Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (4 x 8GB) 3600MHz CL16 DDR4 Memory Kit
From top to bottom, the ASUS RTX 3060 ROG Strix has been designed to push performance boundaries. The ASUS RTX 3060 features a newly tuned Axial-tech fan design with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence and a larger, more impressive heatsink that is ready for the most demanding thermal loads.
The PCB has some new tricks up its sleeves, and even the backplate has received some performance-boosting changes. For gamers who want to get the most out of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the ASUS RTX 3060 ROG Strix delivers in every way.

About the ASUS RTX 3060 V2 OC ROG Strix 12G Graphics Card
Axial-tech Fan Design
Three cutting edge fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure.
The two side fans spin counterclockwise to reduce the turbulence and in order to eliminate the unnecessary noise, a stop mode halts all fans when the GPU temp falls below 50 degrees and power consumption is low.
In order to ensure maximum benefit from the upgraded axial-fan design ASUS have incorporated a new manufacturing process that polishes the surface of the heat-spreader to improve smoothness at the microscopic level. The even surface allows for maximum contact with the die and improved thermal transfer.
Improved PCB Features
Top-shelf capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs are selected to effortlessly deliver hundreds of watts at a millisecond’s notice. The Super Alloy Power II parts and smooth joints on the rear of the PCB ensure each ASUS RTX 3060 graphics card meets rigorous specifications.
The rear of the ASUS RTX 3060 graphics card sports two PWM FanConnect headers that provide additional DIY flexibility.
Fresh Shroud Design
In addition to under-the-hood design changes, the ASUS RTX 3060 ROG Strix features a new face with metal accents that mirror the design aesthetic of ROG and ROG Strix motherboards. Textured accents in a greyscale colorway blend seamlessly into subtle builds or make a striking impact while the card is vertically mounted and lit by chassis LEDs.
It’s Cooler Out Back
For enhanced heat dissipation, a wide backplate vent and shortened PCB allow hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the cooler. The I/O bracket is made from stainless steel to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. A conveniently placed Dual BIOS switch allows quick selection between “performance” and “quiet” mode. To top it off, an ROG logo with addressable RGB backlighting adds flair.
A new addressable RGB element lines the front edge of the card and can be customized with Armoury Crate software to sync lighting and effects with other ROG components.
GPU Tweak II
The ASUS GPU Tweak II utility takes the ASUS RTX 3060 graphics card tuning to the next level. It allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customisable on-screen display.
