Why Double Bearing Fans?


EVGA ACX 2.0+ fans use double ball bearings, which offer 400% longer lifespan than the sleeve bearing fans used by competitors. The oil that is used in Sleeve bearing fans makes them vulnerable and prone to failure after time when the oil dries up. Upgrade to EVGA ACX 2.0+ and your card will go the distance!
