    Hi, im thinking on buying a GTX 1080 for my new computer, i was looking on buying the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Windforce OC but its out of stock on my local amazon (i mean on amazon.es), so i saw in stock the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Turbo OC.

    Is that one good too ? Should i buy another one ? Actually i dont really now how the different assemblings for the GTX 1080 works and what they do on actual performance, lifetime or features. I just picked the Windforce as i thought the triple fan would be better and im a bit skeptical of the Turbo because it only have one tiny fan.

    Could be great if someone can clear me this. Thanks in advance!

    It's having higher temps and it's noiser, if you can live with it ... :) as long you will have headphone when playing, you should be fine.

    Its a noticeable higher temp? Something to worry about? Asking this because my bedroom get actually a bit hot in summer so i dont know if this higher temp can affect the lifetime of the gpu

    I'd give the blower style a right swerve from experience, it'll prob run about 82 degrees

    It's noisy, but it's taking all the hot air produced by card outside, nothing is staying inside PC case, so nothing to worry about :)

    You need to wait right now for the 1180 GTX coming in August and what not.
