DARE TO COOL
The GameCool 5 cooling system on ROG Phone 5s has
an optimum thermal structure featuring a centered CPU with the battery split
into two parts, one located on each side of the CPU. This ensures that the heat
generated by the CPU is transferred to all the edges and corners of the chassis
simultaneously for higher thermal efficiency. The re-shaped vapor chamber and
extensive graphite sheets also help to spread the heat evenly across the device
to reduce heat build-up in the middle.
AeroActive Cooler 5 intakes and expels an
incredible amount of cool air directly on the center of the phone — right where
the CPU is — to deliver an unbelievable 10°C4 drop in the CPU temperature.
