WINDFORCE 2X Cooling Tech
GIGABYTE has had great graphics card cooling technology for years courtesy of its WINDFORCE cooling technology, but it's also the other things like GPU Gauntlet Sorting - which has GIGABYTE scouring AMD's fabs to find the best Polaris GPUs for their AORUS cards.
It's not just the heat pipes and fans that make a cooler great; it's all of the engineering below - that AORUS details incredibly well here. We have the back side cooling module, with the GPU copper back plate, the PCB itself, then the front side cooling module, and finally - the 2 x 90mm blade fans on the front keeping the AORUS RX 570 4GB cool.
Advanced Copper Back Plate - Does It Help?
AORUS went with something a little different with its new cooler, which has a copper back plate directly on the GPU - something that is intricately connected to the VRAM and MOSFETs through the huge heat sink array.
We have 2 x 90mm fans, four pure copper composite heat pipes, and a heat pipe directly touching the GPU... what more could you want on a sub $200 graphics card?!
Ohhh, LEDs... how silly of me. AORUS provides their RGB Fusion technology, blasting out some not-so-in-your-face LEDs on the AORUS RX 570 4GB.
The cooling technology continues, with 'AORUS Excellence' spanning three areas: the metal plate, power indicators on the back, and durability.
The Smart Power LED Indicators are actually a great touch, something that I think should be a new normal on graphics cards.
