So finally finished my review from the GTX1080Ti!! :D
Did a small skit also in the beginning of the video in an abandoned Russian Rocketbase :D
MSI has finally released their Gaming X series 1080Ti. As with all other Gaming X series videocards from MSI there is nothing bad to say here. Twin Frozr VI cooling solution is one of the best on the market and one of the better technologies in it is the ZeroFrzor which means that this videocard is mostly totally passive meaning the fans on the card only spin up when the card reaches  60c+ temperatures. This means that surfing the web or editing videos your PC, in terms of the videocard, is pretty much noiseless. If you launch a game then the fans will eventually spin up but hardly make any noise even then. With all of this quietness does come great power! This card is meant for 4k gaming at 60FPS or 1080p and 165FPS+ so if you have a proper 165 to 240Hz monitor you can feel the entire benefit of those extra Hertz!
In any case there is hardly anything bad to be said about the card.. maybe the 1080Ti lineup should overall be a bit cheaper and maybe the Gaming X models red colour scheme could be a bit different.. specially for nVidia cards.

I also ran through some benchmarks and here are the results of them:

My test PC:

Intel Core i7 5960X 4.6GHz
MSI X99A Godlike Gaming Carbon
32GB G.Skill 3200MHz DDR4

3DMark Fire Strike ? 24,184p
3DMark Time Spy DX12 ? 10,078p
3DMark Fire Strike Ultra ? 7,228p
3DMark Fire Strike Extreme ? 13,657p

Battlefield 1 ? 1080p ultra - 186FPS & 200% resolution scale 91FPS
Grand Theft Auto V ? 1080p ultra - 102FPS
Tom Clancys: The Division - 1080p ultra - 140FPS
Hitman DX12 - 1080p ultra - 169FPS

Score 9 out of 10!

Great performance
Great cooling
Passive cooling under 60c

Pricing could be better on the 1080Ti-s
Needs more colour freedom on the Gaming X models
A mechanical switch could come handy so that in one position the fan would always be spinning, meaning below 40c temps in idle.
