Can someone else please make a joke about 'Reference Blower', as this is my day of rest.

Cos I'm God, ya know.

P.S. make it filthy and specific

I would strongly suggest getting a twin fan instead of reference. If you are unsure look at some benchmarks on Gamer Nexus on YouTube you can see in the gpu speeds. The gpu will get faster and faster then it will get to a high temperature then it will slow itself down to lower the temps. It is literally slowing itself down.

It is called Gpu boost 3.
I suggest getting a high quality 1070 or even a 980ti for less and you can put that extra money aside if you want to swap to the newest gpu in 3 years time. So instead of £600 now spend £400 now then put that £200 for the 1270 or something.

​Plus the 1070 will be more then enough to max out games on I presume your 1920x1080 monitor.

Too bad ref blowers don't cool the cards as well as they do the deals

It is what it is, not going to get better performance for 550 but you may be better off spending 10% more for a quieter cooler, and slightly faster speeds.

Not much point investing in a GTX 1080 if you're still running on a 1080p monitor unless you're trying to push that 144hz. Like you said a 1070 would be more than enough for 1080p in most circumstances.

I have a GTX1080 and never has it slowed itself down, i game at 1440p and turn all the games i play up to the highest settings.
I'm running msi afterburner so i can see if theres any slow down - and there hasn't been.
Games i play just incase someone thinks its freecell are;
Homefront The Revolution
Battlefield 4
Rainbow 6 Siege
Killing Floor 2
Unreal Tournament 3 - that game scales to whatever pc you have.
GTA V - the settings on scaling can bring a 1080 to its knees but it doesn't hit the 82c that thermal throttling occurs at.
I'm guessing airflow is key and i must be lucky.

I don't know why this is cold my 1080 cost me £700. Ok its not the best and its a reference but not a bad buy

£550 is still insane for a GPU! 1080 Ti will be coming soon so the existing cards might be reduced then.

Because this was £530 on Overclockers a week or so ago.

My hair dryer doesn't make this much noise

People need to understand that this card is either for those that want the cheapest 1080 or more likely those that want to remove the cooler and replace it with a waterblock.

Hot from me. Fantastic price. Although I'm holding out for the 1080ti myself
