Game Cool and Play Silent
DirectCU II Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: 30% Cooler and 3X Quieter Performance
Exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heat pipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.
Patented Dual Wing-Blade 0dB Fans: Max Air Flow with 105% More Air Pressure
DirectCU II features dual 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards. The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU II the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.
ASUS FanConnect: Targeted Supplemental Cooling
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, ROG Strix GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics cards feature a 4-pin GPU-controlled header that can be connected to system fan for targeted supplemental cooling.
