    Hey Kol12, if you watercool the card, you can get a less expensive one that is not pre-overclocked to the bleeding edge and do it yourself

    You read a lot about how these 2080ti's are supposed to be binned but I am not having much trouble keeping up with most other supposedly faster 2080ti's. I just took the first one I could get and flashed the bios and away we go.

    See how it handles BF5 in a few days.
    Also your temps sometimes are the same as mine, seeing how I get lots of my cold weather from Canada LoL

    I might disagree on the adding a closed loop water kit ....if you add that price to a cheap card ....price goes up quite a lot I think.

    Only after you build it the first time.
    After that you only will need the new block for the graphics card, and sometimes not even then.

    Since Pascal the overclock on these gpu's is more guided by temps than anything else. Even if you could throw voltage at the gpu it would not do much for you. To get the most out of it you really need to get a handle on the temps.

    Still a lot more money.....and more maintenance involved in the water kit ....draining and cleaning every 6 months to a year.
    I've thought about it .....still going to pass, at least for now.

    My old 1080Ti has beaten every other 1080Ti with no water cooling on it. Only cards I can't beat are the Titans and these new 2080Ti's and that was expected.
    This will change thou.....just got to wait a while longer.
