The long 3 fan cards are overkill IMO, especially on the thicker 3 slot designs. I have an EVGA XC Ultra which is a reference PCB (short) 3 slot design with a really thick heatsink and two fans, and it very rarely gets enough load to even get the fans to 50%. Peak load temps are in the low 70's but more common loads are in the 60's. And this is on a pretty aggressively overclocked card (see GPUZ below for my 24/7 OC; I can go higher for benchmarks).

So yeah, my point is that I'd consider any of the long 3 fan custom PCB cards, or any of the shorter reference PCB 2 fan cards with thicker form factors. Any of these should be able to stay nice and cool/quiet under normal gaming loads, even when overclocked. Don't get any blower cards, founders cards, or any thin (2 slot) reference PCB cards if you can avoid it. Power connectors are basically irrelevant since 8+6 pin can provide more than enough power for ANY 2080 even at pretty insane below-ambient overclocks. The custom PCB cards with 8+8 pin connectors tend to have better silicon, which is the real difference in terms of clocks. It has nothing to do with power pins, and little to do even with the VRM considering how good the reference VRM is.

However alot of reviews putting the noise and temperatures the same if not in favour of the duke oc for some reason. Also the extra power doesn't seem to matter since all 2080s are power limited, so my question is the trio x still worth getting will I hit better oc's with it?

Really I am open to getting any 2080 except reference or asus strix since it's to expensive, msi seems to be the next go to choice after asus. The evga xc is only a two fan and the gigabyte gaming oc while the cheapest I do not trust as much due to general opinion being gigabyte qc not being as good as other brands.
It depends on how much you like to push the very least OC.

Of course silicon lottery always affects but overall yes the Gaming X Trio will have more OC capabilities.
Being an 2x 8 pin means you have more power, you can cross-flash let's say the 338W EVGA FTW3 bios and it should work w/o issues.

But if you don't care about all that to get probably a 30~45 Mhz more clock, then the Duke OC should be enough for ya.

Interesting, cheers.

In my indecision the trio x went up £50 and the duke oc £30 on amazon. The evga xc is now much cheaper than both of them with the gigabyte gaming oc white being the cheapest of all. I guess if they are both reference and the three slot vs two slot cooler does not matter that much then evga may be worth the £20 more than the gigabyte for the warranty.

I would expect the XC to be cheaper as the Trio X is on the same level as the EVGA FTW3, and XC is kind on the same level as the Duke OC.

I wouldn't get the GB, it seems they had several issues with their coolers / heatsink as they launched many revisions cards already and it's hard to know which revision you will be getting.

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.

I had a 2080 Ventus OC (make sure it's the OC version, A chip.)
Very good card, OCed well to 2055/2070 Mhz on air, super cold, the cooler is great and handle the temperatures very well (and I live on a hot place). I just changed because I had a missfortune trying to put the AIO on it.

It's cheaper than other models just because it has ZERO visual stuff, there isn't even a led on the logo, but I would say is much better than any other cheap card from Gigabyte for example.

I had a MSI 980TI also, gaming G6, it was a super hot card, nothing to worry about on the Ventus 2 fan cooler.

Ye the gaming 6g gets really hot at times, still been a great card through the years though. It's finally getting destroyed though at 1440p, divison 2 brings it to 40fps have to bring most settings down to high/medium to get just 60fps nevermind the 120+ target I would want.

I happen to have upgraded from a MSI Gaming GTX 980Ti 6G to a MSI RTX 2080 Ventus 8G last week and I can tell you it's been a very good upgrade sofar.. I did go for the regular Ventus despite knowing it has a non-A chip because I figured the possible difference in overclocking would not be worth the extra money (non OC version was 70 euro cheaper).. And I was right to take the gamble because the card I got overclocks to the same numbers I see people get with the OC version (2055/2070Mhz also mentioned by fleps).. It also runs nice and cool (74c max) with the fans only running at 43% with the default fan profile.. As a result the 2080 Ventus is more quiet under load then the 98Ti Gaming was.. In the end I think the MSI Ventus is the best value for money 2080 you can buy right now, if you do not care about RGB etc.. I got it for less then 700 euro where most other 2080's are still close or well over 800.. If you can get the Ventus OC version for not much more money you can get that but I doubt you would get much more out of it because I've read that's also limited to the same +11% powerlimit for overclocking..

Yo thank you for the reply my man, that does seem like a nice direct upgrade especially the temps and noise as my gaming 6g has to have 80% fan speed to hover about 75-82c depending on load.

Patience paid off, sat with the cards I wanted bookmarked and checked amazon every few hours or so to see price flucuations and the gaming x trio came down to £710 which is same price as cards like evga sc and gigabyte gaming and only a bit more expensive than the ventus. Well excited first card upgrade since the 980ti launch. This is the model I really wanted after the asus, but at £100 cheaper than the asus I think it was the best purchase.

Will post some results soon.
