what's the tl;dr version?

Yes! Myself who does not understand a damn thing of English, would be very well served with a TL;DR.CA_Steve wrote:what's the tl;dr version?
In case someone is interested on the news,During serious gaming, the card stays extremely quiet; it is actually the quietest GTX 980 Ti we have ever tested, while being the fastest with the highest clocks!
Wow, that would basically mean that it would not be just quiet, but SILENT for about 80% of the time.remains passive up-to roughly 65 Degrees C
KitGuru MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z 11GB ReviewIn gaming, the card is as quiet as the quietest custom GTX 1080 Tis we tested. Given the massive cooler and the low temperatures of only 66°C, I feel that MSI could have quietened the card down some more for slightly higher temperatures. But given the overclocking focus of this SKU, I can understand that temperatures were higher priority than noise.
It’s not the quietest graphics card on test but it is among the quietest GTX 1080 Tis available. The MSI Lightning Z is only marginally louder than the Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti, to the tune of 1 dBA, and is roughly as noisy as the Palit Super JetStream and MSI Gaming X GTX 1080 Tis.
These sites did not get similiar values. Can we conclude there was any process failure on the Guru3D reviews (note that idle noise starts in advanage in comparison to the other cards, making a uneven floor noise baseline)?Tzupy wrote:If not cherry-picked, then it's impressive; some coil whine though...

Sadly thats the truth, there are no clear winners on the 1080ti, not a single card maker leads according to all reviews... in some wins one while in the others another. Even TechPowerUp that i trust more, didnt have a clear winner.whining_coil wrote:I'm looking to get a 1080Ti, and the amount of conflicting information is making this rather difficult.
The strix is a good option, probably among the best, but not that its superb like in past gens some card was in noise side. That said Asus did come a long way from the GTX970 where when pushed hard they became jet engines (i lost faith on quiet SLI here on air), the GTX1080ti strix never ever has reached jet engine like, even pushed hard, but it does requiere a lot of air to be sustained quietly, with my FT05 AP182 at 600rpm (kinda inaudible) i can play low end games like Blizzard, but if i go into PUGB and Fortnite, i need to bump the case fans around 900rpms where the AP182 are very audible, but allows the Strix to not hit 85C and downclock itself. Now one thing that you have to remember is that im pushing it on 4k, and believe me the load that it takes to push that res is a lot, i tried this setup on a 1080p and didnt hit even 80c on 500rpms on the case fans, so if you are not going for 4k or close, you will have lower temps than me and very likely less noise. Asus has a good thing though, if you decide to go with it, and on your setup with your games and quality the card runs very cool, let say 70C on load, you can download the Asus Silent vBios which lowers the fans profile to have a much quieter setup at the expense of heat, this is something that i can't do, simply on 4k the card needs the cooling.whining_coil wrote:Abula: Do you like your Asus STRIX? Would you choose something else given the more choices and information available today?
