Anything quieter than a strix for air cooling a 2080 ti?

Hello,

I've installed the artic in the past and it was reasonably quiet but I don't think it was better than a strix. Is there anything better that is air cooled? I do not want to do liquid cooling.

Thanks.

Reviews are limited. ATM, Quiet BIOS profile on Strix is the quietest air cooled.

Thanks. Hopefully someone will make an after market cooler that competes.

Just a warning, its probably more for reference cards, but there has been a trend this past week of RTX2080Ti dying on users, lots of threads on nvidia forums and reddit. I seen some yotube videos about it, and some seem to think its the memory that its getting hot, above what GDDR6 tolerates. It seems its alot more happening on reference cards, but i seen some zotac also, not sure on Asus or MSi, specially the Asus ROG STRIX seems MIA, so its uncertain how it will behave with this early deaths.

I would probably wait a month to see this get fixed or at least to be able to see its not a wide spread plague on the cards. Sadly my MSI RTX2080Ti DUKE just shipped a couple of days ago, hope it doesn't die on me, i cant order the Asus as it comes with 2dp 2hdmi, i need 3dp.

We are still missing reviews of GPUs that are not out yet, like EVGA FTW3 Ultra, Galaxy HOF, Gigbayte Aeorus 3 slot (until now i only seen the gaming and OC). And in time we probably will see the MSI Lightning, EVGA Kingpin and Asus Mars.

I dont think we will see 3rd party coolers anymore, but if you are into that, i would suggest to contact Arctic, Prolimatech and Raintek to see if their current GPU coolers fit the RTX2080Ti.
