Very cool but the brand mixing would drive me nuts, 2 x ROG products and then an EVGA product, I'd have to have all ROG

Brand mixing doesn't bother me very much. I think you can easily make it work in your favour. Plus some would say the EVGA SC3 is better than the Strix.

yeah it doesn't bother me either. The only issue i have with FTW3 is it doesn't boost up to 2ghz, but i guess it's normal. Probably the same happens with the STRIX.

Boosting to 2Ghz with a 1080Ti out of the box is not terribly common as far as I know. Even 1080's don't always boost that far. Usually it's just shy of 2Ghz.

I have a SC Black - essentially a reference card with better air cooler. It's on water and out of the box will boost to 1974MHz and I can't get it stable at 2GHz...

1974Mhz is the default for most Pascal boost clocks, yeah. That's what my 1080 hit as well, then when temperatures surpassed 60°C it settled at around 1962Mhz. It can clock beyond 2Ghz though. It's at 2050Mhz at the moment with stock voltages. It's not unusual for a 1080Ti to not surpass 2Ghz, but most would be able to hit 2Ghz as far as I can remember.
