The all new N580GTX HydroGen/OC is equipped with MSI HydroGen all copper waterblock and NVIDIA top-of-the-line GeForce GTX 580 GPU. The HydroGen waterblock is MSI's industry-leading graphics card cooling solution featuring all-copper construction and micro-channel technology for faster water flow and enhanced GPU cooling. The HydroGen technology reduces operating temperatures by up to 24°C compared with the reference design, and is completely silent! When used along with the MSI Afterburner overclocking software, the GPU voltage can be increased to boost overclocking potential. Real-time monitoring for core temperature and memory usage is also supported to keep you in control of the card's running condition. Solid capacitors are used exclusively on the N580GTX HydroGen/OC, significantly increasing service life and stability as well.
MSI HydroGen for Extreme Silent Water Cooling The MSI N580GTX HydroGen/OC water-cooled graphics card is equipped with an all-copper large surface area waterblock covering both the GPU and memory components. The design offers a more effective solution to cool down high-end graphics card than conventional waterblocks, which only cover the GPU. The waterblock also features MSI's unique Micro-Channel technology that places microscopic water channels just 0.45mm wide throughout the GPU area. The micro-channels speed up water flow and enhance GPU heat dissipation. The result is an operating temperature which is 24°C lower than that of the reference design - plus completely silence during operation! Furthermore, its single-slot design lets gamers easily set up 3-way SLI, and its reinforced reverse side prevents the weight of the waterblock from bending the PCB.
GPU Overvoltage Function with MSI Afterburner MSI Afterburner overclocking software allows you to adjust the fan speed, adjust GPU & memory clocking speeds in real time, and tune the voltage of the GPU to completely unleash its power. A real-time monitoring interface and burn-in stability test give gamers the power to control the card's overclocking status at any time. In addition, Afterburner can store up to five different fan profiles to match any situation.
All Solid Capacitors for Long Life and Stability The MSI N580GTX HydroGen/OC uses all solid CAP to deliver over 10 years of service life even in the most demanding user environments. The long lifespan and extreme stability provides users with the best, most user-friendly experience.
