Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go
We didn't have much time to overclock our R9 380X STRIX, so expect us to do another article to follow up on this in the next week or so.
Our entire Intel Core i7-5960X system with the ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX card consumed just 260W while in Heaven, and fluctuated up to around 270W during our testing on other games.
Due to the limitation with the NDA time and my huge job of retesting all of our cards at all four resolutions because of our huge shift to Windows 10, I didn't have time to do the usual sound testing. But, the R9 380X STRIX was silent throughout all of our testing. Manually cranking the fans up will, of course, make it louder, and cooler - but there's no need to do this.
ASUS impressed us, like most other vendors now with 0dB fans, in their R9 380X STRIX.
