    Join us as we review the all new ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ROG Strix 11GB. Not the engineering samples you have seen reviewed two weeks ago. This GeForce GTX 1080 Ti comes all customized with a brand ...

    Hi Hilbert,
    Does the card produce coil whine only when you overclock it,
    or also when you use the default frequencies ?
    And can you hear the coil whine with a closed case ?

    At defaults, it's a tiny bit. I doubt very much you will be able to hear it in a closed case as you need to be like 30cm away from the card to be able to hear it.

    Absolutely hate these "Modes" that lots of GPU's are doing right now

    So its basically the same as the MSI, noise level 1db difference, temperatures 2ºC difference and performance barely an fps or two here and there.

    Unless there is a noticiable price difference or stock problems, take the one you like most for its looks, MSI for me although ASUS backplate is badass.

    That was rather shady what ASUS tried to pull there.

    Exciting stuff, personally waiting for a manufacturer to bring out a water cooled version like the seahawk, that should bring even greater o.c. potential.

    First page. They sent reviewers a sample with higher clocks than advertised.

    Thanks! That's pretty awful indeed.

    Kudos to Guru3D for noticing it and switching to the retail BIOS, although I'd like to see that highlighted - that really puts me off from buying this version.

    For those who haven't read it, here's the relevant bit:

    Didn't MSI and all them do something similar with the 1080? Then you have like the performance bias setting on all the Ryzen motherboards..

    I feel like all those practices need to stop.

    Yea I wouldn't be surprised if the most of (or even all) the manufacturers do it routinely. We really need reviewers to call this things out and make it clear when it happens.

    I expected a bit more, but still beast of a card! Still happy with my 1080 SLI though. Nice review, Hilbert.Thanks.

    Beware of fans.

    ASUS has an agreement to make completely custom fans that do not have regular mounting patterns and use model numbers that are pre-existing with different patterns and voltage.

    It is literally impossible to get replacement fans after your warranty runs out. I have rigged an MSI fan on my ASUS STRIX. ASUS will not supply or sell you a replacement fan and the actual fan manufacturer doesn't sell ASUS's custom fans on the open market. Thus you will not be able to repair your VERY expensive video card correctly with a simple fan replacement without custom modifications.

    I am boycotting any product that they produce with their "custom" unreplaceable fans.

    Hi Hilbert. When can u make a review of the Gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti Extreme edition? I heard they launch on April 4 at USA. I bet it will hit shelves at Europe a week later on April 11 but reviewers get them earlier.

    Vrm

    Hey Hilbert

    I'm wondering if your findings on the VRM temps are universal to all Strix models, it just doesn't make sense. The 1080 Strix last year had the same cooler yet the VRM was comparable if not better to the competition.

    This is concerning, like the EVGA SC models last year. Kitguru found a 77.4 degrees hotspot not sure if it's the hottest spot or whatnot but it's not close to 90 degrees. http://www.kitguru.net/components/g...rog-strix-gtx-1080-ti-oc-o11g-11gb-review/16/

    Could it be that the Strix OC you got was a bad batch perhaps?

    I was in the same situation with an MSI card. They wouldn't ship me a fan or point me in the direction of where to purchase one. Then i found one on AliExpress the EXACT same model and branded MSI fans, 13$ incl shipping, took me 10 minutes to replace the fans. Do a search for Asus Strix and you will find your fans on AliExpress.

    MSI card seems to have better cooling in VRM area. It's a good 10 degrees lower than Asus according to Hilbert's FLIR images. Too bad I'm getting tired of MSI's red designs, I already have MSI 980Ti which looks almost identical, don't feel like buying another black and red GPU that doesn't match my case color theme.

    Mmm my strix is quite better than this one, I received mine yesterday. 2088mhz stable and 12.1ghz on memory, time spy score 10850 on graphics. Can't check VRM temps but even on auto fan profile it's not giving artifiacts so I doubt it's running as hot as this one Hilbert tested.

    Very possible, tweaking can card a bit per card. But it is also rather important where exactly you measure that Boost clock. E.g. a lighter game can very well go to 2.1 GHz on the card.

    Our Turbo clock is tested at 3DMark Firestrike scene 1 looped. Have a peek.
