ADVANCED TWIN FROZR IV

Advanced Twin Frozr IV

MSI's Twin Frozr has been the industry defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked off the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan, dual-slot design where others offer less effective means.

Twin Frozr coolers also use a large Aluminium-fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes enabling an MSI Gaming graphics card to stay cooler than the competition.

Futhermore, MSI provides all new Airflow Control technology on the Twin Frozr. This new thermal tech leads air to the heat pipe by a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addition, this exclusive heatsink design increases the area of heatsink to enhance the efficiency of dissipation.



MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT

Military Class Components

One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its Gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking.

Solid Caps

With their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as an over-10-year lifespan.

SOLID CAP

Hi-C Cap

A Hi-c Cap is a very small but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a CPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP's MSI mainboards are the most energy efficient in the market.

Hi-C CAP

New Super Ferrite Chokes

New Super Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is super-permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Chokes to run at about 100 degrees Farenheit (35 degrees Celsius) cooler, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency, and offer better overclocking power stability.

A built-in screen and video capturing tool named Predator captures your screen as still images or videos with the push of a button and allows you to capture and record your coolest, goofiest, and most awesome gaming moments on your PC!



Afterburner

MSI Afterburner has quickly become the favorite overclocking software for media, overclockers and end-users. Because of its simple interface, it's easy to learn, but it packs a lot of powerful features like an integrated benchmark utility called Kombustor that can check your system performance in benchmarking mode, or run as a stability test.

Don't speak English? No problem: MSI Afterburner is translated in many languages including Russian, Spanish, Chinese and Korean! Not satisfied with the looks? Just change to one of the many different skins or create one yourself with ease!

Even better, you can run Afterburner straight from your smartphone! Download the MSI Afterburner App from Google Play or the Apple store and start overclocking wit.

2 out of 5 eggsMy Second Full Time Job (Crossfire)

Pros: -You can manually adjust fan speed in AMD settings
-Nvidia's 1080 comes out next month

Cons: -Crossfire is not a viable solution, tweaking settings to make it playable is like having another full-time job.
-Default AMD fan settings cook these cards while setting the fan speed manually cuts around 10 deg Fahrenheit
-The fear I have no about buying any new game until I upgrade away from these
-Hours of wasted time trying to stop the flicker/studdering

Other Thoughts: This is a review of the crossfire performance of these cards, see full specs below

AMD FX 8350
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R 2.0

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't last long enough to get any real use out of, bad buy.

Pros: None

Cons: Lasts a few minutes then loses video.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card July of 2014 installed it and after a few days the screen flashed and after several restarts no video at all RMA'd the card when I received the new card I left it in the closet until a week ago I when I built a new system for my niece the card lasted 3 days then started the same thing it works but when it's used for gaming it will lose the video this was a clean built and fresh install of Win7. Installed a competitors card and 3 days later no issues. I'm normally purchase and use MSI products I have several other Video cards R9 270x 4gb, R9 390 and GTX 970 and Motherboards this must be an issue with this specific card all others I have no issues with.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't even last two years. Dead after a year and a half.

Pros: -Worked well when it did not stop working and causing crashes. (Computer crashes happened only about 10 different times, abnd video card stopped working about twice that much when the driver "recovered" it.)

Cons: -Caused computer crashes
-Caused games to crash when it stopped working and recovered.
-Completely dead after a year and a half.

Other Thoughts: -Would not recommend at all.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: -Great bang for the buck performance
-Ease of installation
-Fairly quiet
-Overclock to 1200mhz? Put under heavy load for 5 hours, no trouble

Cons: This thing is the bane of my existence.

GTAV on high/ultra? Doesn't skip a beat for 8 solid hours of gameplay.

Youtube video/flash video/2d graphics game like Starbound/random 3d games/anything else? Screen gets the random colors of death glitch. It's reported around the web, and started happening a month after I got the device. Driver updates have no effect. Sometimes, the PC works for days, other times it'll lock up every half hour.

Anything requiring accelerated 2d seems to be the culprit. Of course, it's long since out of warranty.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend, sadly; I should've bought an ASUS or EVGA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Kristopher,

3 out of 5 eggsBad choice

Pros: Looks Cool
Sometimes it does okay with games

Cons: Most of the time I can't even play most games on medium settings at 60 fps.

All of my games optimize the settings for High/Ultra settings, but I get less than 60 fps 90% of the time

Other Thoughts: Should have gone with Nvidia...

1 out of 5 eggsMSI Radeon R9 270x Not a good buy

Pros: when it does run it does well. You can play almost any pc game you want on ultra, and all the stuff of that nature.

Cons: Mine personally was default when i bought it and crashes my PC to a screen with vertical lines or just lines on my screen and MSI has been giving me the run around and not answering my calls for tech support/trying to replace or just flat out hanging up on me.

Other Thoughts: wish they would at least acknowledge that my gpu is broken and make some effort to help me get it replaced before my warinty runs out which i think they are trying to wait for so im stuck with a broken $400.

5 out of 5 eggsoverall great card, glad i bought it

Pros: bought this card in December 2013 for a new build. Has worked perfectly in my setup, 1120Mhz boost is nice and 2Gb Vram has handled just about everything ive thrown at it, GTA V, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim, etc.. I bought this card pretty much right after the r9 series came out, has been a workhorse ever since. I have a nice full size case and great airflow so temps have never been an issue and ive put lots of gaming hours on my rig. Never experienced any problems with it besides known game issues.

Cons: was kind of expensive when i bought it but the thought was to crossfire whenever the card got cheaper and buy another one.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Card handled everything I threw at it, high setting 1080p gaming mainly.

Cons: Screen flicker sometimes when I first got it, changing the slot didn't help.
Recently my screen freezes and gets multi-colored checkerboard pattern, then goes to black. After a few seconds it'll either crash the computer or the display driver will stop working a reset.
I've tried reinstalling drivers, I even reformatted and reinstalled the operating system. So I assume it's a hardware issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the Money

Pros: This card preformed exactly to my specifications. 1080p gaming at high graphical settings is exactly what I expected. Over clocking feature is very useful and can get you those extra frames you want.

Cons: When it comes to Triple A titles the card has to work very hard and I have to lower the settings. For example AC Unity or Project CARS. Other than that it is a great card.

Other Thoughts: Since perchasing my card I have realized people are getting better performance than I was on Triple A titles. I looked for a solution and found that my CPU had been bottlenecking my GPU. When running GTA V my CPU usage was at 98% witch will burn up my system. So I decided to make a motherboard and cpu upgrade. Will be posting updates soon.
