So the Micro center near me has 3 open box 1080TI. clock speeds arent really the issue i have since they are all pretty much the same card so they should OC the same.

i was mainly wondering about temp/noise differences, 3 fan air cooled vs 2 fan water cooled (rad fan/single card fan), i have never used a hybrid video card before and im running a msi 1070 right now. will be playing on 1440p 144hz. so is the hybrid worth picking up for that price? or should i grab the cheaper air cooled card? on max settings running almost full load would the hybrid see less thermal throttling?

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Gaming 11GB GDDR5X Video Card w/ Hybrid iCX Cooling Technology price $719.9
Out of box speed
Core clock speed 1556mhz
boost core clock speed 1670mhz

Gigabyte AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11GB GDDR5X price $746.96

core clock speed 1607mhz
boost core clock speed 1721mhz

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 GAMING 11GB GDDR5X price $701.96

core clock speed 1569mhz (heh 69)
boost core clock speed 1683mhz

At those prices your might get the hybrid cooling unit. On average, water cooled GPU's are 20c cooler and a few DB's quieter thank their air cooled counter parts.

Not a 1080Ti, but in general should be the same. Installed a hybrid kit on my 980 and temps dropped from 80c and maxing out at 60c. So with the hybrid, you get lower temps which could translate into higher overclocks or lower fan noise.
