ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 970 Video Card

ASUS sent over their Strix GTX 970, a factory overclocked version of the GTX 970 Maxwell GPU. It lists a few pretty interesting features, like a "zero decibel" mode when playing games that don't push the GPU - but how does it compare to its competition?

    Still using one in 2018 yolo

  • icecreammm2

    I bought this card a couple days ago. Most recent games still run with all settings on ultra in 1080p and sometimes even in 2.5K. Just amazing for a 4 year old card.

  • Rock N Roll Xombied

    Anyone watching this in 2018 because they are still proud of their ASUS Strix GTX 970? Well Iam :P :D

  • Richie Hyacinth

    I can now get one of these for less than $200 on auction on ebay, gtx 1050 ti aint an option anymore

  • Bryan Lotus

    people buy asus just because of better cooling

  • Erik Björk

    When ur watching in 2017 and still have a gtx 480

  • JDdawide

    I got this card today for 150 dollars!

  • Radu Barbulescu

    is it worth now for the same price as the gtx 1050ti ?

  • OnkelDannyTV

    Hi Linus and chat!I have a ASUS Strix Geforce 970 graphics card, and it is amazing!Anyway, there is one thing that really bothers me about the card, there is a super bright LED light that lights up white when the card is receiving power. Even when I turn my computer off, the light still lights up, and with a windowed case it is bright at night. Is there anyway I can disable this or do something to stop it? :)Hope you guys can help me! :)

  • TheMiningTeam

    It's easy to compare my system to this one because I have the exact same card!

    3 years later, I'm still playing all new games max out @1080p... I even got this card to hit 1513mhz/7800mhz @1212 voltage while still running at a cool 60-65°c under heavy load...

  • Sander Cohen

    I fell for the G1 gaming of the 970... As it happens, i ended up with a pretty good chip, but the extra features of the STRIX would've been pretty nice... It also suffers from a LOT of coil whine, but it clocks up 1627Mhz on the core and about 800 Mhz offset on memory, which is pretty crazy, considering that i didn't touch the voltage (it only induced screen tearing and worse coil whine). With a custom fan curve, it stays pretty quiet, but even at 100% fan speed, it makes surprisingly little sound. GPU never goes over 90, as that is where I've set the curve to 100% fan speed, but even so, doesn't go over 78 in actual games. Only in benchmarks, does the fan have to spin over 70%. Still, if not for my luck with the silicon lottery, i would've bought the STRIX any day.

  • Hazher Abdullah

    Asus Strix is so good

  • Ap3x

    Has anyone used this GTX 970 with a 430w that has a 8-pin power connector??

  • Liam 2077

    Holy shit my 970 runs at 54 degrees under load with Heaven Benchmark.

  • YoStu

    Card is good, fans are crap. Have read a lot about rattling and failing fans with these cards and one fan of my Strix also starts to make terrible noise when certain rpm is reached. And no, it's nothing simple like fan blades touching wires etc. When PC is turned off and I pull the noisy fan it's shaft feels very loose and it moves quite a bit vertically, quiet fan doesn't budge at all and feels tight so bearing seem to be shot.

  • Matthew Suffidy

    I just got this model for $250 Canadian. Used, but so mint there wasn't even dust on the fans. I sold my old 550 Ti for $50. It is a pretty cool card. I really got it for cpu compute in blender.

  • Blitzerman

    typically, just my luck! Mine has coil whine! SOOO ANNOYING!

  • stijngmail

    how on earth did you guys get plus 250 on the base clock of the 780 ti reference model without even touching the volts?i have the directu ii model and i can barely get the base clock over 1000 without artefacts...

  • Void Beats

    can it run csgo at 300fps*?

  • Ian Darmetko

    I just OCed my MSI Gaming 970 and man oh man is it a beast. I was able to get 8002mhz Memory Clock and an insane 1524mhz core clock with a temp of 65c under full load. I think I got pretty lucky with my card.

  • OPTERON PRIME

    Thank you Linus and Luke

  • Take Hiro LOL

    And now it will be the next potato...

  • How2Basics

  • Frocodile Fundee

  • MOHD JOHARI DINAH

    Need to know the the new of every card how much?

  • SumTing Wong

    Not a bad graphics card at all. I'm still rock n roll with it in 2017.

  • Arthurashr

    The question is... can it run Cookie Clicker??

  • JustToBe Blunt

    I love this card maxed out forza 6 at 2560x1440 averaged 65-70fps with a max of 90fps on some tracks.

  • Elsa Debroglie

    Looks like Linus has dirt all over his face in this video.

  • Pubudu Peiris

    I have the option of buying Asus GTX 970(used) or a Gigabyte/MSIGTX 1050TI (brand new) in 2017 Feb. Can someone suggest which is better?

  • David

    does anyone think that an evga 430 watt bronze certified psu would be enough for this card?

  • Anja Schwager

    I have a bud that gave me that for 100$ and I can get it from eBay for 259$

  • Robix

    i have it after 2 years the fans are breaking down

  • Mojito

    I love this card.. Got it.. And overclocked at 1580 mhz coreclock!!!

  • Game Byte

    970 was like 50% slower than 980?Now a slightly OCd 970 is equal to 980
