Features Part Two
It isn't only in the worlds of fan noise that graphics cards can become annoying. It is probably fair to say that all of us at one time or another have owned a high power GPU that squealed when it was put under loading. You end up with an expensive GPU that you're afraid to use because you're so tired of listening to it buzzing and squealing away in the case. By utilising nothing but the very highest quality components the ASUS GTX 1080 Ti Strix OC promises to eradicate this nuisance from your life. If you've got a gaming PC in the lounge then your family will love you for it, rather than send you death glares every time you play something more demanding than Spelunky. As part of the ASUS family it comes as no surprise that the Strix utilises the AURA lighting to bring your own colour choice to your system. What is a surprise is that the Strix is equipped with an RGB header to truly bring AURA Sync to everyone regardless of motherboard. You aren't limited to controlling lighting with the Strix though, as it also has two case fan headers which can be tied to the GPU temperature and help adjust airflow as necessary. Yet another effort to ensure that your quality of life is dramatically improved with the Strix.
Enough about the features, let's get a quick look at it up close.
