Personally i think it looks to have a face only a mother could love, and even then she would have to be high on crack.

Nvidia seems to have followed XFX's work ruining their cooler shrouds with triangles.

Not just you, it looks ridiculous. Works alright if you want your PC to look like a transformer or something like that. If anything they should make the reference cooler sleek, kinda like the Fury X and Fury Nano

Nahh, don't like it at all... Looks too much "blingy" in my opinion. Sleek designs is what it's all about!

They could have just made the current shroud a slightly darker colour and it would have done it.

The Titan style cooler looks sleek and professional but this looks like an 80's abortion.

What about keeping the same cooler as they did for the 700 & 900 series and just refine more instead of coming up with a new design.

IMO they were the best coolers that Nvidia as done.

No pictures of the 1080ti only the standard 80 and 70, I don't think we will see the 1080ti till 2017

Imy not fussed about the cooler it's all about waterblock and how soon they will come after release

I'm hoping these are just concept pieces because they are just awful, the reference vidia cards are perfection as they are. (If it ain't broke)
