EVGA and graphics cards go hand-in-hand. EVGA is the #1 NVIDIA Authorized Board Partner in the US and for good reason. Our full line of graphics cards offer unmatched performance, features and cooling.

T e c h n o l o g y

The new EVGA GeForce GTX 10 Series is powered by the next generation NVIDIA Pascal architecture - including the Ultimate GeForce: GTX 1080 Ti - giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency and unbelievable features.

EVGA's patented iCX is a revolutionary cooling solution that detects everything and utilizes interactive cooling to ensure "Peace of Mind Gaming". Traditionally, graphics cards are built to cool based on GPU temperature. With today's graphics cards using less and less power, hotspots around other components have the potential to leave a chilling effect on your gaming session. To combat this, EVGA created iCX.

Engineered using 11 new patents granted and pending, iCX is split into iCX Cooling and iCX Technology. Select EVGA GTX 10-Series graphics cards feature iCX Cooling, while other select models feature both iCX Cooling and iCX Technology.

iCX Cooling

iCX Cooling is comprised of multiple patented cooling innovations centered around moving as much heat away from the card and directing airflow towards hotspots.

iCX Cooling begins and ends with the goal of removing as much heat as possible from the graphics card and its vital components - without turning your graphics card into a jet engine. Towards this aim, EVGA designed new ways to not only transfer heat away from components, but also purposefully direct airflow towards the hottest areas of the card. More importantly, iCX Cooling allows EVGA's 10-Series graphics cards to remain no larger than a 2-slot footprint, which gives you more room in your system for cooling and components. While other companies are merely spinning their fans - or making bigger and bulkier cards to compensate - EVGA and iCX Cooling have taken heatsink engineering to another level.

The new die-cast baseplate and backplate provide direct contact to vital components to ensure that no component gets left behind.

A patented "Pin Fin" design on the baseplate interlaces with L-shaped fins to allow for more heat to be pulled away from the VRAM and PWM. An optimized air flow design directs airflow, while half-open fins maximize airflow to hotspot areas.

EVGA iCX Cooling features optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, which unlocks additional power for the GPU.

iCX Technology

iCX Technology combines a suite of sensors and micro-processing units with the improved iCX Cooling performance to make EVGA iCX the smartest and most efficieny cooling package available today.

iCX Technology leverages patented sensors and micro control processors with asynchronous fans to interactively-cool your graphics card. With at least 9 additional thermal sensors on the graphics card, iCX Technology can track emerging hotspots and direct iCX Cooling to beat the heat. Asynchronous fans cool only the areas that need cooling, which keeps your card quieter at all times. Through Precision XOC, you can also monitor every iCX sensor and control each fan. With EVGA iCX Technology, you can let your graphics card worry about its own temperatures for a change and truly enjoy Peace of Mind Gaming.

EVGA iCX uses a patented 9 sensor design controlled by micro control processors to determine fan speed for the GPU and VRAM/PWM areas.

EVGA 10-Series iCX graphics cards have 9 additional thermal sensors (1080 Ti K|NGP|N has 11) and multiple MCUs. All sensors can be displayed in EVGA Precision XOC and OSD.

iCX Technology uses asynchronous fans to cool graphics card components only as needed. These fans spin at different rates, ensuring that the correct areas of the card are cooled and reducing noise in the process.


EVGA Precision XOC utilizes the new tools afforded by iCX Technology to monitor every sensor on the graphics card, asynchronously control the cooling fans, adjust the OSD to show all temperature sensors, and overclock your card for gaming dominance.


EVGA is always trying new methods to protect your system.
Newer functions and technology make iCX a great system saver.

EVGA iCX Technology graphics cards feature an industry-first safety fuse to help protect your system from damage in the event of a power surge or catastrophic failure.

iCX Technology puts your graphics card temperatures in your line of sight. With configurable RGB lighting through Precision XOC, you'll know the temperature range of your GPU, PWM area, and VRAM simploy at a glance.
