I'm about ready to upgrade to a GTX 1080 video card but have been reading about issues with overheating (NVIDA) and coil whine (ASUS). Has anyone had a satisfactory experience with a GTX 1080 card so far?

Thanks,
Gordon

I made a mistake in my original post - it's EVGA cards that are reported to be overheating (not NVIDA) - and EVGA has acknowledged that there is a problem.

No problems here with GTX 1080 cards.

Thanks David, but which GTX 1080 brand did you buy (EVGA, ASUS, MSI, etc.) ?

I've installed a Zotac 1080 Amp Extreme. it's a Beast of a card, had to remove a DRIVE BAY, to make it fit. It will produce amazing 4K on my 70" screen. I have it set to run the fans at 100% above 50deg C. Moderately loud but not about flight noise. Never gets above 60deg C. As of today nothing will touch it for fps@4k.
