The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system in the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G features two 90mm unique blade fans, alternate spinning, 3 composite copper heat pipes direct touch GPU, 3D active fan and Screen cooling, which together provide high efficiency heat dissipation.
The GIGABYTE “Alternate Spinning” is the only solution that can solve the turbulent airflow of adjacent fans.
Since the adjacent fans rotate in the same direction, the airflow direction is opposite between the fans, which will cause turbulent airflow and reduce heat dissipation efficiency.
The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G turns the adjacent fans in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans is the same, reducing the turbulence and enhancing the airflow pressure.
The airflow is spilt by the triangular fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow.
The 3D Active Fan in the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G Graphics Card provides semi-passive cooling, and the fans will remain off when the GPU is in a low load or low power game.
It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle.
The shape of the pure copper heat pipe maximizes the direct contact area with the GPU, enhancing heat transfer.
The heat pipe in the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G also covers the VRAM through a large metal plate contact to ensure proper cooling.
Extended heatsink design in the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G allows air flow to pass through, providing better heat dissipation.
For gamers who prefer a small build with powerful performance, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G delivers a compact graphics card with less than 200mm in length.
The card provides mighty performance and is easy to install in any small chassis as well.
The back plate in the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G not only provides an aesthetical shape, but also enhances the structure of the graphics card to provide complete protection.
Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface.
This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.
With the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Windforce OC 12G Graphics Card you can also attain the Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming OC 8GB Graphics Card.
