    Pretty awesome card, too bad about the fan curve. And why that color scheme?! I had to paint mine to make it look better :')

    it is fun to see other color than black and red (wich is boring i think... look like diesel engine :) )... it fit well with silver and white motherboard too.

    In 3DMark 2013 test page it will help much better if you show the graphic score rather than the full score.

    Thanks

    Another thorough review, thank you Hilbert. When might the most powerful EVGA air cooled card come up for review?

    As your review sets out, no compelling reason to buy this card over a quieter and better cooled one from MSI or Asus.

    I don't know why palit chooses this color scheme on their flagship card, the jet stream one is better imho

    Thanks for the review Hilbert, the OC is underwhelming though...

    Also: "The card did exhibit some coil noise/whine that you can hear under normal conditions (closed chassis)."

    It would be really wonderful to come up with some methodology to correctly record the noise, so we can listen to it. I know it varies among cards and worse among apps/games/FPS. But for example Heaven benchmark or FireStrike with unlocked FPS and maximum power target/OC would be a nice example of almost worst case scenario to record.

    Well i went for the regular Jetsream from Palit and oc'ed it myself a bit.The cooler on the card looks like a beast and i'm very impressed by it.
    I could have gone with an Msi wich was only 12€ more but i wanted a different brand.

    In the end its not realy worth it in my opinion going from a 1080 to at 1080ti but hey i wanted something else.:nerd:

    Great review Hilbert!

    The VRM solution is of great quality and uses 12+2 phases, a doubled 6 phase for the GPU and 2 real phases for the memory.
    Pages 2 & 5 should be updated to reflect the correct information.

    Due to the heat being spread on a larger amount of VRM components, it tends to run cooler than many other premium 1080ti cards.

    Due to the very good PCB and decent heatsink this is a great card once you ditch the original slightly noisy fan solution and attach custom 2x120mm high pressure type fans.
    You can detach the fan casing from the heatsink without touching the "warranty void if removed" sticker too, but only with a small (PH1 or smaller) offset (90 degree angle) philips screwdriver.
