    Car hoses used for the radiator are under pressure to raise the boiling point.
    Also check out speedflow compression fittings.

    Thats not really a good comparison though, and this is getting heavily off topic :thumbup:

    Back in the day when Cathar was making waterblocks and everyone was using camry heatercores and making their own shrouds i understood the need for hose clamps and barbs.

    Now days i find it easier not having to use tools.

    My 980ti matrix platinum cost $1,400 16 months ago. This is 25-35% faster for the same money? Not bad at all.

    I've been seeing on other forums people say cards like the sea hawk aren't silent because the pump is constantly going?

    Garden hose fittings are cheap plastic rubbish. Compression fittings are used all the time in water and pressure sewer reticulation for PE pipes and they are much better under high pressure.
    Both are good though, but for them to work they need to be installed properly.

    I have decided not to get a 1080 Ti unless I can get a HoF or Classified with waterblock preinstalled.
    My 980 Ti was $1149 and 1080 was $1249. I'm not surpsrised the 1080 Ti is 1349 :)

    980ti is less than 5% slower than 1070, so there's a benchmark for you.

    Not in everything, the 980ti seems to be faster in VR for some reason.

    Ordered a EVGA GTX 1080 FTW and wondered why price differences in options turns out there is a FTW and a FTW DT model just to make it confusing. Looking at quick search seems to be one that looks like FTW but doesn't have same base boost. Reordered non DT version which was like $20 more. :mad:

    I think this is the one I'm leaning towards. One of the highest clocks I've seen so far if not the highest. I'd rather know stock availability before ordering though. Good to see sites updating though!

    the gigabyte card looks good but is still expensive, would be a tough choice that or a FE card with a waterblock.

    Highest factory clock has no bearing on how high they will overclock though ....

    As in, they're revising the 1080 and keeping it along with the new 1080 ti?

    How do they then vary from 1. the original 1080 and 2. the ti?

    EDIT: I couldnt find that annoucement but i found the following ti review that says;

    1080 ti = 484GBs
    1080 = 320GBs

    So if the new is 352GBs, how will that improve performance? Due to it being memory bandwidth is it primarily gains at higher resolutions since they use more gddr?

    I find it interesting they'd split the market again, so we'll now have old 1080, new 1080 and the 1080ti. But maybe it'll work to keep the prices of the 1080 up and people buying (especially in favour of waiting for volta/vega).

    Crafty bastards.

    Hey guys,

    What's everyone's thoughts on G-Sync? I need to buy a new monitor to pair with this 1080ti and was thinking about the 27" G-Sync Predator.

    Will the 4ms response time be noticeable for games like CSGO? I've never really played with V-sync on in the past as I've always preferred maximum frames.
