In some circumstances when pushing the volume to the limit, speakers can breakdown from excess heat and excursion. The intelligent technology defends the speakers by setting thermal and excursion thresholds, and monitoring disparities due to loading and temperature influence.

Stay Cool with ROG Technology Enhancements

aeroaccelerator technology

AEROACCELERATOR Technology with 12v fans AeroAccelerator (AA) technology increases the speed and effectiveness of airflow through the laptop. The moulded aluminium alloy shroud round the intake features curved edges and elevated guides that channel extra cool air into the fan. The ROG Zephyrus includes 12V fans, spinning 17% faster and increasing air pressure by up to 27%, they are more prevailing than the 5V fans typically found in laptops. The fan blades are made of a special liquid crystal polymer (LCP) this design reduces the blades thickness and as a result adding more blades can improve airflow through the fan by 26%.


improved lifespan and increased stability ROG Zephyrus features an Anti-Dust Cooling system with a patented centrifugal fan module, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the centre. Particles in the fan module are then blown along the walls and eventually out of the chassis through two anti-dust exhaust tunnels. Cool air passes over 0.1mm thick heatsink fins, the thinner profile reduces air resistance allowing more fins to help increase the surface area for enhanced heat dissipation.

heat pipes

Effective thermal dissipation Zephyrus successfully channels heat to the thermal fins, where it’s rapidly dissipated and exhausted outside the chassis with a special heat pipe dedicated to the power board, and more for the GPU and CPU.

fan overboost

regulate fan speeds to control noise levels & cooling OverBoost is the most forceful setting, while the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures you can select different modes to suit the situation, with the fastest fan speed to fully explore the potential of ROG Zephyrus. When you want some quiet time switch to silent mode, which lowers the fan speed. Easily regulate fan speeds to control noise levels and cooling performance with a single press of function key (F5).
