from completed build Black & White: An awesome all-rounder
I have to say five stars because of the price..... I dunno. I absolutely LOVE the cutting edge nature of this GPU and the tech it demonstrates. I'll probably get shot down for this but I actually think it's cheap given the level of technology it exhibits. I see it not so much has a great GPU (which it is) but as a testament to what mankind can do when we really work at it.

If you’re looking to get a 2080Ti and you are an overclocker, this card is absolutely for you. Although the heat sink is absolutely massive, which makes this card a whopping 4.5 pounds, it is an ice cube. I have gotten this card to 2100MHz and it still doesn’t get above 68 C° under max load.
While I agree the price point is somewhat crazy, and there are much cheaper 2080 Tis out there, I would buy this card 1000 times over
Disclaimer: is GPU sag worries you, buy a support bracket.

This part likely gets more usage than anything else, and it's amazing.

This card is an absolute monster, it is incredibly overclock-friendly, excels at more than just gaming, and does everything at an extreme level, including its damn price.
I would recommend this to people who are doing graphic design, video editing, and enthusiast-level gaming at 4K 60+FPS or 1440p 120+FPS on Ultra, or all of the above. I would NOT recommend this to people who are strictly looking to game, I would push them towards an RTX 2070 & 2060 Super if they really want ray tracing, or a GTX 1660 Ti if they can live without it.
This GPU has obvious positives, but does not come without negatives. My unit likes to sag, so I had to get a support brace to compensate for this. The Precision X1 Software has a lot of details and temperature readouts with ICX2 which are very helpful and informative, but it loves to crash on me around 50% of the time, hopefully with new patches and updates it will become more reliable.
The biggest downsides to this card are due to NVIDIA and not EVGA, price and ray tracing. Yes, ray-tracing is incredibly beautiful and could very well be the next thing for games and graphics, but it is simply not readily available in most mainstream games. When it is available, it carries with it, a hefty performance drop in FPS, and while Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) was created to counter this performance drop, it is available in even less titles than ray-tracing is, and thus, it is still unproven.
