Hi I have a Gigabyte Radeon R9 280x 3GB atm and I want to upgrade to a 1080 Ti because I am thinking about going towards 4K soon.

Question: I want to know what 1080 Ti is the best?
(best cooling/lowest tempatures (air cooling) and as quiet as posible).

I have been thinking about a MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Ti Armor OC. Just because my motherboard is black and white so I have been thinking about getting a black and white case with a window. (I like the black and white style). But I have seen at reviews that it sounds much in high load and it is going over 75°C.


P.S. It needs to exist in Sweden, the current specs is written in my signature and my budget is 8000 SEK including shipping:

(Google says that 8000 SEK is 948,808 USD atm so say 949 USD).


Edit:
I am currently using a Samsung S24D590L screen (24'' 1080p) but I might buy a 4K monitor kinda soon.
Remember 8000 SEK is my budget that should include shipping.
I am not sure if I am going to buy a 1080 Ti now but most likely within approx 3 month. Could be cool if the grafics card is black and white.
I am using my pc for gaming and such.

I'd wait a till the end of this month to see how the RX Vega performs in gaming. It might be a good solution for you. IMO, the GTX 1080Ti is too expensive for the performance and I'd go with the 1080 instead.

However, if you really want the 1080TI with the best cooler, get one of the 1080ti with the hybrid cooler (Watercooling + aircooling). They are however, more expensive. If not then, any cooler that isn't using a blower fan is great.

Vega is expected to be around 1080 performance for price about like the 1070 and it will support freesync making a 1440p 144hz Freesync IPS panel + Vega pretty good & a good experience. 4k gaming is meh there is barely any difference from 1440p to 4k what matters more is color quality and refresh rates.


Until 4k 144hz HDR panels cost less than an arm & a leg I have to recommend the Pixio PX277 or the Nixeus Edg27

Chiming in late but all the 1080tis that aren't the reference design perform about the same. Some a tiny bit better than others but all relatively the same.
