  1. Sorry for the dumb question but can I SLI this FTW2 with a FTW? Or do I have to buy another FTW ? I'm considering getting a second 1080 to SLI.

  2. Card blows up cause of cheap pcb components > changes cooler,names it ICX FTW2 > blows up again > changes cooler,names it FTW3…..

  3. Hey Paul! I'm ordering the EVGA 1080ti FTW3 when it's released. But I'm curious, should I use their single split cord, with the 8-pin connection and the 6+2 connection? Or use two separate 8-pin cords? I've heard that using 2 separate cords is better for power than the split cords…

  4. A fuze that forces you to RMA the card?!? WTF! That sounds more like EVGA are not confident in their cooling solution. Just like their "we were building a new one before the scandal broke". Why? Because they already knew about the issue?

  5. Does all this work just as well with Linux, or does it need windows? Does it work without the OS involvement?

  6. Man…SOOOO many GTX 1080's out… which one to get? I don't want to spend more than about $600. What is the best one for the money?

  7. Finally! a graphics card review with footage of it plugged in and on. For the life of me i couldn't find footage of this card with the RGB lit up, or the fans not spinning at idle.

    Thanks Paul, now I know this is the card for me.
