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.


EXPERIENCE - PREDATOR

Share for Fun

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 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.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: The Card Is Nice, Great Temps On Stress Tests And When Im Playing Games, Almost All My Games Can Run Full HD On It

4 out of 5 eggsGreat car

Pros: Fast. Lots better than my last card (4870). Plays pretty much every game I have on max settings (outside of some ultra-demanding mmos).
Super quiet and very cool. My last card had to be manually set to ~40-50% fan speed in order to keep cool. I have this set on auto, which keeps it practically inaudible and the card still stays 20-30C cooler.

Cons: Oddly enough, the 6-pin connectors are on the side instead of at the end (I'm guessing to compensate for the fact that this card is incredibly long), which made me have to rethink my cable organization. I had to bend the 6-pin cables so that they wouldn't run into my 240mm case fan.
I have a strange problem where <10% of the time, when I power on my computer, the video card fails to turn on and I have to restart my computer. This is pretty uncommon, but has happened enough for it to be annoying. It's possible that it isn't getting a good connection via the 6-pin plugs due to the issue above.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it couldn't be beat. I got it for $190 - $30 rebate - $20 promotion and then sold the AMD silver card for $20, putting the end price around $120, which is in the same price range as the 750Ti but only slightly slower than the (much more expensive) 760. I'm very happy with this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU

Pros: I wanted a card that could achieve 1080p gaming on ultra for most gaming while maintaining around 60fps. This card does just that. I've run Skyrim, Space Engineers, Battefield 3, COD Black OPS 2, Borderlands 2, Saints Row IV, Mount and Blade, Minecraft, and Pay Day 2 all on ultra at 1080p maintaining an average of at least 50-60fps and never dipping below 35-40fps. Tempwise it idles around 33C and under load gets up to 45-55C. The GPU fans in my Bitfenix Comrade case are inaudible while playing games.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used GPUMonitor and MSI Afterburner to check Temps and FPS.

1 out of 5 eggsgoos card - horrible support

Pros: Great cards *when and if they work* temps are manageable even when overclocked, and these cards do overclock well. 2 of them in crossfire perform on par with a titan for less than half the cost.

Cons: Fan life seems questionable and I'll elaborate. I purchased 2 of these cards in april 2014 and by May both cards needed to be RMA'd for fan failure.

Other Thoughts: The reason this is one egg is that I bought these card sin May, and it is now august 30th and I still don;t have two working cards. My first RMA came back working, temps were a bit high but livable. The second RMA card was scratched up and DOA. The third RMA card has lots of damage to the heatsinc ( there is a section of about 9 fins bent in at a 60 degree angle about half an inch deep) and the card is artifacting like mad. At this point I have lost most if not all of my faith in MSI's RMA and quality control staff. Sending the card back for my 4th RMA, and at 2-3 weeks per RMA i do not anticipate having a working system almost for a continuous 5 months. If I ever do get a working card back form them, I will be selling these cards as quickly as I can. I don't have any more faith to put in this brand.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsMsi 270x

Pros: Beautiful graphics card! Older Msi cards work great still.(550 ti Cyclone editions)

Cons: Took a chance with a open box Msi 270x card. Wouldn't boot properly(would get just a blue screen?)But its an open box buy so thats okay(Rma). Always loved the look of the Msi cards so I was shopping around on newegg for another card from Msi. To my shock I've found soo many bad reviews from their line of R9 cards from coil whine,defectiveness, artifacts etc...I cannot recommend them for this line up now. The only way to get Msi to change their quality control is DON'T BUY IT! Vote with your dollars on another brand with good reviews. None of this is Neweggs fault. I will purchase at least 1 more card from them soon as long as they take care of their customers.

Other Thoughts: Remember these cards are manufactured in China so their not going to be able to fix this problem. Even if they respond to this review from their main office probably in California will still not do anything from them selling you a defective product. Word of Mouth travels faster than you think MSI...remember that!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: This Graphics Card actually surprised me. I was expecting it to be able to play most games at high, but honestly I haven't had a single game lag on me! I was expecting less but got more.

It also only runs at about 47C under full load

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: looks sexy. black and red!
quiet
my room temperature is 27C, It never over 54C. what a beast.
Memory vendor is hynix. easily overclockable 1100/1500.
You can sell game coupon for $20~25

Will do crossfire in the future

Cons: Msi rebate.. You have to submit it within 15 days of purchase. It's so tight.
It should be within 15~30 days of "Delivered"

Other Thoughts: When you send the rebate,
Don't send a newegg packing list! They will deny it, but they give you one more chance to resubmit. (using fax)
Send a Newegg Invoice in your order history.
