Packaging and Overview
Asus ROG STRIX RTX 3060 comes in a typical Asus graphics card box as all previous cards from the past few years are coming in, with card picture on top and features overview at the back.
The ROG STRIX RTX 3060 OC features a new-generation ROG STRIX cooler design with a triple Axial-Tech fan cooler with a matt grey and black metal shroud with AURA RGB lighting strip on the front side. The cooler is longer than the PCB underneath. Much like NVIDIA’s Dual Axial Flow-Through cooling solution on the Founders Edition card, ASUS used the extra length of the cooler to vent air through the card. Overall, the new ROG STRIX cooler design looks much better than its predecessor.
The backplate also made out of metal and has a large cut-out at the backside which lets the hot air vent air through the card. The ROG eye logo is RGB illuminated. you’ll find some extra fan connectors at back also. The card is powered by a single (6+2) pin power connector. The dual BIOS switch is located at the left side of the power connector.
