Asus is way overpriced or at least the cards for pre orders are so its either Gigabyte again which i have had mixed luck with or try MSI for the first time
My brother in law has the MSI 1080 TI Lightning and never had problems with it. It seems to run very cool for aircooling (barely hits 60°C)
My Asus 1080 strix runs very good and clocks to 2125mhz on air and 2175mhz on water, but they are expensive. I bought mine as an open box and got a 200euro discount on it back in the days.
I'm looking to EVGA since I hear they have the best warranty and you don't lose it when installing watercooling block. MSI and Asus don't give warrenty anymore in Europe once the sticker over the screws has been removed...
