I bought a 1080ti SC2. I took the chance and bought one used, and have been impressed with performance with one caveat: fan noise. I haven't noticed it being so loud past month but think a game finally pushed it. (Resident evil 2 remake at 1440p 144hz)
This GPU seems considerably louder than my good o'l gtx 970 under load.
Temps: When playing for a long time, they can reach up to 77, usually average of 75 when under full load. Fans peak at 68% speed.
I have the GPU in a fracture design meshify C and a be quiet 140mm fan spinning in front of it. Air flow shouldn't be a problem.
Reviews say that this gpu is louder than others with the tradeoff of more performance, but gamernexus (youtuber) said the card doesn't spin above 50% under full load.
Should this be something to be concerned about? I'm thinking of having the fans max out at 60%
