ROG INTELLIGENT COOLING logo


To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 82.5% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU, the SCAR 18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.

CONTROL Press the Attack The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the SCAR 18 has a professional esports grade keyboard designed to secure the win.
