, it won't cost me a dime.

The VRM heatsink is nice, but the memory plate isn't that great. It's just a flat piece of metal, so the surface area is seriously lacking compared to proper ramsinks. It really would've been a better idea to just buy a cheaper 1080 and buy separate ramsinks like these). That and you have to deal with MSi's retarded warranty sticker on one of the screws. sicksmiley.png: (though MSi confirmed your warranty is valid as long as you don't physically damage the PCB if they see the sticker has been tampered with)

That's what I did with my G10 and H75 on my gigabyte 1080 g1. Works great :D

The RAM doesn't produce much heat. Separate little heat sinks wouldn't make much, if any difference. Some of these cards run with nothing cooling the chips at all. Yes, I might save some money that way, but it's just easier buying a card that already has it taken care of for me.

I'm already very familiar with MSI's warranty policy in regards to removing and replacing the heatsink.

Double Ouch.. I've seen 2 reviews that hit 2100Mhz+ for the cheaper SC Gaming. Must be the craftsmanship in those 5+1 phases tongue.gif

well no 1080p for me.... my strix970(3.5gb) is Ngreedya's last card for sure, they managed to lock all overclocking on card (to counter aib's) so that they can sell reference card(at biggger price :S)in big numbers just like aib's....

edit: not all overclocking potencional, but u know what i mean....

EVGA might be keeping better binned chips for Classy or Kingpin...

All 4 of my 1080s clock to ~2100Mhz on air. They are the FE cards. Really sad if the SC/FTW editions cannot even match that. I would expect at least 2200+ Mhz on those.

Anyone have the SC version that clocks really high?

It's a silicon limitation, nothing more. You're not going to see 2200+ MHz from any 1080 regardless of design unless you can get it cold. At least that's what it's looking like.

2100 is good enough


and FTW really sucks if it cant hit 2000
