Found GTX 1080's IN STOCK!!!! Question though...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've located a couple founder's editions in stock at a local store. I'd really like to get them but just have a question first. I'm ok with waiting for the AIBs to drop but I will be water cooling whatever 1080 I get. With all these power phase findings and voltage limitations would I get about the same overclock out of a founder's edition as I would an AIB assuming each one would be on water??? Thanks in advance.

Hard to say. I wouldn't bother with the founders as it's just an overpriced reference edition card. A lot of the AIB have custom PCB with a lot more/better power phase and VRM connection so they may be able to over clock better. I'd personally just wait. Even if the AIB overclock about the same, I wouldn't give NV extra money just for a reference card.

Yeah I know you're probably right. Just so much delay and I'm without a PC because I have no card. So when there's some in stock down the street it's tough to hold onto my money lol. I see sites in the US are now slowly starting to add AIB cards saying coming soon. Thing is...I also need to put a water block on it and the only blocks available are for founders edition.

Is this a brand new build or an upgrade?

Also, it's your money. Spend it how you like too. If you want to spend more to get it now and complete your build, by all means go ahead.

It's an upgrade build I suppose. I've got a working rig that was corsair h100i GTX CPU cooled and a stock gpu and have decided to go full custom loop. So I sold the gpu knowing I would be going to a 1080 and since I was going to be in the case I decided it would be a good time to build the loop.

Ahh and that was your first mistake. Never del old hardware until you have the new stuff and verified it works. I have a friend who's selling 2x980/for super cheap which I have dibs on. Not going to sell my 280x until I have the GPUs in hand and made sure they work without issue.

I'm not super worried about it. I'm still in the building phase of the loop. Plus just got an inground pool finished so there lots of work to do in the yard right now

Just updated the newegg site and it appears as if the Strix 1080 was up for sale. It now reads out of stock instead of coming soon...so much for that June 10 release date. I was ready to check at midnight
