I'm seeing differences of £150 or more in some models, I've always had my GPU straight from Nvidia so I've never had to concern myself with the after market options, what's the best option out there? Is it worth paying extra for some?

Just decide based on the cooling solution of your choice. They're all the same chip so you'll be able to get similar clocks any way you go. I have the EVGA SC and I love it.

king pin edition for at least guaranteed clocks of 2 ghz+.

Not much difference in performance between any of the cards though. Even with the two founders edition I have I'm still overclocking to 2.038 ghz on core . Don't see much performance gain on the core though and it seems like majority of the boost is from memory.

All are fine really. I went Asus for the silence.

I've never had a problem with any of EVGA's GPUs. Granted I have a 1070, not a 1080ti

With fan speeds configured to a fixed 40dBA output, we finally start to see some distinction between these AIB partner cards. The other cards are all-or-nothing fan speeds, making them easier. ASUS is impressive, here: The ROG Strix runs cooler on the GPU, producing a 31.4C delta T over ambient value, which is a full 6C cooler than the next closest card – the Gaming X. The Gaming X has generally been one of the quietest cards on our bench. That card has now been dethroned by ASUS.

Next, the Gigabyte Xtreme Aorus, which doesn’t look great when these are all tested at stock speeds, is running 40.7C delta T. The FTW3 is last, but again, it is the most difficult to configure. You could get these temperatures lower and sacrifice other component temperatures, if so desired.

Power temperatures measured on the middle MOSFET, offset up, land the Strix again at the lead, with a 35.4C delta T measurement. EVGA’s FTW3 is the coolest for VRM components when all cards are configured to auto, but loses ground to ASUS here with its 40.4C delta T value, with MSI trailing at 42.1C delta T.

Finally, the VRAM module between the GPU and VRM measures at 52.7C delta T on the ASUS Strix card, where EVGA runs a 56.6C VRAM temperature, trailed by MSI at 57.9C.

With these noise-equalized tests, ASUS is the clear victor – and not in an insignificant way, in the GPU test. We’re excited about this new test procedure and will be rapidly expanding it for future reviews. It only really works when we’ve got a bunch of the same card, as comparing these numbers between multiple GPUs wouldn’t really make much sense. Still, we’ll play around with it as content continues to ramp.

Basically, under 40 dBA testing, they have the Strix 1080 ti performing the best.

That's why I got the strix. Highfive

Strix IMO.

It's f***ing slick with the RGB, quiet, and cool.

They are all gonna perform very similar. Still, went with the strix as well.
I can be patient, but I'm not waiting!

I have the Gaming X but I would have gotten the STRIX if I could have found it when I bought my card. The Gaming X was the first good AIB card I could find.

I bought the Gigabyte Xtreme and returned it as it had stability issues at stock, untweaked clocks/settings.
