DirectCU II with 0dB Fan Technology
15% cooler. Silent gaming.
Exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology outperforms reference designs with an exclusive 10mm heatpipe that transports 40% more heat away from the GPU. Along with high-performance 0dB fan technology, the ASUS GTX 980 20th Anniversary Gold Edition lets you enjoy games like League of Legends® and StarCraft® in complete silence — because the fan stops completely when the GPU temperature remains below a set level.

Instant defrost. Say goodbye to cold bugs.
A brand-new ASUS-exclusive technology that'll seriously excite your extreme-overclocking ambitions. This clever feature instantly defrosts your card's memory during subzero overclocking to ensure sustained stability. With a flip of a switch you can wave goodbye to cold bugs — so you can take subzero overclocking even further!
One-press VBIOS reload
You can overclock with confidence thanks to Safe Mode. One tap of the Clear VBIOS button restores your graphics card's default frequencies and voltages, so you can be as experimental as you dare!
DIGI+ VRM with Black Metallic Capacitors and 14-phase Super Alloy Power
30%-less power noise and 5X-greater durability
Acclaimed DIGI+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) technology delivers 14-phase power and digital voltage regulation, while Super Alloy Power's Japanese-made 10K black-metallic capacitors, concrete-core chokes and hardened MOSFETs all withstand much greater stress and heat. The result is an ultra-stable graphics card that's forged for extreme overclocking. You benefit from loads of headroom for experimental performance tuning without generating distracting whines and buzzes.
GPU Tweak with XSplit Gamecaster
GPU Tweak: Real-time intuitive graphics tuning
