This thermal design features a vapor chamber that houses its compressed cooling system which is aided by a triple-fan cooling system. These fans are custom-engineered 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans with wind-guiding structures which help achieve a 10% increase in airflow when compared to the previous generation fans.
