Cooling Technology

 

AORUS upgraded their cooling solution for the GeForce GTX 1080 11G graphics card, with an extensive cooler that takes care of the GPU, VRAM, and MOSFET - keeping them all cool with 3 x 100mm stack fans, a front copper base plate, and the copper back plate.

As you can see, there's a lot going on under the hood on the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11G.

The large copper base plate has direct contact to both the GPU and VRAM, pulling heat from the hottest running components and into the heat sink.

Where AORUS does things very differently, is that their engineers have designed the advanced copper back plate cooling which removes additional heat from the rear of the GPU. There is more heat than ever being generated by these new GPUs on the 14nm FinFET process, so the additional attention to detail from AORUS is beyond welcomed.

AORUS cooling isn't a joke - it's an advanced set of technologies and features.

There's also RGB Fusion, which lets you customize your GTX 1080 Ti 11G graphics card through RGB LEDs.

Something else that AORUS does that I really love is that there are additional display outputs - with an additional HDMI 2.0 connector at the back, as well as DVI - so you can have four outputs at once.

On top of that, there's also another HDMI 2.0 port on the end of the card for VR setups - specifically, if you have a front HDMI 2.0 header on your PC for easy access to the Rift and Vive headsets.

It's not just the cooling, but overclocking as well.
