The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW is fast, relatively quiet, and a fit for most computer cases thanks to its moderate dimensions and dual-slot design.

And that advantage is multiplied by the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW’s efficient ACX 3.0 cooling. The new generation of EVGA’s vaunted custom-cooling solution features a pair of massive 100mm fans that shut off in low power scenarios and contain double ball-bearings that help them last up to four times longer than competing cards, EVGA claims.
