EVGA Geforce GTX 780 with ACX Cooling (Active Cooling Xtreme)
Win a chance to exchange your EVGA Geforce GTX 780 ACX graphics card with a new EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 iCX Technology graphics card. On this edition of EVGA's Rewind Reward, we take a look back at EVGA Active Cooling Xtreme cooling solution for the EVGA 700 series.
EVGA’s ACX cooler, with its double ball bearing fans, redefined traditional enthusiast coolers. Starting with a 40% increase in heatsink volume, EVGA ACX was more efficient at dissipating heat, allowing for up to 15% lower GPU temperatures over traditional coolers. The baseplate was designed to reinforce and maintain a straight PCB, and also helped lower MOSFET temperatures by 7% and memory temperatures by 15%.
We also ensured that even the fan blades were of the highest quality. When compared to competitor’s dual-fan designs, EVGA ACX’s fans exhibited 700% greater strength and 25% lower weight. This resulted in the fans being 20% more efficient, requiring lower power levels. Of course, we also featured double ball bearing fans, which offered a 12 year lifespan - 4X longer when compared to competitors!
Our ACX Cooling was an innovative solution to keeping your graphics cards cool and quiet, and the successor to our ACS cooling solution.
