Asus ROG Strix 2080ti Watercooled OC vs Msi Rtx 2080Ti Gaming X Trio Fan Cooled OC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey im having a hard choice deciding whether I should go with a Strix or Trio 2080Ti. My question is if a EKWB custom loop cooled strix be able to overclock higher than a fan cooled Gaming X Trio? EKWB doesnt seem to have a waterblock for the Gaming X Trio and they dont seem to have any news about it.

What is the rest of your build? If you have high rpm case fans, I would go for water cooling.

Yes, the strix has a better PCB so adding water cooling just widens the gap.

I’ve been watching reviews and the Trio always performs better than the strix? Like in benchmark scores and even fps in games under the same processor,ram e.t.c

I think that is due to a better cooler, because the Strix has a slightly better PCB

high rpm fans doesn't mean that the loop will be cooled better. That's why static pressure fans are better for.
