Not sure about the voltage thing. Even the voltage hard mod page claimed that Pascal doesn't respond well/unstable at higher voltage. ASUS Strix is probably the best example of that.
As for air cooling EVGA also has models with exact cooler on reference board and way cheaper, but even so the best air cooling models should probably go to AMP Extreme, Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming, ASUS Strix and most Palit/Gainward variants, all featuring nothing short of a gigantic heatsink:DEdited by Cornerer - 8/23/16 at 10:17am
