    i have a trifan one in sig its deece you need to tweak fan curves.
    id recommend you get a oc binned one as mine craps out a round 2ghz and sits between 1800-1900ish if you want easier oc or more perf
    glad to see these cards drop to a more reasonable 1k usd too i paid that for mine posted from ebay comp alliance on special id highly recommend using them
    As for reliability the hardware is all fixed now and are excellent imho the oc is as easy as keep temps low and up power limit and maybe +50-100mhz on core and its all auto voltage etc
    The drivers however... Fuck they are absolutely aweful. Nvidia is buggy atm and needs a massive ui overhall

    Oh and u need a decent psu id recommend 650w+ as these cards suck down 250-300+ depending on power limit

    well ideally you want one that overclocks well, most 2080tis oc to some degree some better than others, if that doesnt matter to you just buy the cheapest one.

    Both friends I play with regularly seem to have a lot of driver crashing with their 2080s.

    I have a Galax 2080 Ti OC black, which I've had for about 3 months. I chose this one due to the form factor so that it can fit in my mATX PC which has an add in card (10gbE nic), so I was limited by length but also the thickness of the card. I also chose it because it has a 300-A chip, which I promptly flashed to a 380W Galax bios.

    I have the Micron ram and have had no issues with it whatsoever, though I will note this the memory is definitely temperature sensitive. When overclocking for bench I can run ~ +1000mhz on water (~40C), however on air I could only get about +500 stable (~70C).

    This cooler is ofcourse not suitible for 380W TDP at reasonable temps, but for its size it did pretty well, as it does have a full cover vapor chamber like the FE cards. I typically ran a custom curve which held 1950-2000mhz @ 950mv (~300W) with fan noise reasonable (~75%) at 70C (with liquid metal on die), though I have been blessed with an excellent bin.

    In the end though, I bought an Alphacool Eiswolf full cover AIO, which I run at 127% TDP @ 2145Mhz/+750 ~ 45C (liq metal).

    Just a side note on this cooler, it is pretty good though I've recently had issues with grind/clicking noise from the pump when the card warms up, this only happens when the card is mounted horizontally, when mounted vertically there is no issue. I've checked the coolant and it is full, I'm not sure if the issue is due to card flex or what, but repositioning the lines, relocating and flipping the radiator don't help when the card is horizontal. There are quite a few other people having this issue, so I'm not sure I would recommend it unless you're mounting vertically.

    I noticed that it uses micron chips, i was a bit worried at first but Micron would have sorted out any issues by now.

    There is cases of people having to RMA 2 or 3 cards in a row. It's clearly got issues and YES some of these people were given ones with Samsung memory, so don't think it's immune.
    Having said that, plenty of people have no issues.
