it's a damn shame sapphire isn't partner with nvidia since nitro/trix is a spectacular cooler in all aspects

That said as with any card...wait for aib models as they are almost always the better option.

If you're running a small form factor and want to X-fire the reference models actually fit the board. Also because the cards are so close together its imperative that the air gets pushed out the back instead onto the other card.

They are triple fan coolers though, they don't apply. Windforce isn't bad honestly.

We will see what Gigabyte come up with, they've tried to go too fancy with the 1070/1080.

The older Dual-X cooler from sapphire was garbage btw.

Yep the ROG is a joke, plus it will cost more.

I don't want lights, don't want gamererz, just a card that works well and overclocks lol.

lol read any 390 G1 Windforce 2X review, this cooler is bad. Best dual cooler - MSI TwinFrozr VI, hands down. It's worth that extra $20


and I think strix is kinda cool

Windforce cooler is fine on R9 380. Which is where this card sits in power consumption.

True about the MSI, but always pricey it seems, if not then highly considered, good quality cards and three year warranty

I'm not sure Gigabyte will just wack that triple fan cooler on the 480 so they may do a different design? We will see.

I'm not doing strix but that would be due to cost, looks aren't a problem for me but honestly it does look tacky.
post #1610 of 3674
Ahh, no I hadn't seen the design on 1070/80's.

I didn't take much note of the AIB cards as both are way outta my price range lol
