For those of you who live where it's hot...
Back on July 3rd, 2016 there was this announcement:
MSI unveiled a pair of APAC-exclusive DUKE Edition graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 DUKE Edition, and the GeForce GTX 1070 DUKE Edition. The two are characterized by a large triple-fan cooling solution that's optimized for the tropical climate of its target markets; and features a custom-design PCB that appears to be similar in design to the Gaming X series cards.

The cooler is longer than the PCB itself. A back-plate covers the PCB. The cooler features a twin-stack aluminium-fin cooler that's ventilated by three 90 mm fans, an RGB LED-lit "DUKE" logo tops the cooler. The GTX 1080 DUKE Edition, in its "OC Mode" offers clock speeds of 1708 MHz core, 1847 MHz GPU Boost, and 10108 MHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory; while the GTX 1070 DUKE Edition, in its "OC Mode" offers 1607 MHz core, 1797 MHz GPU Boost, and 8108 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory.
Well, now Newegg is selling it here, for $560 after a $20 MIR.

Make sure you take into account that this card is 312mm long. I also would not be surprised if it's noisier than MSI's "Gaming" cards.

Edit: I'm a little concerned about the warranty support for this. The card is not shown on MSI's US website and it was originally for another market. You may want to check with MSI first.
