Ah the bane of my sanity. I sold a 85% ASIC GTX 970 WF that would overclock to 1565 on air so I could get this beast. The overclocking is much less impressive in terms of numbers, the ASIC is 64.2% so I got screwed in the chip lottery. It will run a slightly higher than factory overclock on memory and about 1406mhz on core stable. Overall the quality of the card is very high and I have no complaints regarding it achieving advertised values. Voltage is a bit high but stable and it even overclocked it draws less power than advertised under a full load in Furmark. The temperatures while overclocked are also average, about +45c in Furmark, with the fans running at about 85%. I have a custom fan profile set in order to keep the fans on at all times running at the lowest RPMs which is why my idle temperature is about the same as my CPU's. The fans can be heard when ramped up but it is a negligable sound even though my PC sits beside me on the desk, the sound doesn't bleed into a microphone sitting beside the case. My benchmark scores are about average with it and just slightly slower than the SLI setup my previous 970 went into. I use a 1080p monitor and this thing chews through games at that resolution, even GTA V only gets it to about 60c and that's after a few hours of playing.
Went with this card because everything I read pointed to this being the best of the 980Ti line. And I'm kind of an Asus Fanboy.
This card is an absolute monster. No matter what I'm playing I crank it all up to ultra and consistently land 120-300+ FPS. The only issue I had with this card is that it runs very hot, and the reason for that is that by default the fans do not turn on until 60C. Word is that's because Asus wanted the card to be silent and it can handle running a little hot, but if you're like me and that bothers you, set up a custom fan profile in GPU Tweak II. I've got the fans running at 30% through the lower ranges and then ramping up to 70% by 60C. I haven't hit 60C since (high 60's was almost immediate before making that change). Probably the greatest thing I have ever owned. Buy one. Now.
My first one was defect, RMA but the second one is perfect! Thx to NCIX great RMA service
Wonderful GPU. It is a beast when it comes to power, and it is insanely quiet! Beware, this thing is huge! 12 inches long if I'm not mistaken, it was a pain to install, even in my full tower case.
Very good graphics card has a lot of power , mine scored above 15000 on firemark .
Amazing video card. was great when I had the stock coolers on it, even better now that its been liquid cooled.
Uses a lot of power, very big(300mm)
Slightly dated now but can still do the job.
