EVGA presents a trio of custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, all featuring the company's iCX cooling technology to provide users with granular temperature monitoring and control.

EVGA GeForce GTX According to the company, iCX involves the embedding of 9 thermal sensors into the card circuit board. The sensors pick up extra heat and direct the asynchronous fans to cool the card down accordingly. Users also get "interactive cooling" through a "thermal LED display system," allowing them to check the sensors in real time.

The SC Black Edition is the entry level option. It features a simplified dual-fan version of the iCX cooler without the thermal sensors, and offers overclocked core speeds of 1556MHz base and 1670MHz boost. Following it is the SC2, a card featuring the same dual-fan setup and overclocked speeds together with iCX sensors.
