Yeah, go for it EVGA... like your joke of a 1080 FTW... the card that died under a year. It died twice in less than 12 months... got rid of it to an unlucky buyer on the third card.

If you think I will ever buy anything else from them, you are crazy.

So you complain of being sold a faulty product, which was not something EVGA did intentionally. Then you purposely go do the exact same thing...classy!

From what I've gathered from product reviews, Pascal doesn't really benefit from higher clocked RAM that much (unlike Vega), so why has EVGA done this? Where's the evidence that it really helps for gaming?

Truth be told the only cards I have had fail on me were all EVGA. I for that reason am VERY unlikely to ever run one again. Their power supplies on the other hand have served me well.

So since i already own a EVGA GTX FTW ti all i have to do is overclockthe Mhz to the memory clock to a total of 12,006 mhz on afterburner or precision X and it is the same as this elite?
Not really understanding why this is being offered as a "elite" model when ANYONE with a 1080ti FTW can do this?

People run their cards at 80c+ for extended periods and wonder why they don't last long. I had a Maxwell Titan pushing 400+ watts and it lasted as long as I owned it, 2 years, being thrashed. It lasted because I kept it cool.

That is exactly why I got the hybrid ftw3 so it runs no hotter then 48c at full load and it does its own boost to 1962mhz I don't see the need to push it any further as it voids my extended warranty for 10 years that I paid $60 for pretty sure if I use it right mount it right and keep it under 50c my warranty will last at least 5 years then I will get a new card that wont be a 1080ti cuz they wont make them anymore in 5 years hmmm lol.

you would hope so but I wouldn't count on it. I had them scrounge up a 9800 GTX+ on me. This has been a few years back but after reading other people's results in forums I had been cautiously optimistic that they wouldn't have any and I would end up with a GTX 460 or at least an "updated" GTS 250 replacement but nope...they still had at least one 9800 GTX+ laying around
