Cooling on a Micro ATX board is similar to what you would see on a full ATX board with the one exception that the chipset cooling is a little cramped where you would normally have more room on the bottom half of the board. Asus did a great job with its cooling configuration though. Not only did they put together something that performs well, it also looks good. One of the first things you will notice about this board is how much the two black heatsinks around the CPU for cooling down the boards voltage regulation weight. The board is very top heavy considering its size. This is because the two heatsinks are of a very unique design that both has a lot of surface area to dissipate and a lot of metal to quickly absorb that heat and pull it away quickly. To go with the ROG theme all of the Gene’s cooling is back with the only exception being the red and silver trim on the bottom heatsink.
