WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System


The WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features 2 pure copper composite heat-pipes, special fin architecture, unique blade fan design, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

Cooling Fans


This Unique Blade Fan Design spilts the airflow by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.

3D Active Fan with LED Indicators


The semi-passive fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.

Efficient Composite Heat Pipes


The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.

Heat Pipe Direct Touch


The pure copper heat pipes maximize their direct contact to the GPU Chip.
