COOLING

To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix G16’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, whose fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. The full-width heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely-packed fins for a total surface area of 174,183mm², a 71% increase from the 2022 Strix G15. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall airflow. 

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the G16 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU*, the G16’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.

Full-Surround Vents

Hot air needs somewhere to go, so we redesigned the G16’s exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the G16 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. We even moved the heatsinks closer to the vents themselves, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine and avoid any recirculation.

Full-Width Heatsink

The G16 features 374 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, providing a total of 174,183 mm² of surface area — an increase of 71.26% from the 2022 Strix G15. The new full-width design is double the size of a typical laptop heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.

Tri-Fan Technology

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.

Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal

The 2023 Strix G16 features Thermal Grizzly’s cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal, which improves the substance's heat transfer even further. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium- and gallium-based compound offers 17X higher conductivity, in addition to CPU and GPU* temperature reductions of up to 15 degrees. Used exclusively by ROG, this material offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.

*Temperature improvements compared to the previous gen thermal compound, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

Up to 7 comprehensive heatpipes

The Strix G16’s comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. With 7 heat pipes and an increase in total coverage from 26% to 33% of the motherboard compared to last generation, this extensive thermal solution helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.

0dB Ambient Cooling

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.

Dust Filter

First introduced on the 2022 Zephyrus G14, the ROG Strix G16 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.

*Internal testing in a simulated dusty environment.

0.1mm ultra thin fin

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. With up to 374 heatsink fins totaling 174,183mm² of surface area, heat flows out of the system incredibly efficiently, letting your components boost higher, for longer.

CoolZone keyboard

Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard warm to the touch. To keep your fingers cool, small vents around the WASD keys let the fans draw cool air into the chassis from above.

Scenario Profiles

Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between these modes 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.
