The ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II OC has a hefty dual fan heatsink that's so thick, the card takes up three expansion slots. The cooler alone accounts for 710 grams of the card's total weight of 1.2 kg.

According to our measurements, the PCB is approximately 26.6 cm (10.5 inches) long but the cooler extends the total length to 29.7 cm (11.7 inches). It hangs over the side as well, making the card 9 mm wider than normal.

The heatsink is equipped with a pair of 10 cm fans with nine blades a piece.

The shroud covering the heatsink opens up near the back so air can be exhausted out of the case through vents on the expansion bracket. There are four video outputs, one DisplayPort, one HDMI, and two DVI connectors.

A series of pin-outs on the right-side edge of the PCB allow true enthusiasts to wire the card to select ASUS RoG (Republic of Gamers) motherboards, enabling them to adjust the card's various voltages.

The GTX 680 requires both an 8-pin and 6-pin power adapter to function properly. They're placed on the side for convenience.
