You've Never Seen A GeForce RTX 4070 With Five Cooling Fans Until Now

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 series is pretty well established at this point, both in terms of a fleshed out lineup (save for the upcoming Super refresh that's been rumored) and custom bits applied by its hardware partners (custom coolers, overclocked specs, and so forth). However, there is a new design by one of NVIDIA's partners that we haven't seen yet...until now.

No, it's not the GeForce RTX 4070 Super (not yet, anyway). Instead, MaxSun has unveiled its GeForce RTX 4070 MGG OC12G S0, and it is packing a whopping five (yes, FIVE!) fans to keep GPU temps in check. That's two more fans than most enthusiast-grade RTX 4070 cards.


The GeForce RTX 4070 has a reasonable TDP power draw of 200 watts, far below the heavy-hitting GeForce RTX 4090 with a 450 watt TDP. This means that this highly efficient GPU is already straightforward to cool using traditional air coolers, so this approach is certainly a bit overkill in our estimation.

It is not all for nought, however. Overclocking enthusiasts may now have even more headroom for maxing out the potential of this AD104 GeForce RTX 4070 for sport. Along with the standard 3 fans on the bottom of the GPU, the extra 2 small fans reside in the upper portion of the housing.

While the GeForce RTX 4070 won't break any records thanks to the more powerful GeForce RTX 4090 sitting up top, there certainly are other benefits. More fans may not necessarily mean more noise, since one is now able to run more fans at a quieter level to achieve a pleasant cooling equilibrium. On the flip side, smaller fans that spin rapidly can be loud little buggers. Hopefully this one trends more towards the former than the latter.

In addition going heavy on fans, there's also plenty of RGB lighting on tap. From the renders we've seen, it looks like something that would fit in New York's Time Square, with large RGB elements complementing the unique design of this card. 

With smooth, curved edges topping off the unique aesthetic, it certainly looks different than your standard fare in the graphics card space. While some prefer minimal RGB, such as in the NVIDIA Founder Edition cooler designs, one could argue an over-the-top five-fan GPU such as this merits an equally dramatic visual design. 

Since this is likely geared towards the Chinese market, buyers in other parts of the world may not see this in their local retailers anytime soon. Pushing GPU design passed the mundane and repeated iterations are still to be commended, however.
