Dispersion Fan Blade

Generates more airflow to maximize air dissipation to heat sink.





GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
Traditional Fan Blade

Maximizes downwards airflow and air dispersion to the massive heat sink below.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING

Airflow Control

The aluminum fin array features special grooves that prevent thermodynamic "dead air" situations. This maximizes the airflow and efficiency of the available cooling surface and enhances heat pipe performance because of the directed airflow.

Memory & MOSFET Heatsink

Massive metal Memory & MOSFET heatsink that covers the whole PCB from front to back, keeping the cool in the heat of breaking records.

Superpipe & Nickel Plated Copper Base

The massive heatsink with countless fins is connected through a number of 8MM thick Super Pipes with a Nickel Plated Copper Base at the heart of the thermal design.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
Designed For Overclocking

Built from scratch and designed to deliver the highest stability when overclocking, the MSI Lightning PCBs are the envy of the industry. This generation uses 16 of the industries' highest rated DrMOS power phases as part of new groundbreaking Enhanced Power Design, delivering plenty of punch for stable extreme overclocking. Incredibly well designed, it doesn't require any external modifications to reach world-record breaking performance.

Pure Digital PWM Control

Pure Digital PWM Control enables accurate control and monitoring of power delivery to specific key components. Fine-tune each area to find for maximum performance and stability during overclocking sessions.

MILITARY CLASS 4 COMPONENTS

Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Hi-c CAP, Super Ferrite Choke and Dark CAP will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme OVERCLOCKING conditions.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
DrMOS 60A

DrMOS is the next-gen MOSFET which is used to deliver the power for the GPU. On the Lightning, we use the highest rated DrMOS available. The use of 60A DrMOS means that 16 power phases is more than enough for record-breaking performance. Because DrMOS is a 3-in-1 chip, it delivers much more power with less components needed.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
Hi-c CAP

A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a GPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP`s MSI Lightning are the most energy efficient in the market.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
SUPER FERRITE CHOKE

With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP`s has been a staple in high-end design PCB designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
DARK CAP

A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a GPU socket to install large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP's MSI Lightning are the most energy efficient in the market.

LN2 Mode Switch

The core ideology of Lightning is the ability to break world records, easily. With a single BIOS switch, your Lightning graphics card is ready for extreme performance, enabling you to triple or quadruple the Power, Current and Thermal limits of the card. This simply means you can extract maximum performance out of your card without the risk of damaging it through soldering or other hard-mods.

Hardware Monitor

The Hardware Monitor shows you critical hardware information in real-time; temperature, usage, clock speed, and voltage.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
Triple Overvoltage

Through MSI's unique design you can apply voltages to not only the GPU and Memory, but also an auxiliary voltage that is relevant to your card's extreme performance.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
Triple Temp Monitor

Measuring your GPU temperature is pretty common nowadays, but what is the temperature of your memory? Or your PWM phases? Find out with MSI's Triple Temp Monitor function.

GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING
V-Check Points

V-Check points allow you to accurately measure the voltages of your graphics card as software will always show a small variance and this can be disastrous under wrong circumstances.

MSI Afterburner

MSI Afterburner is world's favorite cross-vendor GPU overclocking tool. The easy interface gives access to the most detailed information about your graphics card and allows for tinkering with pretty much anything available on your graphics card. Compatible with 64-bit Apps, available in many languages, including, Russian, Spanish, Chinese and Korean and completely customizable with many user-generated skins, everyone feels at home.You can also run Afterburner on your iOS or Android smartphone and the built-in benchmarking utility Kombustor gives you insight in your Graphics Cards' true performance.
