Drool dude. All the power in the palm of my hand. Whereas most third-party designs seek to increase cooling capacity, the goal of this card was to be the smallest 1080 Ti possible. What that means is that it doesn't perform too well in the cooling department, however.
Check all the reviews online and you'll see that it easily hits its thermal limit (84C by default I think?) and throttles the clock speeds to compensate. I can confirm my card performed exactly in this manner, unfortunately (gaming at 1650 ~ 1750 Mhz clock speed vs. 1900 ~ 2050 or so possible with proper cooling).
Note that this isn't exactly terrible for a 1080 Ti, in fact its exactly the same way the Nvidia reference designs perform. But who wants to pay for the best videocard on the market, then see the clock speeds throttle!?!? This is what led me to attempt water-cooling in the first place.
It's a 1080ti, you can't beat it- because it's a mini it does get a bit hot when under heavy load for a long time, but not high enough to start worrying about.
Massive power in two fans. This thing will fit almost anywhere, and while it will run pretty hot by default, you can fix this with a custom fan curve in a program like MSI Afterburner. I got my max temp down from 84 to 75 by adjusting the curve.
No brainer since it is the best mini card on the market atm.
Mini and fast good power delivery specially when you plug out the fans
