Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coil whine. Well the thing is a 1080 so my settings are ultra and frames are through the roof. But it whines like a new born. By all means buy a 1080 just not this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power card that takes everything you throw at it I bought this GPU as I needed a GTX 1080 That would fit the Corsair Air 240 case and it did it without a hitch. I've played a few games to test this card out, to name a few - Watch Dogs 2, Project Cars and Bioshock 2 and I've managed to play them all in 4K on Ultra settings. The Xtreme Gaming software is OK, it allows you to perform auto and manual overclockers along with setting fan profiles and changing the LED effect which is a cool feature. I would reccomend this card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very fast video card, FPS is limitless, well worth the money if you want fast gaming. I highly recommend using Scan, a great team of lads and of course very helpful and well informed, Mr D Balbert

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit For me, buying this card was well worth the price. I've had fast, hassle free gaming on my 4k monitor and smooth, lag-free VR on my HTC Vive since I installed it. It runs pretty quiet and cool too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin I won't bore you with figures bit needless to say this card has run every game i have on full resoloution (4k) and doesn't make any noise unless i manually put the fan to a high setting. As usual gigabyte has a high build quality.
