Zotac with the triple slot cooler was one of the quietest, but on the 1080ti once the other manufactures moved into a 2.5 cooler the zotac didnt seem that much better.

A revision happen on 1080s, if im not mistaken regarding the memory, and in some cases they ended using the 1080ti coolers, to what i recall, MSI and Asus announced these revised versions as 11gbps. I would try to get one of those, both MSI and Asus are pretty good overall cards, and the GTX1080 produce less heat than the GTX1080ti. I leave you a couple of reviews of this revised versions,

Guru3d MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X PLUS with all new 11 Gbps 8GB
ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX OC with 11 Gbps GDDR5X

Here is an example of those cards in retail

GameMi - Intel i9 9900K + Gigabyte Z390 AM + Asus RTX2080Ti Strix | MiniMi - Intel i7 8700K + ASRock Z370ITX + MSI RTX2080Ti
StreaMi - Intel i9 7940X + AsRock X299 Taichi + Asus GTX1080Ti Strix | WorkMi - AMD 1950X + AsRock X399 Taichi + MSI GTX1080

Zotac AMP doesn't have 3 fans, the AMP Extreme does.

Those two - Zotac AMP and iChill X3 are just the ones I'm having trouble to decide between.

If only there are sound test videos of both.

I will not try to get any of the others because they cost much more. Stop veering off the topic. I created that list for a reason.

Found the iChill x3 sound test, pretty solid result.

It seems that this one has it all - affordable, performance without overclocking, cooling, and low noise.

Actually, it seems that 1070ti will come out soon, with basically the same performance as 1080.
