Loving this thing.. Still working on the OC for it.
The Asus Tweak software seems pretty easy to use and has some "profiles" that will OC for you or you can go into an advanced mode and change settings to your needs.
The AURA software to change the colors works well (much better than the Kraken/CAM software)
Right out of the box with all default settings for my rig I got the follow scores from 3dmark
Cloudgate - 33,207
Skydiver - 35,141
Firestrike - 15,379
Timespy - 5,729
The card is an absolute "beast" when it comes to performance and looks. It has easily taken care of any games I've thrown at it, with the most intensive being The Witcher 3 at Ultra settings. Easily averaged around 80 FPS (though with Hairworks off) even with the HD Reworked Mod thrown in there. Can constantly keep 60 FPS (which I'm limited to with my 60 Hz monitor). I haven't tried overclocking it yet though.
The cooler on this thing is massive and dissipates heat very well. The three fans are quiet and only runs during intense gaming sessions. Even with all three running, they are barely audible. The RGB lighting and backplate with a carved ROG logo on it as an added bonus makes the card a great value. It's $599 here in Canada but I can easily see this card lasting me a very long time.
Do note of the size of the card itself. I was surprised at how long it was. It wouldn't fit in a Mini ITX Corsair 250D case. I have seen a build that managed to do it but it didn't work for me (hence, why I ended up with this current build).
It's big, powerful, quiet, cool and energy efficient. I can run Rise of the Tomb Raider in UHD (3840x2160) high settings without any lag. It's pretty expensive but gets the job done fast and well!
Holy balls is this thing great, plays Overwatch at 4K 60FPS maxed out, and Rise of the Tomb Raider maxed out at 1080p with 90-130 FPS. Silent at idle and decently quiet while playing games, but it sounds like a jet engine at anything above 80% fan speed. It was a good 80 bucks cheaper than the OC version of the same card, and the lighting is great. I've seen the clock speed go up to 1931Mhz in OC mode, much higher than advertised
An absolute beast. Easily over clocked, well made, lower power consumption. No complaints.
Excellent video card if you can fit it in your case. It stays incredibly cool and I was able to add a 250MHz stable overclock without adding voltage with Asus's GPU tweak, but I still haven't found any game where overclocking is necessary, as they all run smoothly on it's standard mode with max graphics settings. The triple fans keep it incredibly cool, in fact it averages around 40-45 C in games with a fan speed that can't be heard. If I am being super "nitpicky", the ONLY issue I can find with the card is the lack of range with the LED lights. The software makes it seem like you can have any color in the color spectrum in any shade, but really there is only a limited amount of colors which it can show. However there are still a good amount of colors(25 or so) and you can only tell that the LED isn't exactly what you set the LED software if you pay very close attention.
The lights look really good and it stays cool. It is very quiet too.
Stays Super quiet and cool with the three fans and software. Asus aura lighting software is fantastic.
Slightly overkill considering I have a 1080p monitor. Big, powerful, pretty, and the one that was on sale at time of purchase.
60fps in Doom with all settings on max. So pretty !
Love it. Handles everything I throw at it. A little bulky but who cares.
