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

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.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for gaming, Not for browsing.

Pros: -It's a great card, massively improving on FPS and all the right areas when it comes to gaming.
-Runs quiet cool and relatively quiet
-Lots of wiggle room for overclocking

Cons: -When browsing the card tends to freeze the PC, sometimes with a blank grey screen, or vertically lining the entire screen face in a variety of colors from purple and blue to white and grey.
-6x6 pins are in a tight squeeze and can be hard to get into the case because of it.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked at first

Pros: QUIET as a mouse fart in church.
Runs cool
Good framerates

Cons: All of the above pros are fracking null and void if it won't pu a picture out to my screen. Bought it in January, and once a month or so I would lose picture. NOW...for the past week, I am losing picture at least 3 times a day. I have to be-boot computer which is a PITA if I am doing good (finally) in a game, or downloading something.

Other Thoughts: I can't give it ZERO eggs, and trust me...I would if I could.

I love YOU newegg, but I hate this card and Maximum PC for recommending it :(

I can't RMA it either as it is past the time. $188 out the window.

1 out of 5 eggsBlack Screen Issues!

Pros: It kinda works.

Cons: Please do your research on this R9 270X card. I didn't. This card has known "black screen issues". (All over the forums). After a month I still have not found a solution.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI R9 270x review

Pros: when i was researching this graphics card i read a lot of problems where the graphics card did not connect to the monitor or didn't load just gave a blank screen. well i guess i was one of the lucky ones the graphics card started right up and it turns out if you have the hd graphic drivers they are the same drivers that is used for r9 200 series since my hd 6450 was the same driver when i looked up the r9 270x so if the graphics card don't load up and you have hd drivers then it is not the drivers it is the card itself don't believe look up the drivers on the amd site.

Cons: not really a con just that i get artifacting on star trek online if i go to high on the graphics setting and the research i did came up with the problem to be with the drivers amd and it is a known graphical error in the game.

Other Thoughts: so far i am really happy with this graphics card i had this for about 2 month and 5 days so far no problems with it as of yet.

1 out of 5 eggsits cool but...

Pros: It runs games how I want

Cons: Ever since I got it it has been cutting off with nothing but vertical lines on the screen.

Other Thoughts: I didn't think it was the card at first and replaced a lot of stuff that didn't need to be replaced so now I've wasted lots of money
