It has the windforce cooling featuring dual 100mm Fans with a unique blade design optimize for air flow spinning in an alternate direction to push the hot air away from the card. It has the angular fins to maximize air contact and a large copper base plate that has a direct contact with the GPU and VRAMs, even the heat-pipes are made from various material to help disperse the heat better.

Since its an Xtreme Edition, means it supports VR right out of the box. In VR mode all 6 ports are enabled (3x HMDI and 3x DP) except for the DVI-D port. Also has RGB lighting which you can customize in the software tho is limited to the X-strips, logo and fan stop sign, I wished they had use the Tron-inspire lighting from the 900 Series GPU. Maybe there were cooling challenges so they forgo the concept total.
