bit of advice please

Im torn between getting hold of an asus poseidon 1080 ti as i plan on custom loop in my next major re-vamp or just getting a good air cooled card , but i don't really think im up too stripping down a air cooled card at a later date to water block it ( even though TTL makes it look easy )

Grab the Poseidon if the funds will allow or the MSI 1080ti seahawk EK X and you'll be good to go

thanks for the comment , i'm leaning towards the poseidon , as it seem a waste to buy a good air cooled card only in the future to strip off the air cooler

Get the Poseidon that way there's no faffing about and you have your warranty intact
