DirectCU II cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heat pipes that transport more heat away from the GPU, achieving a cooler gaming performance.
DirectCU II features dual fans engineered with a wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at quieter volumes. The fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence.
When gaming, GPU temperatures are often higher than CPU temps. However, chassis fans usually reference CPU temperatures only, which results in inefficient cooling of the system. For optimal thermal performance, this graphics card features a 4-pin GPU-controlled header that can be connected to system fan for targeted supplemental cooling.
Auto-Extreme technology ensures consistent graphics card quality as well as improved performance and longevity. This manufacturing process is also environmentally friendly, eliminating harsh chemicals and reducing power consumption.
