The worst? It's from a fairly obscure company. One i know very like about: Inno3D. Anyone know anything about them?
Reference cards are all the same. and Inno3D are fine. There will be no difference to an ASUS or EVGA. Just the warantee and customer support may differ (could be better than asus. but who knows)

Thanks all for the feedback so far.
Last question (at least for now). I'm torn between these two monitors. Any and all feedback on thiswould be greatly appreciated:
32" Viewsonic
Or
32" AOC

Tough one. They both offer identical specs, even the refresh rate. Gotta say I do like the minimalist look of the Viewsonic though.

The biggest difference i can see is that the aoc is a va screen, while the viewsonic is ips.

Go for the IPS IMO.

Ok. Got the 1080ti, got the waterblock on order, and am gearing up to get the show on the road.

My research indicates that B350 motherboards (specifically the vrms above the cpu) have a problem sustaining high overclocks for long periods, and that the x370 boards might be a better buy.

Anyone here had any experience to verify e whether the research is just smoke or if there is anything to it?

I'd say the opposite. IPS needs to be overclocked to reach higher refresh rates. Some games will present scanlines in doing so, e.g. RPGs where you have text windows.

VA colours are just as vibrant when viewing from optimal angle and can have a natural 144hz refresh rate.
I'm currently using an IPS gsync 3440p monitor. I regret buying it. My 27inch TN Panel was more enjoyable. Only advantage my current one has is the real estate.

I hated my TN panel. It was absolutely awful. BLB was like when a star comes out onto a dark stage and the spotlight follows them on. Mind you, TBF that was an Acer.

My panel overclocks OK from 60-70. Little bit of whine but that is to be expected.

You should try overclocking an ips from 60-144hz. its like it resents your request even though it will do it. And those scanlines when im playing destiny2, or logged into wow.. yuck.

All I would get is "Out Of Range" and then I would be screwed. You can't see what is going on and you can't get into safe mode.
