EVGA isn't a stranger to the high-end graphics card market, and with its first release of GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards - the cooling system wasn't perfect. It forced EVGA to rethink their cooling strategy, which is where moved towards their new iCX cooling technology - and now, the GTX 1080 SuperClocked 2 w/iCX graphics card.

 

 

You'd think that the discovery of an issue with their cooling would see EVGA tweak the cooling system, and re-release the card - but no, the company prides itself on high-quality products. EVGA went back to the drawing board with its new iCX technology, as it's not just a new cooler - it is a combination of a new PCB, thermal modules, LEDs, and their great Precision XOC software.

 

 

We'll go into detail on both EVGA's upgrades to the card, as the iCX cooling tech isn't just a cooler - it has many different new parts and features. All of this builds into the hype of the upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti from EVGA, which should rock the same iCX cooling technology. It looks great, performs silently - and overclocks like a boss past 2.1GHz on the GPU.
