    Are we going to see the third party makers with any "single slot" versions of the 1080ti.... Meaning that they will do away with the DVI connector so as to make the card single slot with a water block.

    Looking forward to some serious cleaning up on the DeskStar and possibly going to two of these that will allow me to drop one of the three 1500 watt PSU's...!!!

    Damn, and I thought my 297mm GPU was big!


    I hear ya on that one. I'm not liking how so many GPUs these days have soldered double-stacked display connectors. I like it when the 2nd layer connectors are attached via ribbon cables, since I can remove them if I need to.

    I also don't understand why single-slot GPUs are so rare in general. Just about any GPU that uses a single 6-pin PCIe connector (or none at all) should be able to adequately cool itself in a single slot. For many micro ATX builds, losing an expansion slot can be a big deal.

    A good videocard to test those reinforced 16x PCI-E slots.

    The Fury PCB isn't that big though yeah the Tri-X and it's updated Nitro variant has a bit of the heat sink sticking out over the PCB for some reason so those models are a bit longer. :D

    This looks bigger still, guessing it's the same here then even if the Pascal 1080Ti PCB (And variants of it.) are probably a bit longer by default.
    (Not really sure how effective it is, seems to me it wouldn't do much but perhaps it helps dissipate heat faster?)


    EDIT: Still the Voodoo5 design back then had four fans. :p
    (Granted they were far smaller, ha ha.)

    Let's use a quote from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels shall we? :nerd:

    "Anyone like jewelry? Look at that one there. Handmade in Italy, hand-stolen in Stepney. It's as long as my arm. I wish it was as long as something else."

    And there I thought the days of buying a new case for a huge graphics card would be over after my clash with the MSI 580GTX Lightning (305mm length) :D
