From the temps I've seen from the founders edition, I'll be waiting for some aftermarket cards to grab my 1080ti. I'm also interested in better color options.

Reference if you are going to customer watercool. Wait for an aftermarket if you aren't. I have no temp problems at all with my reference while I'm waiting for the water cooling stuff but it is loud.

Thats whats warranty is for. The 1080ti card ive pre-ordered has 3 years warranty on it.  But usually GPU cards are usually pretty good no faults. 

 

Cards are usually tested before release. The reference design ive not heard any problem from anyone which has got theres. But yes there is allways a chance you get one of the card which has a problem. 

 

I would never say pre-order any games.

If you are really going to regret not getting the 1080 Ti Strix, you could just wait for it to come out...  Maybe just play a different game for a while until you get your Strix...

True, but i've had a look at the partner cards are they are like an extra £100+ on top of the FE.
