The GTX 780 DirtectCU II features a new third generation DirectCU II cooler. It uses a CoolTech fan that is a cross between lateral-flow and top-flow fans, which will ensure greater sweep. The cooler uses this fan in combination with a normal top-flow fan at the rear. Under the shroud and fans is an aluminum fin-stack heatsink which has four 8mm thick and a central 10mm thick copper heatpipes that make direct contact with the GPU.
