Received my MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X 8GB GDDR5X Graphics Card from Amazon.co.uk
Fitted and MSI Intel Z270 Gaming M3, i7 7700 works like a charm :D

Using this for a month now! 
Build quality of the card looks great through transparent walls. Also it has LEDs which can be controlled from MSI Command Centre and matches with MSI Intel Z270 Gaming M3 perfectly.
The card comes with 1HDMI 1 DVI and 3 Display ports  Easy multi-monitor setup.
While gaming the fans are very quiet compared to most of the other variants.
The temperature level does not increase much even when overclocked.
Overclocking using MSI afterburner works without any problem.

Didnt run any games on 4K yet, 1080p gives 140-170 fps in Battlefield 1 without overclocking (even in silent/low performance mode, idk how) on Ultra settings!
So far I am very happy with the card and enjoying gaming.
