Unpleasant Surprise
I'm a system builder, so I build a lot of PCs. I'd never used any Galaxy products before, but I thought I'd give them a try when I saw they had GTX 1080 pairs on sale during Black Friday. I bought two of these cards with the intention of using them in a couple of white-themed machines, and I was very surprised to discover after installation that these cards have a set of red LEDs beneath the fans WHICH CANNOT BE TURNED OFF. This is even more of a shock when you consider that these cards have customizable RGB LEDs behind the logo - they went to all the trouble of adding RGB LEDs and customization control (which, annoyingly, only changes the color from the default red when the Galax software is running), but only for one set of lights. I cannot fathom why anyone would do this. There's no point to having one set of lights customizable and not the other, and if you don't have a red-themed build then you're going to have clashing light colors. What really gets me is that there is NO mention of these unchangeable red LEDs anywhere on the product page for these cards, so I had no way of knowing that these cards weren't going to work with the builds I had planned. On top of all that, these cards are exhibiting the worst coil whine I've ever heard from a graphics card. It's seriously awful. As a result of all these issues, I am deeply unhappy with my purchase. I plan to never buy or recommend Galax products again, and will do my best to warn others on the tech forums I frequent about the issues I've encountered. They'd have to pull off a small miracle of customer service to change my mind at this point - I'm not holding my breath.

Galax GTX 1080 EXOC
So far pretty impressed other than the fact that the card has always-on red LED's on both of the 100mm fans. The card also seems to have a bit of coil whine, but not as bad as several other cards I've had. Other than that its a very solid overclocker (mine hits 2101MHz and stables out at around 2072MHz). As far as thermals go it seems pretty impressive topping out at around 72c with a custom fan curve. Overall for the price I paid on sale I'm happy.
