R9 280X is equipped with WINDFORCE 3X plus patented "Triangle Cool" technology. The airflow and heat dissipation capabilities keep the card cool and quiet. Even more, both R9 28oX and R9 270X are overclocked to 1100 MHz at boost clock. These two models are packed with DirectX 11.2 support, plus AMD PowerTune and CrossFire technology.
WINDFORCE 3X Cooling Technology, GIGABYTE's innovative triple-fan solution with patented fans and three 8mm pure copper heat pipes, makes a combination of anti-turbulence inclined fans and pure copper heat pipes that helps to reduce excessive heat and minimizes the flow of turbulence between fans. The unique "Triangle Cool" Technology enhances the speed of heat dissipation by combining fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation.
By using GIGABYTE exclusive OC GURU II, gamers can monitor and adjust all important settings such as GPU clock, memory clock, fan speed, voltage, power target and online support. With the upgrade and easy-to-control user interface, OC GURU II can onverclock the cards in no time, for a plus of performance.
