Let's have a look at EVGA's GTX 1080 Superclock and FTW versions, both of which offer higher clock speeds and lower prices than the Founders Edition. 

Right now two custom versions of Nvidia's GTX 1080 are available for pre-order right now from EVGA, both of which feature EVGA's new ACX 3.0 cooling system and are built with low power fan motors to decrease GPU power consumption.

Below is a table that compares the specifications of these GPUs, showing that EVGA's custom overclocked GPUs feature higher specifications and a lower price than Nvidia's Reference/ Founders Edition design, making EVGA's GPUs seem like much better value for money.

While the designs of the GTX 1080 FTW and SC has very similar specifications the FTW version offers the best all round package, offering beefier power circuitry, higher clock speeds and RGB Illumination for the EVGA GTX 1080 cooler on the side and beside the fans. 

The GTX 1080 FTW also features a larger custom PCB and a larger cooler, which should give this GPU cooler operating temperatures and potentially higher overclocks.

Right now you can Pre-order the ASUS GTX 1080 SC and FTW are available for Preorder at prices of £578.99 and £619.99 respectively at Overclockers UK, which a lower price than the cheapest Nvidia Founder's Edition GTX 1080.

Right now Scan has these same GPUs at prices of £630.42 and £641.39 in order to deceive consumers into thinking that the GTX 1080 Founder's Edition GPUs, that they currently have in stock, offers better value for money. This is an industry practice that is used by many retailers to convince buyers to buy what they have in stock over pre-ordering future upcoming products. 

Overclockers UK has a much more reasonable price on the GTX 1080 SC and FTW and is currently offering the cheapest price in the UK to Pre-order these aftermarket versions of the GTX 1080 GPU.

Just noticed a small mistake:
"Right now you can Pre-order the ASUS GTX 1080 SC and FTW are available for Preorder"

Yay. The FTW version has 2x 8 pin power connections. If I had the cash that's the one I'd be preordering.Quote

As i have said EVGA has nailed it again in terms of design and also IMO they didn't go over the top with LED light not like other companies.Quote
