ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 OC is the company's fastest RTX 2080 offering, and designed to rival the quality of NVIDIA's own Founders Edition products. A high factory overclock, bolstered by a strong VRM solution, add to its premium credentials.

On all of these boards, I have not seen an USB-c controller. Does that mean it's integrated into the main chip?

Does it only function as a virtualink connection, or can I attach an USB-c HDD to it?

The USB controller is on the back of the PCB

Great review, I'm happy to see a STRIX review so soon! I noticed a few things though, you mentioned that the card has 3 displayport and 1 hdmi but in the picture it clearly looks like 2 displayport and 2 hdmi. Don't the 20 series cards use what nvidia calls "GPU Boost 4.0"? You stated that it was using 3.0. Someone also needs to update the GPU database on the site to reflect that this card uses 2x8 pin power

Can someone confirm the fans are stopped in idle for both mods? Because I saw different information in other review. Thanks

The 2080 Ti STRIX doesn't have fan stop in the default BIOS, this one does. No reason for you to not use the quiet BIOS anyway
