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 have to resort to less effective means.

The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is 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 technology is leading airflow to heat pipes by special deflectors on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addition, this exclusive design is increasing the area of heatsink so that enhancing the efficiency of dissipation much more.


MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT

MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT

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 CAP

One with their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its 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 a 35-degree Celsius lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.

GeForce GTX GPU Features

Kepler GPU Architecture

Kepler GPU Architecture

NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.

NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0*

NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0

This new technology lets gamers push PC performance to the maximum with precise controls. It intelligently monitors advanced controls like GPU temperature target, overclocking, and overvoltage to ensure the GPU delivers the ultimate performance.

*Note: GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost has GPU Boost technology instead.

Two New Anti-Aliasing Modes: FXAA™ and TXAA™ Technology

Two New Anti-aliasing Modes

Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new anti-aliasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel. The second mode, TXAA, is an in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity.

NVIDIA SLI Technology

NVIDIA SLI Technology

Used by the most demanding gamers worldwide, SLI technology lets you link multiple GPUs together for astounding performance. And with NVIDIA’s track record for fast and frequent software updates, you’ll not only get the best performance in existing games, but future games too.

Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email, or the web while you are gaming.

NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync (VSync)

NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync (VSync)

Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.

Great while it lasted

Pros: played all games max settings

Cons: After having this card for about 2 years and a half it died. I was playing ARK and all of a sudden black screens and my computer would not power back on unless I unplugged the power connectors and ran off my integrated graphics

Other Thoughts: I hope msi can replace this card. If they cant, I would say stay away from this card as its worth alot and will not get much time with it. ( I think if msi are understanding and help me with this problem ill continue to buy msi in the future.) If they cant ill probably never buy msi again. ill update this review after i contact them and see what they can do. IF they can fix or send me a new card ill gladly give this 4 eggs as the card ran great. only problem is it randomly died on me.

If you want a paper weight, go ahead and buy.

Pros: - Looks cool
- Runs quiet and cool

Cons: - Will last ~a year
- Once replaced by RMA, it died upon first start up & now MSI won't return my emails.

Other Thoughts: Will not buy from MSI again & have advised all of my friends to do the same... Don't make the same mistake I did, buy from another manufacturer.

Was good while it lasted

Pros: Fast
Quiet
Easily overclocked

Cons: Failed!
Support website sucks! Only way to contact support is their poor site that up until recently wouldn't accept my support request.

Other Thoughts: Well, I finally was able to submit a warranty request - almost a year after the card failed on me :( I had all but given up on the card and MSI but on a whim I tried again tonight and the form actually submitted. We'll see if they stand behind their product as well as their horrible web site but I'm not holding my breath. If the card still was working and/or there was a way to reliably contact them for support I would give them five eggs - frustrated doesn't even begin to cover it. If they do come through I will be more than happy to update this review and restore the five eggs I would like to give them.

See some negative posts that seem to be misleading

Pros: Great card if setup right with fan profiles!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I see a lot of bad reviews on this card when mine is in my sons pc after I upgraded to an R290x, a 980 and now a 980Ti. I just don't think they are real. The card still works flawlessly in my sons computer. It's at least 2 years old.

Another Failed card

Pros: Was good for 1 year and 10 months

Cons: Card just went kaput. Currently RMA. I have video cards in machines that are 5 to 10 years old still running. Seems MSI has an issue with parts if this many people are getting failed cards. Maybe there should be a lawsuit against their company for faulty products. I will be pushing for a different model card as I am not going through this non sense of getting back a defective product

2nd RMA in 1 year

Pros: Able to run graphics at max settings for most games at no problem.

Cons: 2 RMA's in a year for a card burning out, running card at stock settings.

Other Thoughts: Can't recommend a card for it's price point having such an extreme failure rate. the 2nd card had problems from the get go with freezing issues likely due to overheating and after a month the card burned out (the smell is a giveaway).
