The new ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix GeForce RTX 4090 OC represents the very best air-cooled custom-design implementation of the new NVIDIA flagship that ASUS has to offer, and we’re reviewing it today. The ROG Strix brand was originally designed as a notch below bleeding-edge brands like the ROG Matrix and ROG Ares; but over the years has become one of the top custom-design graphics card brands to look out for, spanning all market segments. With the RTX 40-series, ASUS is dialing things up a bit, with an extremely premium product design that looks as much a work of art as technology; and has given it the company’s highest factory-overclock for air-cooled graphics cards.

Republic of Gamers (ROG), part of the ASUS family, is dedicated to creating innovative hardcore gaming hardware for gamers. ROG is committed to providing the absolute best performance and quality from its complete line of products. ROG is for those keen on the finest gaming hardware and software as it enables the ultimate computing experience for gamers and enthusiasts worldwide. It incorporates a stylish gamer-focused design, merging the excitement of gaming with a unique premium style.
Bigger and better. Axial-tech fans spin on dual-ball bearings and have been scaled up to propel 23% more air through the card, setting the stage for lower temperatures, less noise, and higher performance.
Reverse Rotation and 0dB Technology
The two side fans spin counterclockwise to minimize turbulence and maximize air dispersion through the heatsink. All three fans come to a standstill when GPU temps are below 50 Celsius, letting you play less-demanding games or perform light tasks in relative silence. Fans start up again when temps are over 55 C, referencing a speed curve that balances performance and acoustics for work or play.
The custom sink is generously sized and structured to soak up heat from the GeForce RTX 4090 GPU so that it can be efficiently whisked away by the three Axial-tech fans.
Premium Power Delivery
Digital power control, an array of high-current power stages, and a lineup of 15K caps ensure massive reserves to reliably push performance boundaries.
Know if your PSU is worthy. ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards feature a high-speed circuit that constantly monitors input power from the PSU and utilizes conveniently placed LEDs to indicate voltage regulation issues and cable connection problems.
