AORUS isn't scared of making their products stand out from the crowd, and the new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G does just that - it is a nice bump on the looks side of things, and of course: performance. But first, let's take a look around the card and see what stands out.

The front of the box doesn't do much, but it's what's on the inside that counts, right?

There's much more information on the back of the box, explaining the WINDFORCE Stack 3X cooling system, large copper base plate, advanced copper back plate, and more.

The rear of the AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G is where the big difference takes place - the massive copper base plate keeps the GPU nice and cool.

The elaborate heat sink array can be seen here, with the 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors on the far right.

AORUS went into overdrive to keep the GTX 1080 Xtreme Edition 8G cool, just look at the chunky heat sink underneath the cooler.

The heat sink fins extend past the end of the graphics card itself, snuggled right next to the PCIe power connectors.
