    Does the FTW's cooler exactly 2 slots thick or thicker than 2 slots?

    Pretty sure SC's is exactly 2 slots thick, but I never saw a proper image of the FTW side on.

    It's still exactly two slots thick, but it's 0.958 inches taller and 1.2 inches longer than the SC Black.

    So there's open-box SC2 in a microcenter nearby for $705 after tax. Wondering if I should jump on that one at this point in time or patiently wait for x70 volta instead.

    Do the [H] thing, go for it! You might be waiting 6 months for that x70 Volta. Think of all the productive gaming you can get done in that time! :D

    These prices are bullshit. 1080 Ti's should be $650 or less by now.

    Why? They're still selling well and they were only released 5 months ago.
