Any reviews on this? I've been watching for the Zotac 1080 mini to go on sale but it doesn't have a very good voltage regulation section.

I'd be hesitant about these cards.

I'm a small time Eth miner, out of the 16 cards I have 2 are the gigabyte 1070 mini's. So far I've had to RMA both my gigabyte mini's in a period of about 6 months. All my other cards are zotac, evga and asus and have not had a single issue. This is a 1080 so maybe it will be different but I would go with the zotac 1080 mini instead if it's an option for you.

FYI - All my cards are set up to be very low power usage and well cooled (they only reach about 50C-58C), the cards power limit is probably around 60% yet it still failed.


EDIT:
$30 more but way better quality card (zotac 1080 mini):

or if outside of NY this would be better deal (but OOS):

I have the full sized gigabyte 1080 which has 3 fans - I can't imagine a situation where this mini version isn't running the fans at 100% like a jet engine unless it's downclocked.

Interesting. I have the same cards and also have had about a 20% failure rate. They do fix them quick though.

It's almost like this is not a regular sized card.

EDIT: Never-mind the below stats are for the 1070 version. 1080 will be less, about 25-27MH/s max.
Stock ~27-28MH/s
Tuned ~31-32MH/s:
GPU: ~1150MHz to 1300MHz
Memory: + ~500Mhz
Nvidia Profiler: (disable force P2 for CUDA)

Really depends on what you want to mine but for ETH it would probably be 1060's, 1070's, rx480's and rx580s if you can find them at a reasonable price (which is unlikely).
