The Dual-X cooler featured in the latest SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 500 Series cards is an all-new design. Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.


Intelligent Fan Control III


Enjoy complete silence under light workloads with entirely passive cooling. No spinning fans means no distractions while you work or chill.





Traditional fan may have up to 10% difference on fan RPM from fan to fan at the same fan duty cycle. Now with the new fan controller on the SAPPHIRE NITRO+, this tolerance is reduced to 3.2%. This improvement on the accuracy ensures the cooling and noise performance of every card is up to the standard.



With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check system. To resolve a specific fan issue, SAPPHIRE's Quick Connect System provides a quick and easy solution. If there's a fan issue detected, the user doesn't need to return the entire card.
