Zotac with the triple slot cooler was one of the quietest, but on the 1080ti once the other manufactures moved into a 2.5 cooler the zotac didnt seem that much better.

A revision happen on 1080s, if im not mistaken regarding the memory, and in some cases they ended using the 1080ti coolers, to what i recall, MSI and Asus announced these revised versions as 11gbps. I would try to get one of those, both MSI and Asus are pretty good overall cards, and the GTX1080 produce less heat than the GTX1080ti. I leave you a couple of reviews of this revised versions,

Guru3d MSI GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING X PLUS with all new 11 Gbps 8GB
ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX OC with 11 Gbps GDDR5X

Here is an example of those cards in retail
ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix Gaming GeForce GTX 1080 Advanced Edition Graphics Card ROG-STRIX-GTX1080-A8G-11GBPS

Zotac AMP doesn't have 3 fans, the AMP Extreme does.

Those two - Zotac AMP and iChill X3 are just the ones I'm having trouble to decide between.

If only there are sound test videos of both.

I will not try to get any of the others because they cost much more. Stop veering off the topic. I created that list for a reason.

Found the iChill x3 sound test, pretty solid result.

It seems that this one has it all - affordable, performance without overclocking, cooling, and low noise.

Actually, it seems that 1070ti will come out soon, with basically the same performance as 1080.
