COOLING



CUTTING-EDGE COOLING BOOSTS PERFORMANCE



Game in stealth with quieter, more effective cooling. Liquid metal compound on the CPU improves heat transfer for easier dissipation. Upgraded fans boast 84 blades apiece, each reshaped to push more air with less noise and turbulence. Air flows through four heatsinks and fan outlets to rapidly expel heat. You can customize system settings on a per-app basis, so cooling and acoustics are optimized automatically for the task. All these improvements allow ROG Boost to overclock the GPU in Turbo mode, and they open up extra thermal headroom to pursue even higher GPU clocks and also overclock the CPU.

Liquid metal

Liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly reduces CPU temperatures by 16 °C compared to standard thermal paste. Painting it onto CPUs is delicate work typically done by hand, but ROG commissioned custom equipment to automate the process with mechanical precision, and designed a patented internal fence to contain the compound. ASUS has updated the patented process for AMD CPUs, adding a special step to protect surface-mounted components on the processor package.
3D Flow Zone

3D Flow Zone

Ample airflow is a fundamental aspect of effective cooling. To amp up cool air intake, the hinges on the Strix SCAR are shifted forward in front of a heavily ventilated 3D Flow Zone. A trapezoidal cut carves out space below the screen to ensure that the venting is unobstructed, while giving the laptop its signature asymmetrical style.
New Arc Flow fans

New Arc Flow fans

New Arc Flow fans are designed to maximize airflow and keep noise levels low. Each one features 84 blades that vary in thickness from base to tip to maximize airflow, and the blades are capped by a special aerodynamic wave pattern that minimizes turbulence and noise. The fans are crafted from a liquid-crystal polymer that’s strong enough to maintain its shape while spinning at high RPMs, even with blades slimming down to just 0.1 mm. Despite making less noise than the previous generation, they help increase airflow for the CPU and the GPU.
With 0dB Technology, the fans switch off completely when CPU and GPU temperatures drop below 60 °C in the Silent operating mode. This makes cooling truly silent under light workloads. CoolZone keyboard

Extended gaming sessions warm up internal components and can cause the keyboard above to become uncomfortable to touch over time. To keep your fingers cool, the Strix SCAR 15 has strategic vents around the WASD keys that allow airflow from the fan below. This design improves comfort for longer gaming marathons by keeping surface temperatures under 30° Celsius, a reduction compared to competing laptops.
Self-cleaning cooling 2.0

Self-cleaning cooling 2.0

Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation, so ASUS developed anti-dust tunnels that catch particles and channel them away from core cooling components to prevent build-up. This self-cleaning system helps ensure consistent cooling performance over time, which improves long-term stability and overall reliability. The latest design shortens the tunnels to make more space around the fans, increasing airflow by 15%.
More ultrathin fins

More ultrathin fins

Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks and fan outlets in the flanks. Each heatsink is lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1 mm, allowing both higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. In the Strix SCAR, this design improves heat dissipation by 13% while also reducing air resistance by 7%.
Extended heat spreader

Extended heat spreader

The comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. It combines with heat pipes that cover the same components. This extensive thermal coverage helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.
The right mode for the moment

The right mode for the moment

Gaming laptops are versatile enough to tackle a range of tasks, but requirements vary wildly, so customizable Scenario Profiles adapt accordingly. They can be set to automatically switch between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed, Performance mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment.
Lower noise levels

Lower noise levels

Comprehensive cooling improvements lower overall acoustics for quieter work and play. The Strix SCAR reduces noise to just 35 dB in Silent mode for stealthy everyday operation, takes it down to 40 dB in Performance mode for distraction-free gaming, and hits 45 dB in Turbo mode for a surprisingly manageable full-throttle experience.

Lightspeed switches

Optical mechanical switches enable rapidfire inputs with high accuracy. Instead of relying on electrical contact that requires a debounce delay of 5 ms or more to filter unwanted interference, they trigger precisely with a beam of light that takes the response time down to just 0.2 ms. Built for serious, long-term gaming, the switches are rated to a lifespan of over 100 million presses — 5x more than typical laptop keyboards. Fire off complex commands and mash cooldowns with confidence.
Comfortable keystrokes

Comfortable keystrokes

The ultrafast optical switches combine with a longer keystroke travel distance of 1.9 mm to provide a satisfying tactile feel. Each key cap curves gently to a depth of 0.15 mm to cradle your fingers for greater comfort and put them in a better position for accurate input.
