Custom cooled GTX 1080 spotted

Pictures of the first custom cooled GTX 1080 have appeared online, though this Galax GTX 1080 may not be the founders edition replacement that you have been looking for.



Read more on Galax's custom cooled GTX 1080.

Looks just as "nice" as the old 290x stock cooler. And like the 290x cooler, it doesn't look like it belongs on a high end card. I'll mark that down as a FAIL I think.

Nobody should buy a card without a full backplate if you wanna use a dedicated soundcard otherwise you're just asking for major EMI.

Or... you should buy a soundcard decent enough to have it's own EMI shielding, like most of the decent ones have now...

This did not take long. Usually its a couple of months before you see nonreference cards.

This will be good for watercoolers as I'm guessing this will be the cheap version due to having a bit of a poo cooler.

Well if it's cheaper than most due to the cooler, then I can see why it would be a good option for people who are planning on watercooling.

Or go external to avoid EMI all together!

Is this really legit? I have a feeling it's fake due to the obvious post-it note. Looks super weird
