The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.


GPU Controlled Fan Headers

When you are gaming it is commonly found GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The ROG STRIX 1080 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans fort argeted cooling on your GTX 1080.

Featuring Aura RGB Lighting on both the shroud and backplate, ROG Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors and six different effects for a personalized gaming system (as seen above).

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 DirectCU III Strix 8GB GDDR5X Aura RGB Graphics Card, 2560 Core, 1670 MHz, 1809 MHz Boost is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great card. I bought this card a month or so ago when the price was £575. Paired with a Asus ROG 165Hz 1440p monitor is amazing, going back to 60fps is no longer possible if you can believe its like a slide show in comparison. The LED configuration is not what I'm use to with previous Gigabyte GPU's and my plethora of Corsair RGB peripherals the Strix LED software is missing some basic lighting modes. this has to be the biggest downfall of the device. Overclocking is a doddle with the Asus tuning software, was very easy to get my clock speed up to 2100MHz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the performance of the card Very happy with the performance of the card. haven't found a game yet that it cant run on ultra 60fps @ 1080p. runs almost every thing at 60fps on high at 1440p. at 4K will sit nicely at 60fps on medium settings.
Date published: 2017-10-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Card It's bigger than it seems so make sure you have a large case. Voted 3/5 on Value as the price dropped very shortly after my purchase. As always with purchases from scan, delivery was prompt and the item was very well protected and packaged. Runs every game I own on max settings 1440p. Great card
Date published: 2017-03-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guaranteed good VR experience This card was bought to go on a Windows 7 machine with an HTC Vive VR headset. Graphics driver installation was easy. The 2560 GPU cores smoothly render the graphics without tears and stutters providing an excellent VR experience.
Date published: 2016-11-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, Quiet Custom 1080 Bought this over other variants due to the Strix cooling. It's awesome. Unless you're pushing the card pretty hard it stays cool enough to have either slow fans, or no spinning fans at all. The on-board fan headers are also a welcome addition. Only downside: I dislike LEDs on my equipment. I think it's overstated. Not a problem to turn them off, but they periodically reactivate themselves.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blow your mind A+ Done tons of tests of the FPS and the temp runs for this card getting over 140 fps temp is around 60 to 80 fan turns on when it hits the temp it's a lovey card the down side was the cost but that's what you get for high end specs
Date published: 2016-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus GeForce GTX 1080 ROG Can i just thank Scan computers for the high quality of service with my order. The two GTX 1080 STRIX cards came the next day and were packaged very well. I highly recommend Scan computers to anyone.

Questions & Answers

Whats the difference?

Hi there, Just curious whats the difference other than the core/boost clocks between these two and why is the higher clocked one cheaper than the more expensive one? Asus GeForce GTX 1080 ROG STRIX GAMING 8GB GDDR5X VR Ready Graphics Card, 2560 Core, 1607MHz GPU, 1733MHz Boost, RGB LED
Asked by: Regs
It's simply a higher clock rate and therefore technically faster. For all intents and purposes this will translate into maybe 1 or 2 frames more. If you had the money, go fast, if not then it doesn't really matter.
