GAMING APP

Gaming Mode (Default)
  • Provides a stable gaming experience with higher core clock.
Silent Mode
  • The best operating environment with fabulously low noise.

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.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great so far

Pros: Thus far, no issues, and easy on the budget. High quality gaming, none of the flickering issues that others have run into. I thought I did for a little bit, but swapped the HDMI cable, and no issues since. I'm quite happy with it. Reading the other reviews, here's to hoping it lasts.

Cons: Nope.

Other Thoughts: Runs higher quality graphics than any console.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for some newer games

Pros: -Very quiet. Even at 100% fan speed, this bad boy was still much quieter than my PS3.
-Extremely cool. I play Alien: Isolation for hours and it never gets higher than 50°C. And, it never goes over 50% fan speed to keep this temp.
-Happy to see my games default to Ultra video settings.
-At the time of my purchase, it came with a code for three free games through Never Settle. Got Alien: Isolation, Sleeping Dogs, and Just Cause 2 for exactly zero bucks.
-It looks pretty cool through a case window.

Cons: -I just got it a few months ago, its already lower than the minimum specs for some upcoming games. Granted, those games include AC: Unity and CoD: Advanced Warfare, which just have crazy specs. Still, this GPU is already not top-of-the-line.

2 out of 5 eggsGood but died

Pros: Low price
Run games i played at top settings

Cons: Card died in process of RMA

Other Thoughts: Good for low budget build but i see a lot of others with this line that say it dies <year, original plan was to buy another one a year later and run them in crossfire but now even if they have great service for RMA, going to switch to Nvidia line and give this to a cousin for christmas.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Great for gaming, I have no issues running any games on high while I can play most games efficiently on ultra high.

Cons: For some reason I'm not sure if it's a faulty graphics card or what but while I'm playing a game (it happens about 95% of the time) I will get like 8 gray lines that appear for about .8 seconds in like the center/left side of my screen or at the top center. I redid my computer and re installed all new drivers and software and the issue persists so I'm a displeased about that.

Other Thoughts: Would like someone to reply to me to confirm if it's a faulty card or what because this graphical error that happens very frequently is quite annoying.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't work, $45 to get my refund.

Pros: The card has good performance for a reasonable price

Cons: The card is also a Radeon card, so I had the infamous flickering. Of course, MSi just told me to update everything and have a nice day instead of actaully fixing the problem. Even though the card didn't work, I had to pay $45 to get a refund.

Other Thoughts: Looking at the design, this card is pretty open, meaning that most of the hot air is vented inside the case. I'll be replacing this card with an Nvidea from EVGA, which has a much better cooling design.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
There is no known issue with this video card, based on the symptom you reported many reasons can cause the situation like this. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly by email at usreview@msi.com or by phone at 626.271.1004 M-F, 6AM to 6PM PST we will be more than happy to assist you.

3 out of 5 eggsIf Only It Worked

Pros: Don't get me wrong, it's a great card. There's powerful performance that'll fit a budget with this card, if you can get it working.

Cons: Looking around on the internet, a lot of people (not just me) have had problems with screen flickering with AMD Radeon cards. My computer is almost completely unusable because of this, unless the card has a load.

Other Thoughts: It'd be nice if MSi customer service had something else to say other than "please update bios and drivers". I did that, and the problem was not fixed.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Happy Buyer Beware

Pros: Card Shipped quickly & arrived in 2 days.

Cons: Installed card, booted to windows logo then screen went black. Called MSI support and they told me since I was running windows 8.1 that I need to update the bios on the card so that it will work with windows 8.1. Their support staff are very friendly but will not give me detailed directions on how to perform this. They told me the card may also be bad and that I can return for RMA and that I have to pay for shipping. Pay for shipping when I am not at fault on a new product as well as not supporting their own product. I Called Newegg and they offered to exchange it for new card via RMA. Hopefully this will resolve the issue. I'm starting to believe all the bad reviews on this product.

Manufacturer Response:
