Since NVIDIA disallows factory overclocked models with any GTX 1070 Ti, all cards clocks remain the same (see above for more details.) The difference maker is how the cards are built and cooled. For GALAX, they have undoubtedly upped their game in recent years and have been a growing name since they broke out of their rather conservative position in the market. Now GALAX sits comfortably alongside other mainstream brands as a viable competitor, renouncing its once budget position in favor of a more enthusiast-centric branding.
The EX series from GALAX features a black, metal cooling shroud and backplate. The looks is quite tech-inspired and features dual fans for cooling. The card has a built in backplate which is distinct from the EX-SNPR because of the lack of the accent lighting. The LED features of this card are centered on the logo sideplate and LED fans.
