    that's typical gigabyte. tiny fans, high rpm, lots of annoying high pitched noise. nothing new here. that's why I also prefer MSI over Gigabyte.

    I think anybody who wants a nice quiet 1080 and cannot/don't want to pay the high price for the MSI Gaming X , i think this Inno 3D GTX 1080 iChill X3 is being severely overlooked.

    At £80 / $115 less than the MSI Gaming X , if i hadn't already experienced the silence of the MSI twin frozr i would be all over this INNO 3D card :banana:

    At the beginning of the video it's normal speed it only spins about 1000RPM and at 11.20 91% fan speed is 1400RPM 13.15 you can see that the card has a Maximum even at 100% fan speed of 1550RPM , thats pretty much a silent card. :infinity:

    The ASUS Strix is the best selling/Preordered card on OCUK , everybody is buying it but it looks to be a noisy as hell card to me , i though the Strix were supposed to be quiet :3eyes:


    I've just found this video which compares the ASUS Strix to the Inno3D iChill X3 i've just been talking about.

    I don't think some gamers realise that you don't have to put up with a noisy fan these days . And that they don't ramp up to very high RPM's during gaming anymore like they did 5 years ago , it's a shame.

    If you buy the right card they're pretty much silent all the time even during heavy gaming :nerd:

    The good things about those loud, high RPM designs is that you don't have GPU sag. In fact, it's probably best to have something pushing the GPU down in case it lifts off

    Yeah that's because gigabyte lowered fan speed in bios update :p

    Max rpm is 4200

    Max on stock bios is 3400 I think

    Anyway, msi coolers are quiet but less effective, at least with 980ti it was like this

    You can't compare directly since the fans are different in size. MSI fans at 1500 RPM would equal something like 2000 RPM Gigabyte fans in terms of noise. Still, three small fans is worse, less effective solution than two large ones in my opinion. You'll definitely hear these fans at 2300 RPM.

    You should cancel and wait for better the xtreme and all the other ones not released yet.

    the MSI GAMING X one is overpriced for what it gives IMO.

    They reduce my payment if the price gets cheaper when new msi x cards ships.

    Yes theres a tradeoff , that why i'm going with the 1080 Mid Chip this time :)

    Thats what i said earlier in the thread , i think the the big pascal is going to have a high TDP especially when overclocked and be pretty hot like the GM100 , thats a lot of power and heat , the really big triple fan - high RPM cards are great in that scenario.

    Thanks for that , Awesome :) :banana:

    It's looks like MSI have a custom power limit again like on my 780 (which they factory set to 117%) which causes the card to double boost past what they say the boost clock is . All of the ones i've seen seem to be unofficially boosting to 1936Mhz out the box , MSI never advertise that :)

    You too :p

    I only preordered a couple of days ago at OCUK , sent a webnote and was expecting to be 200-300 in the queue :( :-

    This is the reply:-

    'as you ordered via paypal I cannot see your exact position in the queue, we currently have 74 pre-orders and you are approximately 60th in the queue for the GPU'

    WooHoo!! :pc1:

    I've read a lot of reviews and here is a small breakdown of the bigger brands:
    MSI Gaming X - Everyone says this is a quiet card even at max load and OCs adequately.
    ASUS Strix OC - One reviewer said it was loud but others say it's not. Normal gaming RPM is under 50% which is about 1800-18500RPM. Highest OC out of the box with some headroom.
    Gigabyte Xtreme - Not very quiet and doesn't OC well.
    Inno iChill X3 - Quiet but hot (since fan RPM is only 1500) which gives no headroom for OC.
    EVGA FTW - Not read any review about this card

    EDiT - Named them too.

    Thanks for the summary. Can't wait to see the first custom vBIOSs and eventually tests or reviews with / of waterblocks.
