GPU Tweak II

The ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC will not run at factory OC speed out of the box; you need to install GPU Tweak II software, in order to set the OC mode for the card. The card has three modes, OC mode, Gaming mode and Silent mode.

For manual controls, you need to click on Professional Mode on down right corner. The Professional Mode has all the necessary options for overclocking.

For lighting customization, you need to go to tools and click on AURA. Here you can customize lighting effects and cooler. I am little disappointed to see there are no separate cooler controls for different parts for the card.

Overclocking

As I said in previous NVIDIA GTX 10 series reviews, the new GPU Boost 3 automatically push the card as far as it can get and there not much headroom left for a manual overclocking. Also, considering that ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 already come with a factory overclock of 1708 Boost Clock, GPU already runs over 2020 MHz, though we have pushed the card even further and manage to get 1644 MHz base and 1758 Boost clock speed by manual overclocking and hitting 2062MHz with GPU Boost 3. Though with memory overclocking we have no luck.
