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.

Does what it needs to do no problems what so ever, if you're triggered by the fact that the LEDS are not your favorite crayon color you should probably stay in pre school and not be buying computer parts

Galax GTX 1080 EXOC is good
This card came with a pre-build high end system from Zoostorm, called Inferno. I have to say I have not needed to overclock this card yet, as gives me my 1440p in Ultra settings on most of todays games, at good 60+ frame rate. Being a red colour system the fan's colour LED's work fine if you like red only. The software is basic but works. I have hit over 90c in temp a few times, so found that closing all internet connected widows helps the temp a bit, back to 82c max on default fan settings. I do recommend a custom fan curve. I would also love to find a water block for this, so I can do some overclocking and get more a bit more FPS when needed. So overall I find this a nice looking product, that fits well in a red theme case. Would I get a second one? Yes I would to be honest, just as long as I can get a water block.

Mr.
Well, it is a GTX 1080. If you are looking for a beast of a graphics card, a 1080 is one that you should really consider. It is a monster at 1080 and handles 1440p with ease and I have yet to play a game where I have to use settings below medium at 2560x1440p. I try my best to keep frame rates above 60fps because I have a high refresh rate monitor. But, this card is not without it's faults. One thing I have noticed in comparison to other 1080 cards that I have used is that the Backplate on this particular card gets extremely hot when compared to others. I am not sure as to this being a design flaw in cooling but if there is an actual reason to this it should be noted on the card's website page that goes into the detail about the card. The second thing I ran into is that the LEDs on the card can only be adjusted through GALAX's proprietary software which is terrible at best. The software is extremely in-comprehensive. You cannot create a custom fan curve, lighting effects are limited, and lack of overclocking adjustments make it better to just deal with a red led and use MSI Afterburner. Another thing that is truly disappointing is that there are small red LEDs under the fans that cannot be turned off or changed to a different color. They are also not included in the lighting effects that are in the proprietary software. But, that does not mean this is a bad card. Because of the GPU Boost 3.0 my card turbos beyond the "boost clock" that it comes with out of the box. My card in particular was able to hit 2050mhz with no adjustments. Because of this I only added a custom fan curve in afterburner to keep temps down only. The cooling solution on this card is beefy. Idle temps are in the low 30s (Celsius) and load temps never go above the mid 70s. Considering T-Junction on these cards is close to 90 I would say it works very well. However, that does not make this card worth $679.99 I bought my card around christmas 2016 when the card was $549. That is how much this card should cost, especially when you can go buy a EVGA FTW version for $549, not to mention other offerings from msi, zotac, and gigabyte that are closerr to the $500 mark. Save some money and buy one of those cards.
