    This GPU is HEAVY. It's definitely leaning a bit in my system. I definitely wish Asus took some steps to counteract this like they did with their 980 ti design.

    I've been able to get very good OC's with this card and managed to keep it around 80 degrees. Considering it is a power hungry and always hot AMD I've been really impressed with the Strix cooling.

    I've used the 970 quite a bit and after two weeks with the 390 I now can say for certain that the 390 is the better card hands down. I'm getting St least 5 fps more on every game I've played.

    I did dock a star purely because the card really is crooked and heavy. I'm definitely a bit concerned.

    I ended up bending up a extra metal piece from my case I had laying around and screwing it into my psu shroud to prop up my gpu. It's black so it can't be seen and has done the job very well. It was leaning more than ever so a step had to be taken.

    Powerful card, not a great overclocker. Runs hot (got up to 91 on factory oc settings) and fans starts getting loud at around 55% fan speed. After experiencing it's performance, I can't really recommend this particular aftermarket card and would advice others to just go for the other ones.

    The STRIX logo led does a breathing effect and I don't think you can make it static :(

    I wish there was a 6 star option, this gpu is amazing! I love the led pulses, adds some spice to my boring build. Drivers were sooooo easy to install. Getting high 70fps on 1440p for gtav! People say this card gets near 90c underload. You must be using the computer 24/7 playing 4k games to get somewhere CLOSE to 90c. the highest I get this card from 2-4 hr cod sessions was 69c. Great work asus!

    Powerful beast of a card - Looks awesome but the damn LED PULSES and you CAN NOT turn it off! If it distracts m too much i'll have to tape over it - but who pays this much to then tape over the feature?! Also, it ran hot - 95C in my case before I put in my exhaust fan and the adhesive melted off the plastic stripes that are on the heatsink. I expected better from an Asus Strix product.

    EDIT** - The annoying pulsing STRIX stip + the fact that it runs 7C hotter than the Sapphire 390 OC backplate edition meant i've returned it and got the Sapphire 390 OC.

    This was By Far the Best buy in My whole system this is a great Card Fast Silent and Plenty of VRAM for mods and Eventually 4k ( If I Get a 4k Monitor Idk) I picked it up extremely cheap on one of Mwaves Group deals. I am Very Happy with this Purchase

    Great cooling with 3 fans. Overclocking is ok, but crashes in some games.

    Mixed feelings. All the games work at max settings in 1440p. But runs games at 70C+ and fans are very loud after 50%.

    Very nice card. Lots of diaplay ports. Should last me for a while. Love that the fans dont move when under light/no load, helps keep things quiet.

    I guess I got this one on a really good sale because I only paid roughly $250 for it, while now it is going for about $700 new. This card is great, It has been able to chew through any game I've thrown at it on Ultra, from Battlefield 1 to GTA5, though it does get quite hot if you don't manually adjust the GPU fan speed through the software they provide, on auto, it goes to about 80-90C while under heavy load.
