ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX-GTX1080-A8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Overclocks to 2,114 out of the box, AWESOME.
Maxes out at 62c while gaming.
Mostly quiet.

Cons: In pros, I mentioned it is mostly quiet.. Not fully quiet.. Why? Because coil whine. Absolutely atrocious coil whine. VERY disappointing.
Another disappointment, is the fact that the lighting on this card is AWFULLY uneven. The bottom lights are a DARK green, the ROG on the side is a perfect match to the green I set in the Aura software, and then there's the eye on top that is in the back plate, it is a VERY light green... I have the Maximus VIII Formula motherboard too, same thing, UNEVEN lighting.. VERY disappointed with my last several purchases from ASUS.. Not sure if I'm going to keep this card because the coil whine is noticeable even with my headphones on..

Other Thoughts: Solid overclocker that runs moderately cool.. But beware of the coil whine, and don't expect even lighting.. Again, my ASUS motherboard has the same uneven lighting issues..

Pros: The setup process was actually VERY simple. I actually bought this for my wife, and I have a different brand name, similar style (Need for Seat) which has a better build quality, however the actual building process almost requires two people, and it costs more.

Cons: The actual back rest is very thin, but the padding is good. It just looks kind of odd, the included cushions make it very comfortable, without them, not so much. But again, nothing to worry about since you get a back and head cushion.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 120-G2-1300-XR 80+ GOLD 1300W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've owned this PSU for 1 year and 6 months and it is still holding up VERY well with SLI setups putting it to the test
Solid, clean power

Cons: The fan on this has gotten somewhat loud over time, to the point where I'm about to buy a different PSU just because I'm picky about noise output from my PC
