Very nice looking and well performing card. The liquid cooling keeps it very cool during loads. I usually don't even hit 60C while gaming. I was able to overclock and hit 2100mhz on the core and 8400mhz on the memory. The fans are pretty quiet. My only complaint and reason for knocking off one star is that the pump is pretty loud. There is no way to control the pump speed and therefore it runs at full speed all the time. Pump noise doesn't bother me as much as loud or noisy fans. But that is different for everyone. I know there is a way to hook the pump up to a motherboard header and run it at a slightly lower speed but its not that big of a deal and I don't feel comfortable taking the card apart.

from completed build I am Gamedalf the White. And I come back to you now - at the turn of the tide.
The single most important part in a gaming build is the graphics card. Most modern games are designed to run primarily on the GPU, so the stronger the graphics card, the better. With this in mind I looked at all of my options and decided that an nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super would give me an incredible gaming experience with all of the current AAA games. Looking at different cards I focused on several factors: speed; size; reliability; heat generation.
My desire to have an aesthetically pleasing build set me on the track of building a custom loop water cooling solution. Unfortunately, the more I looked into a custom loop, the more I realized I am just not ready to take on the upkeep of it, so I looked at other alternatives.
Wanting a smaller build, I was already concerned with heat inside the case, so the idea of a hybrid graphics card with an AIO built into it peaked my interest. Unfortunately, there is a small market for this, so my options were limited to MSI or EVGA. Comparing price, brand reputation, and reviews I decided on the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Super XC Gaming Hybrid card and I am glad I did.
The card easily pumps out the ultra high resolution graphics on my 2k 144hz monitor without breaking a sweat. In fact, while playing SW Jedi: Fallen Order, I never saw the GPU temp above 54°C and the ambient temp inside my case stayed at a cool 31°C.
The only reason I knock this card down a star is due to the noisy AIO fan and coil whine.

Good performance, but at a premium.
My issue comes mostly from EVGA cheaping out on the pump at this price point, creating a very noisy card. Even when idle the GPU is the only sound I hear coming from my system.
It is very disappointing as the reason for paying such a premium is precisely the cooling solution, which is sub-par. I would recommend anybody interested in a watercooled GPU to simply buy a "standard" RTX 2080 Super and use an aftermarket AIO coupled with a GPU watercooling bracket. It will still cost less than this card for equivalent performance and much reduced noise.
