E-mail Print PDF

EVGA is taking the issue of PC overheating very seriously with iCX-- a graphics card cooling system using 10 sensors linked to independent microcontrollers to ensure fine-tuned control over card temperature.

EVGA iCXThe launch comes after November 2016 reports of EVGA GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 graphics cards catching fire after getting a bit too hot to handle. The company quickly released a patch to resolve the issue, but the iCX system takes cooling a step further.

As the company puts it, iCX involves the embedding of 9 thermal sensors into the card circuit board. The sensors pick up extra heat and direct the asynchronous fans to cool the card down accordingly. Users also get "interactive cooling" through a "thermal LED display system," allowing them to check the sensors in real time.
