    Looking to see what every ones thoughts are on the latest cards and which one you prefer.

    I have seen some of them have their own PCB boards for increased durability and performance.

    I have also heard that OC'ing on many of them isn't working out well (except Asus for some reason)


    What did you or will you go with?

    It does matter actually if you plan to OC you'll want one with improved components. Also, I plan to water cool so the stock cooler is going in the trash anyway :p

    You can find the cards in stock with this site.

    If you are water cooling, reference will be more than fine. Nvidia beefed up the power supply to the GPU by twice the amount compared to Titan X-P if I am remembering it correctly.

    I've read on a few sites that some of the cards don't OC well. Seems like Asus does this well over some of the others but I normally get Evga...because Asus support is the worst.

    Yeah that. Power requirements for these Pascal cards are so low that even the stock cards have more than enough power on tap.

    Yeah Asus support isn't exactly fantastic here either. EVGA seem to offer the best in the USA.

    Asus has much better support in the US, but EVGA is still by far the best. :)

    Evga warranty is also still valid if you take the original cooler off.

    Plus...I've also invested in the bridge, and power links. Power links are AWESOME as it cleans up the look quite nicely.
