New Phantom cooler design

Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom, continue the elegant design of the Phantom cooler. The new Phantom comes with brand new fans design (patent M456684/ZL201320139962.6) that includes
1) Removable fan design – each fan body can be removed to clean if necessary
2) 5 pieces of 8mm copper heat-pipe and copper base - better thermal performance
3)solid structure
With this new outstanding innovated thermal design and optimized product design Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom delivers an extreme gaming performance for enthusiast gamers

  With the new Phantom cooler, Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom with factory over-clocked speed gets 5.6dB quieter than reference board under full load operation.
  Thanks to the new Phantom cooler, Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom with factory over-clocked speed performs 5°C lower GPU temperature than reference board with reference clock.

8-phase PWM
Gainward designs eight phases for GPU core that helps to supply more fuel to the 3D graphics engine and share the current load on each phase also reduce the temperature of those phases. With those 8 phases work together, Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom can be over-clocked easily and safely , the overall efficiency can be improved, the choke noise and EMI noise also be reduced

Gainward continues using DrMOS in those 8 phases PWM for core power circuit. DrMOS is designed to handle high current with low noise operation and less heat generating.
Gainward Great 8 cm silent PWM fans
Great 8 cm silent PWM Fan (GR8) achieves highest cooling performance at much lower temperatures under power saving mode.
Gainward Grand-Prix Heat-Pipes
Hybrid Cooler
Gainward Grand-Prix Heat-Pipes Hybrid Cooler, was designed in 8 mm copper heat-pipes on a copper base conducting heat away from GPU at highest efficiency, then dissipating onto aluminum heatsinks, which are forced ventilated with Great 8 cm silent PWM fans (GR8).
Five Display Ports-
Dual-link DVI-I,mini DP(v1.2) *3, mini HDMI(v2.0)

Five display ports located in a row, leave enough space on the top for the hot air to flow out (adding 40% space than previous generation-GTX 780/780 Ti). This can benefit the cooler performance that lower the GPU temperature or lower the acoustic level.
All the connectors are metal-shielding, for EMI shielding and dustproof.
Five display ports provides users flexible configuration for multi- monitor system.
miniDP port *3 - DP port becomes popular on NB and desktop PC. NB/PC uses miniDP (or ThunderBolt-same physical spec. as miniDP) to save space, and more and more high end monitor to feature miniDP as well as DP
miniHDMI - miniHDMI is so popular on mobile device now, so it is even easier to get miniHDMI to HDMI cable than a HDMI to HDMI cable
