    I'm still gun-shy about buying EVGA products after the way the GTX 1080 FTW fiasco was handled. The whole thermal mod DIY thing, and then the VRAM thermal pads too, and then some VRMs actually catching fire. Plus a lot of the FTWs had a fan ramping to 100% issue, followed by a black screen. And to top it off they release a new improved ICx version of the 1080 FTW2, all the while still claiming that there was "nothing really wrong" with the original FTW 1080s. What a nice slap in the face to those of us that bought a FTW as soon as it came out. Glad I unloaded that turd on someone. I think that will cost EVGA a lot of customers in the long run. Yeah, it will be years before I buy any EVGA products - So I'm liking that MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X version a lot!

    bought one and just received it, 1st results on win7 dx11 1080p
    note :
    - 3dmark firestrike doesnt' seem to fully use the card has the clock never went above 1544Mhz
    - in my heavily modded skyrim (3380Mbs vram used) it goes to 1920-1960Mhz no tweaks or manual OC, factory auto-overclock, maybe thx to my 200mm fan straight in front of the GPU(s) ? (card never went above 71°C)

    benchmarks I did myself for comparisons :
    asus strix 908gtx sli : 19569
    msi 1080gtx gaming X : 18781
    msi 1080gtx gaming x sli : 26485
    mis 1080ti gaming x : 22213 (with only 1544Mhz like explained above)

    Did you raise the power limit and temp limit?
