Twin Frozr V


MSI's Twin Frozr series has been the definition of graphics card coolers in the PC industry. Kicking off the dual-fan trend, MSI today stays true to its design offering the best thermal and acoustic performance in its class.

Two powerful 10cm-radius Torx Fans provide massive airflow thanks to the new dispersion blade, instantly reducing noise by about 5% compared to the previous generation's designs. This reduces temperatures by about 50°F (10°C) at maximum fan speed compared to the Twin Frozr IV Advanced.

Under those fans lies a massive heat-sink with Airflow Control Technology which covers 90% of the fans diameter. Connected to the GPU is MSI's special SuperSU Architecture which allows the SuperPipes and regular size heat pipes to do their work more effectively.

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.

2+ years and still running!! 1/17/2018 8:22:47 PM

Pros: Thrown just about everything at it except for magnets and it still handles things with ease. Granted I am running in SLI, but still.
Have used air and water cooling and never had any overheating or throttling. From video editing, watching videos to playing games (BF1, ARK,PUBG) these cards are great!

Cons: Only con I could say is that I wish the LED could be color Changeable (like red) as it's current white led doesn't go well with the red/black going in with everything else.
Not on this card but some nvidia drivers are not much of updates as some hinder performance.

Overall Review: Never had a problem with MSi products and plan to upgrade with their parts in next build. Once I can muster the amount it will cost to get all the parts.

I love it 4/22/2017 10:22:52 AM

Pros: The most important thing is that it supports analog output via DVI-I. I use CRT monitors. Once they all break down, I won't have a choice and I would be forced to buy a low quality LCD screen.
It also has a powerful GPU, the GTX 980 and 4 GB GDDR5, 256 bit memory bus. If you want something higher, you can buy a GTX 980Ti with 6 GB.
I've only had it for Apr 05, 2017.
MSI's afterburner for overclocking.

Cons: The card is very long, like a lot of these top of the line cards. It was hard to get the SATA cable from the motherboard to the hard drive. I would need longer SATA cables. It also needs 2 x 8 pin POWER from your power supply. Mine is a 650 W gold Corsair so this was not a problem. It provides a real 2 x 8 pin. Do not connect a single cable with 2 x 8 pin since that might damage your power supply and cause a fire. Having 2 separate 8 pin cable coming from your power supply is better.
Also, my GPU is a Phenom II X4 and even if I unlocked the cores and overclocked to 3.6 GHz, it isn't powerful enough. My FPS did not go up in Battlefield 1 by much only by changing the video card. I thought my previous video card sucked (GTX 650). However, I set everything on ULTRA and the FPS didn't come down, therefore, this GTX 980 is a beast.

Overall Review: It arrived in 3 days.

Great Card 3/23/2017 5:38:31 AM

Pros: These are really good cards. They are about 1 1/2 years old now but will still plow through just about anything on max settings on a 144Hz 1440p monitor.

Cons: No cons I can really think of. I bought these just before the 980ti's came out, but that's my fault for not doing my research.

Overall Review: I would recommend the 980ti's over these for the bump in performance, but you can't go wrong with these either.

Great Card, Great Value! 6/23/2016 9:59:33 AM

Pros: - Great value in performance vs. price
- Runs cool
- Fans are virtually silent under load
- Runs most games at 50-60fps

Cons: - No backplate - Card sags slightly over time

Overall Review: If you aren't wanting to spend the extra $$$ for a 980ti or a 1080, this is for sure the way to go. Those wanting to go SLI, this is a great card to double up.

Cons: None at all
