Of course, a gaming laptop with intense graphics and CPU will require a distinct cooling mechanism to prevent throttling. Asus says ROG’s Intelligent Cooling provides the best “features and settings to ensure the optimal experience for each chassis. For the Zephyrus M16, liquid metal compound cools the CPU, while Arc Flow fans are designed to maximise airflow with minimal noise to ensure powerful-yet-quiet cooling.”
