    Yes it's closer to the traditional coolers of reference designs. Of course it will be a little cheaper, but if the card is essentially the same, aftermarket cooling people will find it attractive to save a bit if they don't need the cooler the card ships with anyway.

    I'm more curious about what power delivery is on there... I despise that digiVRM+ thing :puke2:

    Avoid buying these unless you plan to junk them during warranty

    Avoid buying these unless you plan to junk them during warranty

    The fans are unreplaceable aka the version of the strix fan with their unusual mount and false model number isn't available to the public for sale.

    Asus will not sell you one so when your warranty runs out and the fan dies you now have to rig 3rd party fans that do not fit onto the card.

    Thus I would buy from a different company that you know that this problem will not occur.

    hhhmmm?
    that leaves no brand.

    I am pretty sure that anus will have the first "true custom" pbc layouts.
    I think its been the same dcII pbc since the 680's or close to it.
    its pretty cool thou because the asus pro clockers really get out the how to's (bios hw mods and sub zero tips).
    really miss the lightning cards but you never know later on.

    i think fans on GPU (either custom or reference) are not "standard" fans that you can easily buy replacement on pc stores

    like msi gpu, they using power-logic fans which is not sold freely
    seems powerlogic oem their fans only... same like gigabyte/asus that seems using everflow fans
    anyway when mine dead (msi lighting middle fan), i can find replacement on net, but different color despite same model number
    only service center had the same replacement unit, had to pay for it as its out of warranty and not cheap either

    so for replacement i think you should make a call to service center in your area, ask for replacement fan, i believe they can help you, well u need to buy it if u out of warranty of course

    I don't have anything against ASUS, but from this generation of AIB coolers I'd go with MSI TwinFrorzVI any day. I'm most likely getting the 1080Ti Gaming X or whatever they will call it, which will likely look identical with my current 1070 (but most likely have 2x8 instead of 1x6 and 1x8 power pins).

    I remember quite a number of people complaining about sagging with ASUS 3fan coolers cards, I had sag like that on my MSI 970s and it looked really bad, hopefully they fixed that with a better backplate or something.

    in few last build, i been using same case silverstone FT02
    which make the gpu position vertically instead horizontal
    so no sagging

    but for sagging, i think its caused weight on the cooler
    and sagging isnt mean the gpu pcb bended, it just because on rear side it didnt have "stand" to lean on, while on other side it got lean to pc case + screw to hold it
    imo backplate can make sagging worse, because it add extra weight to the card

    the best way to prevent sagging is get a case that have GPU bracket/holder
    or make your own gpu holder, something like this http://i.imgur.com/MvHrjcv.jpg
    or even a string can be used to hang/hold the gpu http://imgur.com/aAUMqYw,H5NIDyM

    I only said that backplate might help because my GTX 680s and 1070 all had them and there was/is virtually no sag. On the 970s however, which didn't have a backplate, there was visible sagging. But yea, those holders are a pretty neat fix. :)
