New GPU


[link to this post]
 
Finally settled on my next GPU.

EVGA GTX1080 FTW Hybrid.

Just waiting tentatively for the Vega launch in two weeks time before pressing the button, but the AIO cooling solution will likely give the Hybrid the edge for me.

Only because I've ordered one of these, so I need a card that will maintain 4K30 at least!

Plus I've got a particular build in mind.

They do a 1070 too, but I want the best 4K embrace possible, without taking out a mortgage on the Ti...

Not a massive fan of the cards that have a copper base and an aluminum radiator after seeing the corrosion (galvanic) and leak in a mates PC a few years ago. (I'm guessing this is one as the AIO tend to be and I've not seen anywhere that says that this has changed (it may have).

I'm guessing they have also improved it a lot to stop it being as much of an issue but any anti corrosion fluid they put into the loop would only be able to slow it down and not stop it.

I guess it hardly ever gets to the stage where it ends up leaking for 99.99999% of the people but after seeing it happen myself and it taking out a few parts I will stick to all 1 type of metal in my loop.

Don't fancy doing a custom loop yourself then?

Nah, can't be bothered with all that. I just love the performance of the 1080 hybrid. Gaming in 4K at 40°C? Should be quiet. smile
