ENHANCED GTX 1080 COOLING
Triple Wing-Blade GPU Cooling
DirectCU III features triple 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 III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.
FANCONNECT CONTROLLED GPU COOLING
GPU Controlled Fan Headers
When you are gaming it is commonly found GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The ROG STRIX 1080 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans fort argeted cooling on your GTX 1080.
