Well... It is more expensive, but you get what you pay for right?

I totally agree on the blower GPU's... I had the evga 980ti classifed (Which I gave to my son who had an R9 380) and even though I have very good circulation within my case, my temps did shoot up on average 5-10 degrees more. I went back to a blower with this one and it's dropped down even better

Sure you do, but at the same time not really necessary for the build. Just needs good airflow and a good cooler. If budget permits though I always recommend water over air.

Yup, my best friend got that 2080ti FTW3 or whatever and he's like bruh these temps. I died laughing.
