    User Reviews.


    8 Pack reviews ASUS Fury Strix on air cooling and beyond.

    I have always had great sucess when air testing and LN2 testing pretty much all ASUS cards over recent years. Great build quality and software support features making them
    so easy to overclock and make big scores with.

    On initial inspection the card is huge. Not because of the PCB but because of the massive DC3 cooler used on all ASUS full length Strix GPU. The cooler is the trade mark ASUS
    black and red color scheme, supports three fans and some very substancial heat pipes. These heat pipes are in direct contact with the GPU and thus the aim is to make the
    transfer of heat into them more efficient. The cooler is two slot so cards can be placed side by side without issue in upto 4 way Cross Fire X configuration. The backplate is not
    only substancial in thickness and clean in looks it also supports an extra shim around the core area. This shim painted red is designed to further protect the BGA from cracking
    if flexed and prolongue the longevity of the card. Lets take a look at this slick looking card mounted in my review system.

    This ASUS Strix Fury DC3 was my first AMD Fury to try so I was keen to see how the card performed and overclocked.

    Test system:
    5960X 4875ghz
    ASUS Rampage 5 extreme X99 MB
    Kingston Predator DDR4
    Kingston SSD
    8Pack Superflower 2000w PSU

    Microsoft WIndows 8.1
    AMD Cataylst 15.7 WHQL Drivers.

    Here are the results:
    3D Mark Firestrike
    [​IMG]
    3D Mark Firestrike Xtreme
    [​IMG]
    3D Mark Firstrike Ultra 4K
    [​IMG]
    Heaven 4.0 maxed out 1080p
    [​IMG]
    Valley Xtreme HD setting 1080p
    [​IMG]
    Heaven 4.0 Maxed out 4K
    [​IMG]
    Valley Xtreme HD 4K
    [​IMG]

    So as we can see using stock fan profile and stock volts my sample was rock stable at an overclock of 1100mhz on the GPU and 575mhz on the HBM memory. This yielded an
    aproximate gain of 10% in terms of bench mark scores over the stock Fury GPU. Fury is not known for its crazy overclocking prowess but 10% free performance is not to be
    sniffed at!!

    The cooler for this card was very, very good indeed. AMD cards have a reputation for high heat output but the new DC3 designed cooler dealt with the overclocked card very
    easily. At idle the temp of the card with the fans not spinning in 0db mode was around 48-49C. Even more impressive was that even with the card under full load the cooler
    was almost silent while keeping GPU temps below 70C at all times with the average load temp being around 68C.

    In summary if your in the market for an AMD Fury card the ASUS is a great choice. Its well built and packaged, cool and silent in operation and yields a decent performance
    boost from Overclocking,

    LN2 results:
    Josh a budding Overclocker in our technical department is an AMD fan and saw the potential for XOC with this card. So we decided to team up and test on Ln2. We modded
    the card in line with ASUS guide so LN2 could be used. This essentially means moding the 0.95v reference rail to avoid block screens at low temperatures and high voltages.
    modding this rail to be around 1.3v meant we could bench around -90 with a smooth benching experience and no black screen issues.

    We then flashed an ASUS R and D bios which allowed for a special version of GPU tweak to run high Core and Memory voltages. Using Josh's CPU and my LN2 pots, Kingston
    mems and 8Pack PSU we managed to take the 3D Mark Sky Diver global first place with an overclock of 1437 on the core and 1025mhz on the HBM memory. Thats over
    100% OC on the memory which I thought was very impressive.

    Here is the screenshot of this great score.
    [​IMG]

    and the link to Josh's submission on HWbot.
    http://hwbot.org/submission/2979704_

    Congratulations to Josh on his first Gold Cup.

    This card once modded was really fun to bench and we hope to try more next week which I will update the thread with. Thanks to Shamino and Elmor for providing us with the
    mods and R and D software for this card, As usual ASUS lead in developing XOC across all GPU.

    I'm really liking the look of the Strix card but I just know that Asus pricing is going to put it too close to 500 quid and Fury X/980ti territory. I'm still sat back waiting for stock for the X to land which is annoying, The way things are going it'll be Winter before there readily available.

    It a pity neither Fury card so far has 2 dvi connectors as I still run 2 dvi monitors, so which one I go for will depend on the cards' price + 1 or 2 active dp-dvi adapters.

    Does anyone else suspect the name Fury tri-X has the potential to confuse some buyers

    No doubt a few will buy the wrong card in error.
