That's why I stay away from ASUS gfx cards.

Wasn't the STRIX 980Ti also plagued with high temperatures? And I think that one too was made with the new 'No Humans, All Robotics" Auto Extreme manufacturing process just like this one?

Maybe the robots aren't so great. Or maybe Asus is just riding their name and not trying anymore.

Unless others like the FTW or Classy clock higher there's no point avoiding the Strix. I'll be interested to see if any of the features like more phases make a difference or not.

The problem is in the cooler design. They insist on direct contact cooling, but as you can see only 2 heat pipes make full contact with the GPU making the rest pretty much useless.

Big issue with the cooler isn't the # of heatpipes that make contact with the die but the machining... They're pretty sad...even their old 6** Series coolers were better with the aluminum between the copper pipes... They're not machined with a perfectly flat surface with no gaps like the CM Hyper 212 Evo is... Big difference and with a die that small, no wonder why temps aren't that great...

Just take a look at my 970 cooler... Granted I made up the difference with CLU on the die... but still

This is what it should be:

your wording is interesting. "plagued"? quick browse through 980Ti STRIX reviews reveal it has average temps among custom cards, nothing special but nothing bad either. so where exactly is it plagued with high temps?

how is it a problem? 980Ti STRIX has pretty good cooling, there were some 3 slot 980Tis that have better cooling, but I don't see anything wrong with STRIX temps with either 980Ti or 1080. it's neither bad nor amazing. it's around in the middle. not sure where this STRIX hate came from. rolleyes.gif

Yeah because reviews cover long time usage and real world scenarios right? Most people don't use open benches like all reviewers do.

Search for ASus 980 high temperature and you'll see what I mean.

Most reviewers didn't note the 1080 FE having bad throttlign either but the users are reporting it as well as some better reviewers who do more long term reviews (Jayztwocents covered this)

Why so defensive anyway? You on asus payroll?

This is nothing new, all the chips are about the same you either buy one that runs stock or one that is overclocked for you. These more expensive higher clocked cards are simply OCed and kind of guaranteed to run at those higher speeds where as if you buy a lower stock clocks one it is not guaranteed it will run these higher ones but it often does.
This goes for any GPU and brand, of course when a chip that can do 2.2GHz max in ideal conditions and runs often stable 2.0-2.1 isn't magically OC another 300MHz when it is already OCed by that from factory lol

The coolers are fine, check temps, that's all that matters for cooler performance. Direct contact pipes work just as well as a copper base to which those pipes are attached.

Still waiting on a benchmark comparison between all AiBs... but not expecting much. What's the point of more power phases if clocks remain the same? Does it increase OC stability?

i'm genuinely interested. i have friends with 970 strix and 980ti strix and they never had any cooling problems, also no reviews mention of any cooling problems. as it stands now you are just a random forum guy rambling against strix for now reason. am i on asus payrall? lol. grow up and learn how to have proper discussions.
