You're going to get wrecked in downvotes since the 1070 came out and has same/better performance, newer features, and much less power consumption - and they're quite overclockable on air.

To be fair though, 1070s are still rarely in stock and highly price gauged at the moment, so if someone *has* to buy something right now this puts in the same $/perf ratio of the 1070. Also, of note, hackintoshes can't use the new gen of Nvidia or AMD cards yet.

I don't care about votes, I just wanted to share a good deal on an awesome card. I have two of these in an SLI setup and it's a MONSTER gaming/VR system, unfortunately I paid $650/ea for mine. Frown With this deal you can get a pair of liquid cooled 980 Ti's for under $1,000. No brainer in my book!

And sure the new 1070 is about the same price as this, and a base model 1070 OC'd is very comparable to a base model 980 Ti OC'd - but this model with the AIO cooler can be overclocked to higher speeds and therefore will outperform the 1070 when OC'd to the max. Also, the liquid cooler itself is worth about $100 new. So for the same price, you get a card that will perform better and has liquid cooling.

If you must buy it now, it is a deal for a liquid cooling card. In addition, you would need to advise people to get a big case if they already have a CPU liquid cooler.

In my opinion, I would think a buyer should make an informed decision instead of an impulsive purchase.

Great card that carries a premium for the water cooling loop over air cooled cards although I'm not sure if I'd be willing to drop $100 extra just for the water cooler . Keep in mind also that this is a reference board . I think this would be a smoking deal at $400 or less but not at this price .

This is the cheapest this card has ever been, and I guarantee it won't hit $400 for quite a long time, if ever. And you're not paying a $100 premium over a comparable 980 Ti card, even the cheapest EVGA 980 Ti still sells for $475. What I was saying is you're getting an extra $100 VALUE with the all-in-one cooler, since that's what the cooler sells for on its own, but you're not paying $100 for it.

Oh, and this is not a reference board. The reference cards are 1000Mhz base clock & 1070Mhz boost, this card is 1140Mhz & 1228Mhz boost. So it's 14% faster than a reference board in stock form, and the max OC is about 8% higher.

FYI the golden MSI edition which is in my opinion one of best 980 TIs out there was on sale for $370. This was a few weeks ago so I think there is a good chance we will see more 980 TIs around the $400 price tag we just have to wait for the new gen cards to come in stock. Given that this is a reference board but with a better cooler than any other air cooled card, $400 seems like a really great price for it . I agree that the cooler sells for $100 but worth probably less ( a normal 120 mm rad cooler is about $50 just for reference). And it is the exact same pcb as the reference just read some reviews dude- it has 6 phases and all that. The fact that they clocked differently than an actual reference card doesn't mean much if the pcb design itself remained the same.
