Video card is made in dark colours: PCB and enclosure of cooling system in black. Externally it is very similar to many of other ASUS video cards.

The cooling system is the radiator using three pipes instead of two. Heat pipes have direct contact with the surface of the GPU. They fit tightly in the grooves of the aluminum base. Blowing fan is placed between two raised sections of the radiator. And for a good blow of extreme areas it requires powerful air flow, which means higher fan speed. There is Everflow T129215SU fan with diameter of 92 mm (actual diameter of the blades a little less). The PCB is different from the standard and made in …
