I see, the xc seems like a decent choice. However the msi ventus with two fans is way cheaper than anything else on amazon now, is that a cheap model? Cooler seems beefy enough at two and a half slots still, just less fans. Can't really find any good reviews on the 2080 ventus cooler on noise/temperature and overclocking. Coming from a msi gaming 980ti it seems like it's going to just be the same cooler as that.
Whats the general opinion on the ventus, it seems to be the v2 ventus so whatever problems at launch must have been ironed out.
