Not really. The over clock on these cards is quite poor, whether water or air, and most of these cards are so quiet that it makes water cooling pointless.

"GPU costs approx £420"

How is this a deal when you can currently buy a 1070 for £370?

correct, I believe that people is never tried to do anything at all in regards to add some side fans etc... or fans in the right spots. They prefer the lighting to show off, while the pc is frying especially the MB.
Cannot believe there are pro gamers out there letting the gpu reaching temperatures of 82celsius (as seen on many you tube videos games) same in my pc with same GPU would be 70 celsius at most but only because I am too lazy to adjust the fan graph on the MSI afterburner before I play, otherwise that goes down by another 6c. and in a room temperature of 24c.

closer to gtx 1080 price than a normal gtx 1070
Pay a bit extra get a 1080 with air cooling with much higher performance, it makes no sense at all to buy a water cooled 1070 for nearly the price of a 1080
The nearest priced good cooling GTX1080 is £619.99, still another £120. That's quite a bit more.

The MSI GTX1080 Aero card looks very flimsy for £579.99

I put the thread as the same card elsewhere costs £520. Like myself, there are people with water cooled PC rigs who has an older GPU and looking for replacement on budget. Yes, cheaper option is to get cheaper gtx 1070 and add a water block.

It looks very flimsy from the photo you have seen wow there is some accurate information right there I'm my experience msi coolers are spot on and the founders edition Is 599 and there is nothing wrong with the stock cooler there very well designed on these cards. And if water cooling is a must because your a serious gamer then buy a serious gaming card and get the 1080. If you splash out 500 quid on a 1070 all you will do is wish you bought the 1080 and then sell your 1070 and lose money
I'd just grab the kfa2 blower and a GPU block for <£450. Same performance but massively higher resale value cause you have an air cooler.
