Cooling Tech & Design
I think the look and style of the custom fleet of Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards has been the best in Radeon history (just IMO) and ASRock really drives that home with the new RX 5700 XT Taichi+ 8G OC graphics card. It's not just looks and style, but the cooling tech underneath -- this is something we'll go into here and see just what ASRock has under the hood.
ASRock uses a triple-fan cooling system on the RX 5700 XT Taichi+ 8G OC graphics card, all backed with a black reinforced metal fr ame, black inside card cover, silver graphics card cover, and translucent black fans that flank a half-transparent fan blade in the middle. When it's lit up (as you can see in the image below) it looks awesome.
This teardown is a great way of checking out what makes the RX 5700 XT Taichi+ 8G OC tick.
The metal backplate isn't there just for looks, with ASRock saying they've used the metal backplate to avoid PCB bending. The stacking and assembling of the gears on the back also looks freaking amazing ,and is hands-down one of the best backplates on a graphics card yet.
We have a 2.5-slot graphics card with ASRock using 6 heat pipes to keep the card cool.
ASRock uses 10+1 phase power on the custom RX 5700 XT Taichi X series graphics cards.
