The XTREME 8G uses their Windforce triple fan cooler, which uses rather large 100mm fans, with direct heatpipes and 12+2 power phases, uses a metal backplate with the Aorus logo lit up with RGB illumnation, and you can actually see a mock up of the lighting on the cards on gigabyte’s product page.

As for the lighting the lighting options on the XTREEME 8G Aorus has used are more restrained compared to other cards to aim for a bit more subtle lighting rather than a neon light show. Gigabyte says because they have used the 5V RGB LED you can control the RGB effects through their Gigabyte RGB Fusion software and Aorus Engine for overclocking, we aren’t aware if other motherboard software will be able to control the lighting as well.

It also includes Gigabyte’s Power indicators which will flash on the PCB side of the GPU when power is unstable or behaving abnormally.

Video Outputs

Gigabyte Aorus has gone all out with its video outputs on the XTREME 8G, the reference card only allows up to 5 outputs, though this one has 7 with a maximum of 5 used at any one time, in a triple HDMI, single DisplayPort and USB Type-C output or triple DisplayPort, single HDMI and USB Type-C connector for more options for those using multi monitor setups.
