MSI have introduced their new GTX 1080 Ti Armor and Aero GPUs, both of which come with custom cooler designs and with stock and overclocked models.
The GTX 1080 Ti Aero is designed to offers a similar design to Nvidia's Founders Edition, with a more workstation-esque aesthetic and a price point that will likely be priced similarly to reference solutions.  This design will come in both version with Nvidia reference clock speeds or with a small factory overclock. 
MSI's GTX 1080 Ti Armor come with MSI's Armor cooling solution, which uses two fans and an aluminium heatsink to cool the GPU. The Armor will be powered by dual 8-pin PCIe power connections and will come with either Nvidia reference clock speeds or a factory overclock of 1531MHz/1645MHz base/boost. 
At the high-end MSI's previously announced GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X will remain supreme, with the highest factory overclock of the bunch and a small memory overclock.

First MSI Gaming X, then EVGA, now this. What is it with these bad cooler designs?

Hopefully Galax/KFA2 will show them how its done! Also table shows the boost OC clock on the armor OC has a typo.

But considering such a miniscule difference in the clocks. I wonder how much of a spread in price these are.Quote

1" of plastic away from looking like a nice card.Quote

Now if the whole card was covered/closed off, Sides and all, This would look much better.Quote

The Amour isn't too bad but that green is horrible, now if they just got rid of the red on their gaming series that would be an improvementQuote
