Seriously Cool. Surprisingly Quiet.
ROG uses a strategic mix of hardware and features to achieve ideal cooling for each combination of components and chassis, while keeping noise levels low. Cutting-edge fan design and liquid metal work together with smart software to optimize your experience for work and play.

CPU and GPU cool with liquid metal
Over a year of testing with various processors, ROG engineers observed reductions in temperatures up to 13 degrees Celsius with liquid metal, depending on the CPU. And unlike typical pastes, liquid metal will also never dry out, improving long term stability.
New for 2022, select ROG models now feature Thermal Grizzly’s cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme, which improves liquid metal's heat transfer even further. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium- and gallium-based compound offers 17X higher conductivity and CPU/GPU temperatures up to 15 degrees cooler. Used exclusively by ROG, this material offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.
Hot air needs somewhere to go, so we redesigned the Strix 16/18 series' exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the Strix 16/18 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. The chassis itself was also moved even closer to the heatsinks, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine and avoid any recirculation.
At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Tri-Fan Technology directs air though precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.
Targeted Airflow with
Internal Blast Technology
Internal Blast Cooling uses precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis to direct airflow toward internal components. When compared to more traditional designs, this allows for more efficient cooling, reducing CPU and GPU temperatures by up to 6°C. Lower temperatures mean higher sustained boost clocks during intense gaming sessions.
Arc Flow Fans™ move more air with less noise
Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of our Arc Flow fans. Traditional fan blades have a single thickness from base to tip. Our 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™ have a variable thickness design, down to 0.1mm at the tip. This approach reduces resonance and turbulence, moving up to 13% more air.*
Variable Blade Thickness design reduces air collision
Our fans use blades of variable thickness and shape to reduce turbulence and maximize airflow efficiency. By changing from a high to low pressure area gradually before being expelled by the fan, the air turbulence is drastically reduced compared to traditional fan blade designs. This patented new design is made possible by the latest liquid-crystal-polymer processing technologies that allow us to create ultrathin, strong fan blades for increased air intake.
Anti-Resonance design reduces turbulence
Our new Arc Flow fans were inspired by the most aerodynamic designs found in nature. Each blade is capped with a tip to regulate airflow, the same way that a bird’s feathers are tipped to keep the bird balanced in flight. The blade caps use a wave pattern that is inspired by the variegated wingtips of a bird; guiding the flow of air around the fan while minimizing turbulence for maximum efficiency.
0dB Ambient Cooling, Zero Distractions
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
First introduced on the Zephyrus G14, the ROG Flow X16 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.
Anti-Dust Tunnels eject debris
Our upgraded thermal module design features shorter anti-dust tunnels that leave up to 5% more space around the fan, improving airflow by up to 15%. Preventing the buildup of dust ensures the long-term stability and reliability of your system.
Open up the vents with
AAS Plus 2.0
Active Aerodynamic System Plus (AAS Plus) pushes the AAS concept further on select models, opening a massive 28.5mm air intake behind the tilted secondary display that increases airflow by up to 30%. Instead of drawing in air from below the laptop, where components can warm incoming air, this top-facing vent draws cooler air from above. The larger space also helps keep noise levels below 43dB in performance mode, enabling a quieter gaming experience.
Up to 7
got you covered
Our comprehensive solution uses up to seven heatpipes and quad heatsinks for efficient dissipation across all internal components. More heatpipes means more efficient heat transfer, and unlike simpler designs which only cover the CPU and GPU, this layout also draws heat away from the video RAM and voltage regulation modules for better system stability.
Full-width Heatsink dissipates more heat
The X16 features 330 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, with a total of 110,902mm² of surface area. This all-copper construction continues to the full-width heatsink, which is double the size of a normal heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.
0.1mm ultra thin fin
for the win
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. There are up to 252 heatsink fins totaling 110,328mm² of surface area.
Scenario Profiles give you the right cooling at the right time
Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between them based on the application you're running, alongside other vital system settings. Switch between lighting configurations automatically, disable the Windows key and touchpad during games, and automate to your heart's content. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand.
