The power consumption is silly on some of these custom cards whilst not really offering any extra headroom over the reference design.

Nice performance of course regardless.
The same limitations apply to all pascal cards so headroom is more or so a myth these days lol.

I've almost pulled the trigger and bought a Zotac card a couple of times, but something always seemed to make be back off at the last moment and get EVGA, ASUS, or MSI. I guess I'm worried about their build quality/QC, as well as their customer service should something go wrong.
Same. I was close on the 980ti and again on the 1080ti, but went with an old familiar brand instead. This time it was more to do with responses I got from retailers tho. I was more than a little eager to get a new GPU this time around, probably because of the gap between gens, so when I was given "early April" in reply to availability of the Strix, I pre-ordered it. Felt optimistic when the next day a review of the card popped up here! Indeed got it the 2nd week in April!

There isnt a lot of diff between the models, less than any I can recall in history. It really boils down to temps, noise, and looks! What I would say is, this is my first card (the Strix) with a greater than 2-slot cooler, and Im that impressed by it, I dont think I'll go back to 2-slot again if given a choice. Out of the box, set it to OC mode, it sat at about 2G in gaming, peaked at 68C. With a small OC on both the mem and core (generally games at 2025), it remains quiet and peaks at 69C, havent tried to push it further. The Zotac looks like a beast too.
