AORUS ALL-AROUND COOLING SOLUTION
AORUS provides the all-around cooling solution for all key components of the graphics card. We take care not only GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure a stable overclock operation and longer life. On the front side, the GPU direct touch heat-pipes combines a metal base plate to dissipate the most heat from the GPU and VRAM. On the back side, the copper back plate dissipates the heat from the GPU back side. All other key components are taken care of very well by the WINDFORCE cooling module. AORUS ensures the customer a better cooling solution in many ways.

WINDFORCE 2X COOLING SYSTEM
Equipped with 2x 90mm unique blade fans, 4 pure copper composite heat-pipes, and heat-pipe direct touch GPU, the WINDFORCE 2X cooling system delivers an effective heat dissipation capacity.

RGB FUSION
With 16.8M customizable color options and numerous lighting effects, you could now choose the right scheme for your gaming rig through AORUS graphics engine.

STYLISH METAL BACK PLATE
The metal back plate offers rigidity and protection to the structure, while adding a sleek, clean look to the product.

Benchmarks

Temperatures

Room Temperature: 30C

In idle, the temperature is real good and at full load running 3D Mark Fire Strike temperature was ok and fans were slight loud.

Power Consumption

Wattage reading as per displayed by APC Pro 1000VA (Model no. BR1000G-IN) UPS.

Pros

  • Factory Overclocked
  • 4GB of Graphics RAM
  • Fan turns off on idle
  • Back Plate on the GPU

Cons

  • High Power consumption
  • Memory not overclocked

Conclusion

AORUS Radeon RX570 4GB is a great card for low budget gaming build, mostly giving decent gaming performance at 1080p resolution with moderate details. Gigabyte also gives a rough 5% performance increase with easy overclocking OC Mode alongside a nice cooling solution which pushes the temperature and noise at their lowest level.

The new back plate design with separate copper heat spreader onto the backside of the GPU chip is not that effective or helpful in increasing thermals capability of the overall card, as most of the heat is already drawn away via main heatpipe cooler. Instead it add more to the premier looks of the card.

At the conclusion AORUS Radeon RX570 4GB video card is a good product for budget gamers looking for smooth gaming experience at 1080p resolution with nice factory overclocking and cooling solution.
