Hovering at 300W
Nearly all of our custom GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards have been hovering at around 300W total system use, with the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming falling into line perfectly. Our entire Core i7-5960X system with the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming installed used a total of 300W under load.
When overclocked, it went up to around 330-350W depending on the test, but this isn't too bad considering the card has 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. It's capable of using far more but doesn't need to in order to provide the performance.
Temperature & Noise
While running the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming graphics card through our benchmarking sessions, the fans did spin up but didn't make any noise that I would complain about at all. It was a near silent gaming experience, which is what I want from a graphics card like this.
As for the temperature, the GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming didn't hit over 70C under load, even when we had it overclocked to nearly 2.1GHz boost on the GPU.
