IceStorm is the most advanced, most powerful graphics card cooling system available from ZOTAC yet. The IceStorm performance focuses on full coverage air flow maximization, wide-area coverage heat dissipation, reduction of turbulence, and vibration control. In a multifaceted strategy utilizing dual and triple 90mm fan solutions, they combine the best thermal capabilities of copper and aluminum to overpower the overwhelming capabilities of Nvidia’s latest graphics card to maximize heat dissipation to produce not only the coolest performance, but one of our quietest.

ExoArmor adds a functional aesthetic to the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 AMP! Extreme and AMP! Omega Editions to help channel air and reduce turbulence to smooth out airflow, reduce vibrations and noise. Carbon ExoArmor, exclusive to the AMP! Extreme Edition, uses a water transfer printing technique to give the fan shroud and back-plate a touch of style that resembles carbon fiber. A unique dual-colored lighting system, LIGHT.id, enhances the visual appeal with a reactive response that breathe and illuminate green during normal use and red during intensive utilization. For those preferring an entirely stealth visual appeal, LIGHT.id can be disabled.

ZOTAC OC Plus is an exclusive power regulation controller module that communicates directly with the GPU via internal bus and the new ZOTAC FireStorm real-time overclocking software via internal USB interface to bring detailed real-time monitoring intelligence and overclocking capabilities. FireStorm features an all new easy to use interface featuring quick overclock presets, precise overclocking adjustments, and exclusively for the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 AMP!
