A custom vapor chamber is in direct contact with the card’s GPU for faster heat dispersal, while copper heat-pipes and extended cooling fins further transfer heat out and away from the card to keep it running cool. With water cooling, the ROG Poseidon GTX 980 achieves up to 27آ°C-lower running temperatures than reference designs آ— translating to gaming performance that’s up to 10% faster in Watch Dogsآ™ and 7% faster in Battlefield 4آ™. What’s more, with standard آ¼-inch threaded fittings, the ROG Poseidon GTX 980 easily accommodates existing cooling equipment, so users can get going with water cooling right away. The new card also features dust-proof fans that are both quiet and help keep the card free of particulates, reducing the need for routine cleaning or maintenance.
