Nvidia 1080 Ti

I'm looking to buy an NVIDIA 1080ti, which manufacturer is the best for processing and heat dissipation?

Any help would be appreciated!

Single Card or SLI?

Current Case?

SLI (if that means to have multiple GPU's)

No case right now but will find one after I pick the video cards

I believe GALAXY HOF is the best, but doubt you'll get is easily in Canada.
After that AOrus or ASUS or MSI. I think Asus is probably the easier one to get.

heat dissipation depends on a lot of factors, ventilation in your case is super important

You can remove the existing heats sink and can and add a water cooler or another air cooler if you don’t like the factory cooler.

Do you really need SLI?

He never said he needed SLI, he wasn’t even sure what it was, so I doubt he needs it.

Whoops sorry did not read the rest. The Strix is probably one of the best air cooled card out there but takes up 3 slots.

Yea sorry, I'm not familiar with GPU's anymore. I thought I'd ask around and get an idea before looking into it more myself

I know there are a lot of people with knowledge about GPU's on RFD

SLI - I have no clue what this means so I'm assuming I don't need it.

SLI means running 2 to 4 GPUs in one system, to either improve gaming or compute performance.

I'm happy with EVGA. I have a 1080ti Black Edition, which I believe is one in that series card (EVGA Founders Edition < Black < SC < SSC )

Don't shoot me for this but i use the asus founders edition one and its actually pretty quiet and gets rid of all the hot air instead of putting it back into the case.

Founders is worthwhile if going SLI.

Too much with aftermarket in dual or triple card setup.
