Galax’s XtremeTuner Plus


Galax also has a graphics card utility called the Xtreme Tuner Plus. It’s not the most complete graphics card utility out there, but it does offer a number of monitoring tools, configuration and settings. You will also need to download and install this utility to change the color or effect on the lighting of the “Hall of Fame” logo located on the side of the Galax GTX 1080 HOF.


Using the Xtreme Tuner Plus allows you to customize the color and lighting effect of the logo on the GTX 1080 HOF. There are four lighting effects or you can simply turn off the lights; and yes it’s a full RGB and not just 7 or 8 colors.

The Galax GTX 1080 HOF comes with a factory overclock settings out of the box. But you can still overclock it a little bit further using the 1-click OC utility. Or if you are feeling a little bit adventurous, you can also do manual overclocking and hope to push the card a little bit further. In my case, I tried the 5% OC offered by the utility and it was running okay. However, I couldn’t seem to push the card any further via manual OC. Need more time for this.

Now time to see how the GTX 1080 HOF performs on our test bench.
