AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box Overview
When I first took the AORUS GTX 1080 Gaming Box out of the box I was actually surprised at how small it was. It has official dimensions of 212 x 96 x 162(mm) and is pretty much all made of metal. Its small size means that no matter what size desk or setup you have the Gaming Box should fit.
The front of the unit is pretty plain, all you have is a small AORUS logo towards the top.
Both sides of the unit are mesh, which allows air to flow through. On the main side you can see the graphics card with its large cooling fan. This is a desktop-class GeForce GTX 1080 with official clocks of 1607 MHz base and 1733 MHz GPU boost. By default the card is in its gaming mode, which has the clocks I just mentioned, but there is also an “OC Mode”, which has a base clock of 1632 MHz and boosts up to 1771 MHz.
Flipping around to the back is where you’ll find all of your connections. You have your Thunderbolt 3 connection, four USB 3.0 ports (one is a quick-charge port) and your power connection. On the graphics card itself you have three DisplayPort, one HDMI, and a DVI connection. If you plan to use an external monitor with the Gaming Box you can easily connect it to one of these. There is also a small fan at the back.
