How do you guys like the new ASUS GTX 1080 ti Poseidon, I've been thinking on going with that card, wanted the evga 1080 ti kingpin but the wait + too spendy + water block = too much to spend right now. The asus gpu seems like a really good card from what I've read, you guy test soo many different types of cards whats your opinion on the asus1080 ti poseidon. Thanks..enjoy

Tom Logan (OC3D.TV - www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmwhCHLuIZg) thought the Poseidon performed great, but didn't really like the look of it.

I saw that vid thanks and agree with him the lighting thing is a bit much but it can be turned off at least, I've been having a hard time finding a card do to the mining craze..

If you'd be happy with an air cooled card, evga's icx seems to be pretty good www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/2890-evga-...iew-benchmark/page-3

Looks like they have them at Newegg - www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item...14-487-337-_-Product

EDIT - just came across this - www.anandtech.com/show/11501/zotac-showc...-1080-ti-video-cards - watercooled gtx1080ti mini by Zotac. Not available yet. But hopefully soon. Watch out for reviews and pricing.

On Air, the Poseidon is as good as other cards and not basically a waste of a Waterblock. Not that it's a bad cooler - but going for a spezific card that has a waterblock on it, without using it, is not worth it imho.

On Water, the card is amazing. So far, every card seems to be able to boost to 2GHz (stable, without dropping) eith decent temperatures. The great thing about this card is, that you can use it's air-cooler to assist the watercooling loop, which allows for lower fan speeds or a smaller radiator.

If you don't want to do a custom loop (time consuming & expensive), but still want low temps, etc., then this is not the card for you - something with an AiO (either from the manufacturer or an aftermarket upgrade kit) would be the right choice then. If you wan't to Watercool on a budget, a FE card + EKs new Aluminium kits is the way to go.

I like the Aesthetics, because its base colour works great with my Gunmetal-Grey case and the LEDs are controllable - but that's just me.
