Fastest out of the box 1080 available, fantastic cooling capacity, relatively quiet. Only thing that could beat it is a custom loop liquid cooled GPU with a big OC.

Best and baddest GTX 1080 money can buy. But damn if it isn't huge. It weighs a ton and in the R5 case, it blocks you from installing a drive bay in the middle of the case. Due to it's size, I also don't think you'd be able to reasonably set up an SLI config on the motherboard as it effectively takes up 3 PCI lanes in width. It also blocks access to the mobo's SATA ports so I had to uninstall and re-install the card each time I needed to re-route my SATA cables/connections. Also, there's definitely the problem of GPU sag. To get around this, once I had everything built and in place, I used some fishing line to tie the over-hanging end of the GPU to the 5.25 bracket above. This seems to help and so far no problems with the heat the card never gets hotter than 72 degrees celcius.

Very fast and cool! Pretty much the fastest 1080 GTX in the market. It is easy to control with the provided Firestorm software and the RGB control options are a cool feature.

Very good card, the overclocking software Firestorm is very simple and offers the usual range of options. You can also choose LED colours and if it flashes, is static or breathe lighting. I mostly run the card at 2k mhz (gpu clock) with ease averaging about 45-50 degrees C. It obviously can handle every game I thrown at which won't change anytime soon.
