MSI GeForce GTX 1080 SEA HAWK X 8GB GDDR5X VR Ready Graphics Card, 2560 Core, 1683 MHz GPU, 1822 MHz Boost, AIO Hydro is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and Powerful This card provides highest possible gaming standard available on the market right now. Using this BEAST on 2560x1440p monitor I can play any game out there on maximum without worrying about overheating my GPU or capping FPS. This card arrives in an amazing package. The whole product build speaks of one thing - high quality. Installing this thing is Very simple. You put the card into PCI-E x16 slot, Attach the Cooler onto the back ( or top ) of your Case (make sure tubes dont bend), plug the 8pin power cable, connect the Fan power cable to Motherboard and thats it. Install the new driver for your amazing 1080 and you are ready to go. Performance: This card ROCKS. Idle temperatures are fantastic - 25c idle on 1440p monitor @144hz With Gsync enabled, now that is something. When I ran several benchmarks and put maximum pressure on this GPU my Jaw dropped even more and rolled somewhere under the desk and stayed there for several hours while I was drooling at the temperatures. 51c was Maximum temperature I was able to get on this GPU, and this is during summer with 25-30c outside. Fantastic! Without tweaking with factory clocks, the GPU boosts itself to 1978mhz. I am certain you can push it even further with overclocking, however I personally don't see any need right now for that. Noise: Card is virtually silent. Previously I had two 980's with 3 fans each running in SLI. When I booted my PC it made so much noise that you get impression it will start hovering in a minute. This thing makes literally no sound under full load. I was even checking it couple of times, are the fans working? Its really silent. The looks: well what can i say? personally i like them, Cooler is nice white glow to it which perfectly matches my systems theme, and overall the build quality is great, card is sturdy thanks to back-plate and has a nice white led MSI logo on the side. Now setting all this aside the main reason why we all buy this - Gaming. Its Perfect for this. Previously I could not get a good performance from any card at 1440p resolution, however this one changes everything. Its a first card out there that can support this resolution fluently for years to come. I tried various game, just put EVERYTHING on maximum and it simply rips those games apart with silent performance, great fps ( Rise of the Tomb Raider all on Max dx12 = 100-130 fps range. Insane. ), and stays Cool. This is first card that I ever owned which is silent, cool, and performs really well. Want a fluid careless gaming? This card is for you. Highly Recommended Product. Cons: well I would assume its the price. However you pay for a high quality product here that performs fantastically.
