ASUS FanConnect

Targeted Supplemental Cooling

When gaming, GPU temperatures are often higher than CPU temps. However, chassis fans usually reference CPU temperatures only, which results in inefficient cooling of the system. For optimal thermal performance, ROG Strix graphics cards feature two 4-pin GPU-controlled headers that can be connected to system fans for targeted cooling.

Died too quickly - disappointed

Pros: Supposed 3 year warranty

Cons: HOT
Underperforming
Bad quality control

Overall Review: I have seen many conflicting reviews about this card, on both sides of the spectrum. Some receive a great card and have the ability to OC by a decent amount, while on the other hand, I have experienced extreme amounts of grief due to this purchase. Initially, I had bought this card in April of 2018, having saved enough money to finally get a good enough card to push 1440p games on my monitor. While I was initially happy, I noticed that in certain games, such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, the card struggled to get above 60 fps on med/low settings @1440p. Furthermore, in the past half year or so, I have noticed that the card has been running abnormally hot under load, when compared to when it initially came.
The last straw was a few days ago. I fell asleep watching a movie and upon waking up, I could feel my room's ambient temperature had gone up, and when I approached my PC, it felt like an oven. My monitors were not displaying anything, and all my fans were turboed up, and I assumed that Windows had blue screened when I was asleep. Upon trying to restart my computer after letting it cool off a bit, I noticed that none of my displays had any input from my GPU, despite the card's LED's and fans turning on with my computer. Upon closer inspection, my card had some sort of "oily" fluid on it, which I checked my AIO CPU cooler immediately for leaks. After doing some research, I discovered that the issue was that my GPU's thermal pads had melted and the consequent liquid substance was what was oozing out of my GPU. Furthermore, I had also read from other owners of the same card had similar thermal issues, and I noticed a person claim that the stock ASUS thermal padding and paste was sub-par and the company used cheaper materials to cut down on production cost. While I do take that with a grain of salt, I am still very disappointed to hear that a component that I had purchased for $600 barely lasted me over a year.
As a college student, my primary usage for my PC is for doing my work, gaming, and watching movies, with gaming being the most (and probably only) graphically intense load my GPU experiences. Furthermore, it is important that I mention I DO NOT overclock, as when I had purchased this GPU, I had hoped that it would last me at least until I had graduated, and I know overclocking just kills the lifespan of the card.
Overall, I am extremely disappointed by this product and its thermal performance, as I had always held high regards for the Asus Strix lineup of GPU's and their 'superior' performance to other competitors, but as it stands for me currently, that is not the case.

Pros: Fantastic card especially for the price

Cons: Not watercooling friendly. Only one company makes waterblock for this card, and it near doubled the cost of me making a custom loop.

Pros: 1080

Cons: the worst thing is the third fan on my card is a DOA, songs like there is a bearing problem on it, once it starts working a noise will show up which is loud and annoying... this is not the end though, newegg does not all refund but only replace, and you need ship the defeated one back first after they receive they will issue you a new one, YES!!! this is talking about a almost 2-3 weeks journey of the process and my computer just be a box during that time, I am so frustrated!!!

One of the best, Dead like the rest.

Pros: Everything you could hope and dream for!
4k no problems

Issues after six months of use

Pros: RGB is neat and a good way to monitor your temps, No issues in first six months of use.

Cons: It seems that the fan furthest from the backplate has a bad bearing as now the device makes a loud clicking noise when above 20 % usage. Additionally, since the bearing issue the fans are erattic and run at high levels at random times.
