  1. Andrew

    Entry level Graphic Card for desktop Gamers. Installed and works well for Gaming

  2. Kenny

    The GPU however despite its age, still runs older games I play very smoothly at 1080p and 1440p. It may fall below 60 FPS for modern AAA titles though. Still great for a light gaming rig.I purchased this a very attractive price, and also because of the “3 years local warranty” mentioned. Turns out that the warranty is US based, and not applicable anywhere else. In addition, I believe I got a lemon set that artifects when I run GPU intensive tests, and my screen blacks out for a few seconds occasionally. So far it happened 3 times in my 2+ hours of usage. **Returning this**

    A Beast of a Card
    Background: I don’t often write reviews, but I thought I’d share my experience after seeing limited reviews on amazon for this graphics card. I originally purchased an EVGA GTX 1070 FTW model. But after having to replace it once, having to struggle with crashing/instability, and then seeing reports of VRM heating issues/design flaws, I thought it was time for a change. I’ll be comparing the ASUS GTX 1070 STRIX ROG OC Edition to my experience with the EVGA GTX 1070 FTW model. Both are arguably the flagship ‘premium’ 1070 cards on the market.Disclaimer: None. I bought this card with my own hard earned money :). Despite my somewhat negative experience with EVGA, I will give an honest comparison. I think both EVGA and ASUS are excellent companies, so I won’t be hating on either.Ok! So let’s get to the good stuff!Aesthetics: Obviously, this is based on personal taste, so you may disagree with me here. I really liked EVGA’s metal finish to their fan shroud as well as glossy finish to their logo. At first, I was disappointed to see a plastic shroud and finish on the ASUS STRIX ROG card. However, photos don’t do this card justice. The card looks amazing in person. The fan shroud has a nice gun metal/gray finish to it, which I personally like. The back plate has a nice finish to it, as well as a cool pattern and the ROG logo. The color of the card is neutral, so it can work with just about any build design/color. There are LED’s on the side, around the fans, and on the back plate with their logo. It’s all completely customizable. Nice.Size/Form Factor: Wow! This card is HUGE! You MUST measure out if this card will fit in your case, unless you have a full size PC case. I have the Master Case Pro 5, a mid size case with plenty of room, and I STILL had to remove the drive bay adjacent to the motherboard to accommodate the sheer size of this GPU. Please, please, please, do your homework on this part to make sure this GPU will safely fit in your case.Misc.: This card comes with two fan headers so you can hook up case fans to your GPU. This way, when your card is heating up it can directly control up to two fans in your case to help with cooling. This is a nice way to customize your case’s cooling setup so that not all the case fans are operating based on CPU temperature. It’s a nice feature. Who knows, maybe I’ll hook up an extra fan to it down the road. On another note, this GPU takes one 8 pin connector for power, has a 6 +1 power phase, and used premium components in their build. At first, I sort of rolled my eyes and figured this was all marketing jargon. But wow, it sure makes a difference. This card performs very well even when the voltage and max power limits are raised. None of that buzzing noise or coil whine. This card also comes with two HDMI ports instead of just one. I am not sure how many people this will apply to, but this is a single BIOS card, unlike the dual BIOS EVGA FTW card. So if you are a customer looking to apply custom BIOS, I’d recommend going for the double BIOS cards. Moving on…Performance: I got the OC edition, and this card is advertised to get an 1860 mhz boost clock. Similar to my previous EVGA FTW card, this ASUS card far surpassed it’s advertised performance, without ANY overclocking or changes to default settings. At default settings, I recorded 2012 mhz, with 8014 memory clock, all running at a cool 58 degrees Celsius. This is pretty similar to default performance on my EVGA card out of the box.Overclocking: Now the exciting part! I highly recommend OC’ing this card, as this edition is really designed to be overclocked and it’s free extra performance. If some of you are concerned, it comes with 3 years limited warranty. Even if you max the voltage/power settings (which I did), this is still within limits set by the manufacturer. So, after setting Max Voltage to 100%, Power Limit: 120%, Temp. Target: 92 degrees Celsius, I achieved a nice overclock of: 2152 mhz GPU (although it stabilized to 2139 mHz), and a memory overclock of 9208 mhz. I made my own custom aggressive fan curve, so this operated at a very nice 64 degrees Celsius. These settings were stable on Valley Benchmark for hours. I’m pretty impressed with this performance. I can’t really compare the OC to my old EVGA card, because much of the performance variance is due to luck and the silicon lottery. I can say that they perform within +/- 5% of one another… a negligible difference in my opinion.Acoustics: At idle, this card is completely silent. Its fans don’t even turn on until it warms up a bit. The fans on this card are incredibly powerful. If you so desire, you could easily keep this card in the 50’s degrees Celsius, even with a hefty overclock. With overclocking, you are obviously sacrificing noise for performance. However, my personal limits for noise was when the fans passed 75% speed. WOW are they loud! As mentioned above, with my overclock the card maintained about 64 degrees Celsius, and this was with the fans operating at about 60-65% fan speed. Obviously, noise is very subjective and you may have a case that reduces sound better than mine, or you just won’t be bothered by it as much as me. I was very happy with the noise level when the fans were

    Best 1070 I’ve tried so far!
    So this is the 4th GTX 1070 I’ve used. I’ve used two different EVGA 1070 FTW cards, and an EVGA 1070 SC card, and this is easily the better than both the EVGA cards, at least in my experience, and this is coming from someone who is an EVGA fanboy…The included software isn’t my favorite, I prefer the look and layout of MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X, but I will say that the Asus GPU Tweak tool is A LOT better than it used to be. I used a previous version of GPU Tweak with an Asus 980ti that I had, and the software was very buggy, lots of glitches, would randomly crash, wouldn’t remember profiles etc. I have to say I haven’t had a single problem with GPU Tweak with this Strix 1070. I made a custom profile for all my settings with my manual overclock, and it remembers it all the time, everytime the pc reboots it automatically launches the GPU tweak tool and auto-loads my custom profile, perfect!Lighting: The lighting adds a very cool effect to an already very good looking card, but there is some issue with color accuracy… Mostly white, you can pretty much forget trying to set the color to just plain white, when I try to set it to just white, it shows a purple color. I don’t mean like a ‘hint of purple’, I mean I turn on the white led setting and it is just totally purple. Personally, I usually leave it on a different color anyway, but it is disappointing that they couldn’t get a true white light. From what I understand of RGB Leds it’s a common issue, unless they have a seperate bulb/light devoted just to white, the RGB LED can’t really do a true white.Temps/Fans: First off, and most importantly, make sure your case has adequate airflow flowing to the card, don’t complain about high temps if you’re starving the card of fresh cool air. At the moment I’ve got the card installed in an Evolv ATX case, and with just the two stock 140mm fans in the front of the case, it’s getting plenty of air to breathe, even heavaly overclocked, the card only reaches 72C, max. And that is with the stock fan profile where the fans don’t spin up until about 60C… That’s very impressive! I normally don’t like the whole ‘silent at idle’ thing a lot of gpu’s do now, where the fans don’t spin until a certain temp. In the past with all my 900 series cards, and the EVGA 1070 cards i’ve used, I would always set up a custom fan profile, so the fans were always on, but would only really ramp up under heavy load, but with this card I really have no reason to do that. It’s a very well built cooling solution, no need for a custom fan profile. Under heavy load it does become audible, but I wouldn’t say it’s loud, just…noticeable. Also, absolutely no coil whine! (All 3 of my EVGA 1070’s had coil whine to some degree).One complaint about the fans, the middle fan will occasionally start spinning for no apparrent reason. It’s only the middle fan, and it does it seemingly at random when I’m not placing any kind of load on the GPU and the card is well under the 60C threshold where the fans should turn on, but that middle fan will just randomly turn on and off, when it happens it’s really audible. I’m working on trying to figure out what’s causing it…Overclocking: Again, better than all three EVGA 1070’s I tried. This may just be Silicon Lottery at work, but I was able to manually overclock the card, using GPU Tweak, I’ve got the GPU boost clock maxed out at 1926, +400 on the memory, I did have to do +10% GPU voltage to get it totally stable in all benchmarks, but this gives me a STABLE boost clock of 2050-2175 mhz. It will peak up above 2100 mhz sometimes, but won’t stay there, and like I said earlier, I’ve never seen it go above 72C.*I wanted to say something about the power connector… So I remember hearing someone in a vid on Youtube say that extra power connectors do not grantee higher overclocks, and I have to say that this has definitely been my observation so far, at least with the Pascal cards. This card overclocks higher than all the EVGA cards I had, and I had two seperate FTW cards, that have dual 8-pin connectors, and this card has a single 8-pin and is EASILY beating those cards as far as max overclocks, and has lower temps… so what exactly IS the point of the extra 8-pin connectors?So to sum up:Pros:Looks awesome (that’s subjective, but generally agreed)RGB lights are a nice touchGreat temps, even heavily overclocked!No coil whineGood overclockerCons:middle fan randomly turns on/off when the card is idle.The White led setting displays a purple light.I already want another one for SLI…I’ve seen A LOT of reviews complaining about how huge these cards are, and yes they are taller/longer than the reference/founders edition and a lot of other aftermarket cards, but I’ve put this card in almost a dozen different cases testing different configs/builds, and I’ve not run into any clearance issue. All the reviews of people complaining about the cards not fitting there case are people using old cases and/or TINY mini ITX cases that are clearly not meant to fit a big card like that. Seriously, if you’re dropping $300-700 ($300 for the 1060 Strix all the way up to $700 for the 1080 strix) then spend another $60 to but a case that was made in the last couple years that won’t have clearance issues with modern large GPU’s… Don’t complain that your 10 year old case won’t fit a card like this when graphics cards were not this big when that case was made.It seems like with each generation of cards there is one manufacturer that really stands out from the rest as far as overall quality. With the Maxwell cards I really think that EVGA stood out among the rest, but I think they came up short this generation with the Pascal cards. I really do think that Asus did something really great with these Strix Pascal cards. I actually had an Asus 980ti Matrix Platinum for a couple months, that thing was a work of art! It was like I had a Lamborghini in my PC! But it was so huge/heavy that it had terrible GPU sag, after only a few days it was sagging so bad I was legit worried about damage to the PCI-E slot.

    Good cards, good performance
    Firstly, because Amazon groups like items which is a total failure to separate gleaning issues of one item to another, I will state that this is for the ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition Graphic Card.I usually build my gaming rigs with semi-stupid in mind; great hardware, but not paying the dumb highline prices of the top dawg on the market. usually 1 or two down, depending on what it is. My rigs was a bit old at:Coolermaster HAF towerintel I7 3930k 6 core cpu3 x Nvidia GTX680OC – MSI32gb g-skill ripjaws DDR3-192002 x Samsung Evo 840 SSd’smultiple storage disks blah blah blahThe issue was that I was really pushing these cards I had in and the timing was not working well against the timing of new I7 chips and boards for me to justify the whole upgrade. I decided to drop the third card since these new cards had the Display port, hdmi and dvi i needed to run my 5 screens. This dropping of the third card also took care of some heat; the cards were stressing to play some of the newer games and thus pulling some juice to keep up.Popped these cards in and WOW. I always love that pretty feeling when you start stressing the cards to the edge and you just see some pretty numbers. My cpu and all other components stayed the same and I am now able to play everything like before but no 4000db fan noise, less heat, better graphics quality and better interfacing to my screens with the display ports.NOTE: These cards are huge and the twin frozr MSI cards i took out were not small. If these guys keep up with near stupid video card sizing scheme, we will have to get an accessory slave board and house them separately. I had to take off the fan shroud on the inside of the side panel to make it fit and they barely fit on the end next to all the on board connections for the sata ports and hard drive cage.when I upgrade my board and cpu, memory and such next year, I will have to get measurements on the board to make sure everything fits and if not, buy a new case as well.EnjoyUpdate 12/16/2016: Two days into a bricked card; one of the two cards I ordered just freaked out while opening a web page and blocked the card with the dreaded code 43. After trying every solution known to man I emailed Asus with no reply as of yet. Artifacts in small squares hit the screens that were attached to that card and now it says the card “has a problem”. We will see how Asus deals with this issue. I do not run two cards for sli purposes, I run two cards because I have that many screens. I have lowered my rating to reflect a product that failed in a very short time. I bought the cards on September 12th, 2016 and installed them when I got home 4 days later.I would also like to add that I was getting artifacts in a couple of games, but on both cards. In Ark, sometimes corpses would stretch to high heaven and you could not tell where the body was actually lying and trees would not render right as well as plants. THAT could be Ark, which is beta but I talk to others that do not see this. Could be Nvidia as a whole.Two cards bought at the same time had complete hardware revision differences. One card was a hardware rev.A1 and the other was a rev.FF. NORMALLY, revisions go in order from A-Z showing changes to the hardware and usually more so firmware. If so, these are two completely different cards.Edit 04/24/2017:I have received a new card from ASUS warranty. NOT ASUS’s fault on the timing but mine. I travel a lot and sometimes it gets rough getting everything done by priority. I sent it to them, they had it turned around in maybe a week. That was a week while they troubleshoot the thing AND were waiting for replacement parts. They ended up sending a brand new card which is working fine at the moment and the new one came with a slightly newer firmware than the existing good one with Rev A1 as well. I am starting to wonder if GPU-Z was unable to pull the actual revision number of the failed card at all and THAT was why it reported FF. ASUS did give the reasons for failure on the sheets with the card and that is important to me. Not that the part failed, ANYTHING can have failure as nothing is perfect. I want to know that there is not a serial problem with something I bought and one quick way to find out is a manufacturer NOT telling you why it broke. My issues was a failed hardware memory issue.Cudos for the quick replacement ASUS, well done.

    updated -provides stable video/audio HDMI signal form w-7 to 4k TV –but
    update – recently discovered/learned – ‘ by design ‘ this NVIDIA card only provides 2-channel audio to TV’s via HDMI – even when TV is connected to surround sound audio system– workaround – connected NVIDIA to surround A/V receiver via HDMI to experience 5.1 audio from the PC – good luckhad to replace the 10 yr old Radeon video card with this Nvidia card ..Pleased !… my 11yr ld PC can now display on 1080p & HD audio to 2022 Sony 65″ Bravia 4kJust for streaming, Not a gamer,Happy camper.

    Gave my 2016 Dell 8900 the ability to play some current city builder games
    Well, I just fell in love with a certain new city builder game, and out of curiosity I ran the famous Speccy utility after hearing a lot of fan noise coming out of my computer while I played the game. It turned out that the graphics card that came with my Dell 8900 back in 2016 was running at almost 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and in the red zone. Not good.So, I did a lot of research and found this card that totally solved the problem easier than I could imagine. My Dell came with a GeForce GTX 745, and this card was able to run off the computer’s power supply just like the OEM card, and it was able to read my display configuration and configure itself immediately. All I had to do was sit and wait for the card to figure everything out, which took a minute or two and caused a couple of monitor flickers.Now, I’m playing the game that originally caused the problem, and the temperature sits at about 120 degrees, and if I go out of my way to use the graphic functions a lot (which I typically don’t) then the card temperature peaks in the low 140’s, and still within the safety zone.This is likely a “low end” card by today’s gaming standards, but I gave my six year old computer a new lease on life for the games I like to play.
