RageQuitters Reviews – ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080

Introduction

 

In May, NVIDIA introduced the world to the GeForce GTX 1080 – the fastest single GPU on the planet.

After the initial ‘wow’ factor, people soon came to realise that the vanilla ‘founders’ editions cards were very good but you were paying over the odds with an ‘early adopters’ tax for a product without any bells and whistles.

      I wouldn’t call the HAF-X ‘ancient’ – it is a high-end gaming case from 2011 with excellent airflow and should have plenty of space for most GPUs.

      Unfortunately our budget isn’t endless and we couldn’t just rebuild our test system for the purposes of the review.

      This section in the article was included more of a highlight to check your case as the card’s width extends beyond a ‘standard’ PCI-E card’s regular dimensions; especially with certain motherboards.
