One thing that Noctua is known for, apart from the top design and engineering team that delivers top air cooling products, is the brown / beige color scheme. Some users may despise an unusual and unusual color, which rarely matches other colors on their computer, so they have to avoid Noctua and look elsewhere. Others swear by the design, and ASUS went a step further by teaming up with Noctu to create an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. The ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition features two NF-A12x25 PWM cooling fans with a semi-passive design and aims to be one of the coldest and quietest air-cooled RTX 3070s on the market.
ASUS x Noctua: The beginning of something bigger?
Twitter user in August @KOMACHI_ENSAKA noted that the cooperation between ASUS and Noctue may have been developed through a list on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Soothing the rumors, ASUS and Noctua announced their collaboration today, and both present the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition, with a slightly larger OC version.
The most visually striking thing about the ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua Edition are the dual beige Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM cooling fans attached to a custom multi-fin cooler design and heat pipes behind the beige. Noctua and ASUS have opted for an extensive cooling design The RTX 3070 Noctua Edition and OC version take up 4.3-slot space and measure 12.2 inches in length.
Both regular and OC models work with a semi-passive design which means the fans will turn off whenever the temperature drops below 50 ° C. Both models have standard I / O, including dual HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a video outputs.

Touching on the specifications of the base model, it has a GPU base frequency of 1500 MHz, with a gain clock in game mode of 1725 MHz and a gain clock in OC mode of 1755 MHz. The OC variant has the same base clock of 1500 MHz, but with more aggressive clocks of 1815 MHz in game mode and 1845 MHz in OC mode. Both models share an efficient memory speed of 14 Gbps, with 5888 CUDA cores on a 256-bit memory interface and 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory.
The ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua and OC versions will be available from mid-October, although no prices have been announced at the time of writing.
