MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X vs Asus GTX 1080 Strix OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello guys, as title says i m stuck between these 2 cards.

ROG Strix OC Gaming......1759/1898 & 1784/1936 clock speeds.....6-pin/8-pin power.....8+2 phases.....3 fans.....298mm x 134mm x 2 slots

MSI Gaming X....................1683/1822 & 1708/1847 clock speeds.....6-pin/8-pin power.....10 phases.......2 fans.....279mm x 140mm x 2 slots

In where i live ROG Strix OC Gaming Gaming one is around 70 dollars cheaper than MSI one also. Asus boost clocks are better but i see reviews that MSI has superb coolers and also much more silent that Asus. Any of you had any coil whine issues on one of these cards? And also i wanna know if my i5 4690 cpu is enough for that GPU? If u help me decide on these 2 cards plz, i be happy. Thanks.

I have had my MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X since July 5 now and it's great.
fans don't come on till 60c but the gpu never gets over 68c so the fans never go over 40%
my boost clock reported on GPU-Z and Afterburner is 1974mhz out of the box.
I can say anything about ASUS cards as I have never owned one but my ASUS motherboards over the years have been great.
your cpu should be fine with the 1080 but I recommend you get a 1070. biggrin.gif

I was in your situation but then decided to go for the evga ftw acx. Just slightly more noise than the msi (which was my first choice earlier) and pretty much everything else seems slightly better. Ofc it comes with legendary evga support. I haven't tried that but msi and asus support both are cowdung.
