    I really, really wish that MSI would quit putting that dragon on all of their stuff. I get that it's part of their gaming branding, but it really makes me shy away from their products these days.

    Can't wait for the review on this one. Granted theres plenty of headspace for oc but I can't justify the extra £180 ontop of a standard Ti. It's definantley the one to get though.

    I wonder why do they make a LC card that still needs a blower?
    It would be way better, and probably only incrementally more expensive, to include a full block able to cover GPU, memory and VRM.

    That's because it's using the generic asetek aio for the gpu chip. It would cost them alot of money to design and manufacture a nice small radiator pump combo that fits into a single 140/120mm slot along with the waterblock. Especially for the small amount that these cards sell.

    It is reference board from FE? or perhaps gaming X?

    930 EUR or 4.000 PLN in Poland. Looks okay. And sure sounds good too - mean silent.

    But I just get FE for a 20% less price. So I stick with FE this time.
    Then if/when DX12 SLI support "clarify". I get second 1080Ti FE for duet.
    That will be enough power to not overclocking them.
    I will not overclocking them.. not much.. ok I try.. :D

    This is a corsair card, so its the pirate ship, not a dragon...

    lol?

    This is a joke right?

    ...

    This has to be a joke....right?

    Or are you seriously telling me a dragon logo that you'll never seen and doesn't affect the performance of the card is really, actually making you shy away from their products?

    Except I will see it, because I can see all of my components through the side window of my case, so I prefer not to have a bunch of tacky dragons on everything. If you're ok with it that's fine, I'm just saying that I miss MSI's older less decorated products.
