Other than getting in earlier, why not save yourself $80 and buy the EVGA 1080 ACX 3.0 card: same PCB, better cooler - for $619. (only issue perhaps that the better binned chips are being taken away)

Getting in earlier is the whole point of 1080 FE, ACX 3.0 is still OOS and EVGA decided to give everyone who decided to step-up to it a SC instead because no new stock for it is coming anytime soon. People with FE have the FE, people who are waiting for ACX are running on iGPs rolleyes.gif

Because I don't have a GPU currently after selling my Titan Black and the back order for the ACX 3.0 is 6-8 weeks. That was the card I initially purchased...but I cannot go that long without a home computer, I have important things I do on it other than gaming and don't have an onboard GPU to tide me over until then.

Why not buy $10-20 GPU from Ebay (used) to hold that time over.

I bought a 7 dollar GPU that I am using until I find the right card to buy.

I'd rather not waste money on some crappy GPU. All my computer component part money for the year went into my 1080 purchase. I even had to sell my Titan Black before I purchased the 1080 just to afford it without killing things like food money and whatnot. If I had known the 3-4 week wait would double I would have gone with NCIX and would have my ACX 3.0 in 1-2 weeks from today but they were gouging hard and wouldn't price match so I went with Memory Express...who keeps taking orders with a massive back order list for the ACX 3.0

People who want money.

It's too bad, really. I WANTED to buy EVGA but had to go ASUS. Kind of disappointed in EVGA stock being so abysmally low.

Over a week now and I've yet to find any of these so-called flaws.

If you love your new card and its perfect in every way for you why do you care what anybody else says about it? Do you need validation of your purchase from others? Well OK, here goes: You bought yourself the fastest single GPU card ever made to date. Congrats!

That doesn't change the fact that even at that performance some of us find the 1080 underwhelming compared to what Nvidia COULD have released if they decided to make the BEST video card they possibly could, rather than releasing something that was just good enough and then charging a $150 premium for it. Its a great card but it ain't beyond criticism...
