Only £55 more than the equivalent Zotac GTX 1070. Gotta have some heat. Almost considered cancelling the MSI GTX 1070 Quicksilver I ordered for £311.
Loving the Amazon specs. Not often you find a graphics card with a hard drive.

Seems like a good price for a 1080, although I still have to pay last months rift off.

The rift is the reason for me buying this card :'(

Is the mini version supposed to cost more than a non mini?

Thanks.....but to be honest for a GTX 1070 the MSI Quicksilver is about as quick as you can get. If the GTX 1080 were around £400 I'd have gone for one.

You always pay more for small form factor components weirdly, just look at SFX power supplies

That one is £514 to be fair right now. Usually they are. These Zotac minis are usually around the same price. The Palit duals are the cheapest of the cheap though other than those very basic MSI cards.

Conclusion

Ay .. close but not quite a cigar? The ZOTAC GTX 1080 Mini looks great, terrific really and offers excellent game performance, no doubt there either. However, the smaller form factor does pose a negative trend when it comes to cooling as, yeah, that remains a bit iffy to be brutally honest. When gaming you'll often be in the 70 Degrees C range and at one point we even peaked to 77 Degrees C. Given a smaller cooler that's all fine by itself as long as the card will remain silent, and that it isn't. At IDLE the fans keep spinning. Once the card heats up under gaming then you'll hear a very decent amount of airflow coming from the fans and that cooling fin surface area. We measured 41~42 dBA, which is a number we hardly see anymore these days. Now that doesn't make the card loud, but definitely moderately audible. Next to that, this ZOTAC card also exhibits coil whine, in high FPS games obviously the most. The whine is at an audible level. The thing is, for a card in this price category these things should not happen. Also for a dual-fan cooling solution that is still 21cm in length we feel that the cooling performance is a bit on the low side. The temps and fan noise levels I can live with, the coil whine however is bit of a buzz-kill (pardon the pun).

Shocker! , a card designed with small form factor in mind doesn't have as good acoustics and thermals as a full size card who would have thought
