MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Pictured

Feast your eyes on the first pictures of MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X graphics card. The card features the thickest (2.5 slots thick) and bulkiest version of MSI's iconic TwinFrozr VI cooling solution. The company is gunning for making this the quietest air-cooled GTX 1080 Ti money can buy, and so it invested "heavily" on beefing up the heatsink, the underlying heatspreaders, and tuning the fans to focus on low-noise, while keeping the GPU far away from the 82°C thermal-throttle. The muscular cooler shroud has an RGB LED-lit "GeForce GTX" badge besides the MSI dragon badge. The underlying PCB has a strong VRM that draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. We expect the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X to be launched around mid-April.

I'm the only one
Do I need to re mortgage to buy it like with all 1080 cards?

I always like that MSI's TwinFrozr VI design.
Cool and quiet!
I uses to think it was quiet until i got the gigabyte 3 fan system. My MSI card always ran at max temp so wasnt really happy about that.

Well I never hear the GPU fans spinning of my MSI card, they spin around 70% max I think since it never gets too hot, just over 60s max.
My case is noise insulated though but the thing I do hear is the 140mm bottom intake fan.

If your MSI GTX1xxx Gaming card got so hot there was something wrong with it or you didn't have any airflow in your case,
as I said my card only gets just over 60s sduring summer with 27 degrees C ambient temp with AB custom fancurve.

Some work better for others, however unfortunately for me the MSI did not cool as good as the Gigabyte. With the new card max temp is 72C and that's hours after gaming BF1. Sure my room may not bad a cool and sure the air flow may not be a good as others however I saw a massive difference. If i set my MSI to 92 as max temp it would hit max temp. For me I just found the gigabyte 3 fan seems to be much better. It was a shame as I did like the MSI.

@GreiverBlade @eidairaman1 this sounds odd to me, all GTX1xxx cards with this MSI twinfrozr cooler run very cool as far as I know,
even more so when using a custom fan profile with afterburner, sounds more like he bought a FE version....
