AIRFLOW CONTROL

GTX 980 Ti

Enhanced dissipation efficiency
MSI has fitted Twin Frozr coolers with the all new Airflow Control technology which guides more airflow directly onto the heat pipes by using special deflectors on the heat sink. In addition, this exclusive heat sink design increases heat sink surface area, greatly enhancing the dissipation efficiency.

SUPERSU PIPE

GTX 980 Ti

Enhanced dissipation efficiency
SuperSU Architecture is the best cooling solution for graphics cards. The GPU is cooled by a massive nickel-plated copper base plate connected to Super Pipes (8mm heat pipes) on the MSI GAMING series graphics card. Additionally, the new heat pipe layout increases efficiency by reducing the length of unused heat pipe and a special SU-form design.

ZERO FROZR

GTX 980 Ti

Smart cooling, stay quiet.
MSI's Twin Frozr V Thermal Designs are equipped with ZeroFrozr technology which was first introduced by MSI back in 2008. ZeroFrozr technology eliminates fan noise in low-load situations by stopping the fans when they are not needed. Compared to other graphics cards, there is no continuous hum of airflow to tell you there's a powerful graphics card in your gaming rig. This means you can focus on gaming without the distraction of other sounds coming from your PC.

Fantastic GPU for 1440-4k Gaming. 6/23/2017 6:43:55 PM

Pros: - Low noise
- Great performance
- Drivers are great
- MSI software is fantastic for overclocking.

Cons: The only con is that is it a Maxwell GPU and the industry is moving to the Pascal cards and the 1080 ti I am replacing this card with is almost twice the performance.

Good While It Lasted! 5/29/2017 4:35:42 AM

Pros: - Quiet
- Strong performance at the time of purchase
- Black & rd color scheme match my other MSI products (case, motherboard)

Cons: - Failing 3 months after 1 year warranty expired

Overall Review: I started experiencing PC reboots/crashing when playing games (World of Warcraft), recently. I figured it could be one of 3 things

1) The CPU is over heating and shutting down to self-preserve
2) The power supply isn't producing enough juice when the graphics card is forced to work hard
3) The graphics card is overheating

Fortunately my son is home from college and I was able to borrow his GTX 1070 card. After installing his card the symptoms went away. While this doesn't completely eliminate #1 and #2, I think it's far more likely that #3 is the culprit. I am hoping that I'm right because I just ordered the MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X from Newegg.

It's unfortunate that this happened just outside of the 12 month manufacture's warranty. Hopefully I will not experience similar results with my new card. If so, It might be time to purchase a different brand.

Pros: Have owned this for about a year and a half, no actual problems with the card.

Can still max pretty much anything out at 2k and get great frames even in 2017.

Handful of games need to be slightly tuned down, overall great performance.

Cons: Worse at 4k than I expected.

Overall Review: Better bang for buck options out now.

Great graphics card 11/25/2016 9:53:00 AM

Pros: Ive had this thing for about a year now and its been overclocked the whole time. I have had 0 issues running the latest games with my 980ti and i see no reason to upgrade any time soon.

Cons: The fans seem to just not move alot of air. This card gets warm and i mean toasty warm, its most likely a design flaw and has been fixed with the 1080s "new" fans.

Died after 1 year 11/4/2016 8:03:57 PM

Pros: Ran well for 9 months.

Cons: About 2 months ago it started crashing and sound would stop... then finally it just wouldn't boot at all.

So 1 year of it working is really not what I'm looking for in a $600 card. I don't think I will be using MSI again.

Their RMA site will NOT allow me to submit an RMA so I can't even get a replacement.
