    I can get the MSI card true Belgium webstock, but i am also thinking about the Gigabyte one, the MSI reviews are up now like 2 or 3 reviews, shall i buy the msi version now ? or wait a bit longer for the g1 review ?

    I have to say i am going to SLI them but i am not sure yet wich one is better of them 2, temperature wise.

    Reference is no go in my book it got fan problems, and a single reference one can heat up to 85c thats just to hot, imagine 2 of these things that will cook my inside case, and it will trottle for sure lol.

    Unless you're desperately wanting to play games just right now or next weekend, I'd personally wait for the reviews. Yet I think the difference won't be major, and cooling will be a lot better than FE cards.

    I would go for a MSI Sea Hawk with water cooling.

    That card does seem interesting, wonder though how loud it is (rad fan and blower fan).

    Guess less noise than 3 fans. As I game with headphones, noise wouldn´t be an issue. Let´s wait for reviews.

    I don't think it's going to be loud as the only thing the blower fan really needs to cool is the vrm and seeing as the whole pcb tuns cooler due to lower gpu temps it will help out even more. EVGA hybrid is also another one you can have a look at

    More pins doesn't mean it's better as long as it's not just one 8 pin, but what does look interesting for the gigabyte extreme version is those airflow videos which compares normal 3 fans to the new design with stacked fans.

    I'm sure it won't be a major difference though but interesting to see results, i'd go for the msi gaming one since it's probably gonna be cheaper too. And who knows when the extreme is available.

    So yea,leaving the Extreme aside between the msi gaming and the g1 i'd go with MSI no doubt.

    Hang in there for a couple more days and I will give you a real world response on the G1 once it arrives in the mail.

    Considering that the MSI Gaming is $720 and the Gigabyte Gaming is $620 it's an easy choice for me. (USA prices)

    After reading all the results obtain with the founders and the custom I decided to buy the Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 gaming. Will give you more info on the performance of the card that I will received this week.
