Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features two exclusive 10 mm direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that transports 40% more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.
DirectCU III features triple 0dB fans engineered with a patented, new 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 like League of Legends® and StarCraft® in complete silence — because the fan stops completely when the GPU temperature remains below a set level*.
