ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti STRIX OC Edition Review

After DirectCU and Matrix series ASUS has a new GeForce GTX 750 Ti card in its portfolio which even features a new revision of their DirectCU II cooler with 0dB Fan technology named STRIX, there is also a non-reference PCB which features super alloy components. Everything put together sounds like a higly compelling offer.
As you can see from the GPU-Z screenshot below, ASUS decided to use quite a high factory-overclock on the new GTX 750 Ti Strix OC Edition. Actually these settings make it one of the fastest GTX 750 Ti on the market. While the reference GTX 750 Ti GPU is set to work at 1'020 MHz for the base GPU and 1'085 MHz for the GPU Boost clock, the ASUS GTX 750 Ti Strix OC Edition works at 1'124 MHz for the base clock and 1'202 MHz for the Boost GPU clock.
Unfortunately, no factory overclocking was done on the 2GB of GDDR5 memory which remained at recommended 1'350MHz (5'400MHz effective).
While the typical Boost clock is set at 1'124 MHz, the maximum Boost of 1'202 MHz was achieved quite easily. When running 3DMark Fire Strike we noticed that the GPU was running even higher. In fact clock speeds in 3DMark Fire Strike are 1'254 MHz. These clocks can be achieved thanks to the capable custom cooler as well as a good TDP target (Nvidia's Boost technology being based on both temperature and power on this card, the latter being predominant). While running Furmark we noticed the card is still running at 1'254 MHz and the voltage is set at 1.043V.
