    The video I posted also explained to me why EVGA owners, have to use XOC instead of using Afterburner, even if they wanted to.
    Afterburner will only run one of the three fans, and that is totally not an option.

    For me even before I installed my New 1080 Ti FTW3, I have never liked Afterburner, always used XOC for all my EVGA Cards. That reminds me thou, got to remove that piece of crap today...LoL

    That liquid metal is difficult to apply and a little drop anywhere else can make a bad short. Applied it once on my FX 6350 and temperature correction was in order of testing error.

    And if you want to have some "fun", try to take it off.

    For those a bit more daring:
    Re: the above post from earlier, I just saw this at Tweak Town

    Afterburner is now capable of plotting graphics with a bunch of metrics that are supported in the software, including GPU temperatures, CPU clocks, and frame times. If there are sudden, or frequent drops in frame rates, or GPU temperatures start getting out of control - you'll know, and can plot them. Again, perfect for reviewers!

    Yep. If you have the ICX cooling (I have ACX) you are locked into XOC as Afterburner will run the secondary fans at default. To get rid of XOC, especially the horrible Server software, this is why my next GPU will NOT be EVGA. For anyone who actually games with their gaming hardware and wants the OSD displayed, the XOC server software is a nightmare IMHO. EVGA doesn't fix the existing issues and brings new issues with new releases. AB, on the other hand, has none of those previously mentioned OSD issues, is moving to support UWP games and even Vulcan. It will be years if ever when EVGA catches up to Unwinder.

    I'm not saying MSI does not make good products, but I've not heard good things about their support and return policies in the past. Even a couple of our members have gone thru rough times, trying to return a bad gpu . Just do some research on MSI and there support / returns ratings. I can find lots of articles ...here is just one Cliff.

    Their(MSI's) support isn't a problem for me here in Germany, the store where I'm buying it, is responsible for repair or replacement
