Go STRIX... I have 4 of them 2 pairs in different machines and got 1 pair into the hall of fame... and the other pair damn close... ( with a few more tweaks it will be there) By the way these runs are on the stock BIOS... cant even image what these beasts would do if the voltages were fully unlocked via a different BIOS...so I officially have the fastest pair of 980ti's on system version 4.41... and what appears to be the fastest 2 card SLI, 4 core all AIR cooled rig on futuremark ... my cards temps are amazing as well... when on max fan speed I get them to 25 and 24 degrees Celsius when IDLE and about 60 degrees under load ( my ambient temps are about 60-65 degrees fahrenheit)... again this is ON AIR! bottom line is the STRIX is a performer, voltage issues aside... here is the link of the hall of fame run...

Hall of fame run...
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6485724
ASIC's of 69% and 71.6%

My other pair that are just a few clicks behind...
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6486286
ASIC's of 60% and 64.1%

Despite what others may say, the strix is the one to beat...

When overclocking these cards...

Make sure you max out your minimum voltage and maximum voltage sliders on GPU tweak, use the latest drivers( Use DDU First), and use the latest version of GPU tweak... with these three things you should be able to post some nice figures... I believe it all comes down to its manufacturing process... The human free, flux free, ect,. ect. process tells me that the delivery of all of the different components processes is so efficient it overcomes the needs for higher clocks and voltages to get the same performance as other ABP's... sort of like a Hellcat Dodge Challenger vs. a Z06 Corvette... One is great in a straight line, but awful in the corners, the other does both... one has more HP but just can deliver due to the way its set up... the other slightly less HP but is so well balanced and engineered it can do more... with less.

Not one has coil whine, but they all sag... use some nice wooden dowels cut to length and colored black to deal with that, or any other brace...

Here are pics of the hall of fame rig...





The combination of my braces and my hard bridge eliminate sag...

Hope this helps anyone making a decision...

Here are the 4 cards together looking sexy...

looking for a quiet gtx90ti, how do they sound with normal fan profile?
post #74 of 74
they are silent with the normal profiles... the fans don't even run when dinking around on your desktop, web browsing, watching Netflix/any streaming media, I use blue stacks to port android on my desktop and any apps I run thru it don't kick the fans on... I also play some legacy titles via full screen and the fans wont kick on. Only when doing heavy duty graphics work do the fans come on and when they do I don't hear them unless they go above 55% while in my case... I will put it this way, I have not done anything (other than OC'g them) that gets them to an audible level... Very quite cards...
