    WINDFORCE 3X cooling system plus patented "Triangle Cool", vastly cooler and quieter!
    GV-R928XOC-3GD features WINDFORCE 3X Cooling Technology, GIGABYTE's innovative triple-fan solution with patented anti-turbulence inclined fans and three 8mm pure copper heat pipes. The combination of anti-turbulence inclined fans and pure copper heat pipes helps to reduce excessive heat and minimizes the flow of turbulence between fans. The unique "Triangle Cool" Technology enhances the speed of heat dissipation. This technology combines 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 dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans.

    Unlimited OC Experience with OC GURU II
    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.

    APP Acceleration technology
    With advanced video features such as color correction, image sharpening and noise removal, AMD App Acceleration sets the bar for beautiful movies. And when it's time to multi-task, the optimized GCN Architecture is more than ready to make quick work of everyday applications.
