    Boost and thermal throttles can do really weird things. I do warm up the cards prior to testing but once a card reaches a certain threshold it'll boost a bit lower or higher. The results are what they are, I write them down and publish them. But this review is about the 1080 Ti Poseidon, not a 1070 so let's stay on topic shall we?

    Good review.
    I had to choose between this one or the msi sea hawk x ek. I ended up buying the msi because it was 50e less and wanted a full block gpu. Just finished the build with a 6800k i already had.

    Good stuff. I'm currently participating in a giveaway which has two of these with the build, good to know what to expect more or less :D

    Give or take, all the 1080Ti cards perform within each of another (if you compare air cooled vs air cooled, AIO vs AIO).
    gl for that giveaway though. ;)

    A very nice card indeed and those temps are so desirable. Back here in SA I see this is the most expensive 1080Ti money can by. With that you still have to add in the cost of a WC loop. Definitely not for the feint of heart. Lol!

    Thanks for the review :) Great card but there's not really a reason to buy unless you want water cooling as it doesn't net you any higher overclock compared to a good air cooled card , maybe help with the throttling a little at best

    another great review HH.:cool:

    my only comments come from bitterness and greed:p
    1) omg this is what Asus should have led with on initial release.
    2) all the best cards come at the end of their product cycles.
    3) this is less than what i paid for gtx 1080ti FE and ek waterblock (on release for both).
    4) no way i could justify this.:mad::mad:

    " The card boosts towards ~1950 GHz and does not throttle down in our long duration stress test."

    Finally, a good overclocker ;)

    Just checked with ROTR. "Same" score at 4K(71.32FPS. run once tho). 188FPS OC@1080P.

    And I haven't installed my EK block yet. :D
