ADVANCED TWIN FROZR IV MSI's Twin Frozr IV offers dual-fan dual-slot design for voluminous airflow. The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large aluminum 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. Furthermore, MSI provides all-new Airflow Control technology on Twin Frozr. This new thermal technology leads the airflow to the heat pipe by a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to the heat pipes directly. In addition, the exclusive heatsink design increases the area of heatsink to enhance the efficiency of dissipation much more.
MILITARY CLASS COMPONENTS This graphics card is constructed with MIL-STD-810G certified components to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking. Solid CAPs with an aluminum core design have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs, and provide a lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as a lifespan of over 10 years. A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient, capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. New Super Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is super-permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Chokes to run at a 35°C lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity – a 20% improvement in power efficiency – and better overclocking power stability.
