No, the Turbo cooler is pretty terrible and the GTX 11 series is coming out soon

You'd get more performance, but you're better off waiting for the GTX 11 series as @JDE said.

Why pay full price when the 1080 will likely surpass the 1080Ti in performance for hundreds of dollars less?

It's about a 35% performance uplift. Honestly I wouldn't. I'd just wait for the 2080 this summer or fall.
