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 offer less effective means.

Twin Frozr coolers also use 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 tech leads air to the heat pipe by a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addition, this exclusive heatsink design increases the area of heatsink to enhance the efficiency of dissipation.



MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT

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.

Solid Caps

With their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as an 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 about 100 degrees Farenheit (35 degrees Celsius) cooler, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency, and offer better overclocking power stability.

Flickering appears to be hardware flaw

Pros: -Its a very well cooled aftermarket R9 270X
-Crossfire is easier to figure out once you know what you're doing; I'd look up profile information on wikia
-Once you fix the fan ram it overclocks like a monster

Cons: -I have two in crossfire and they had a flickering problem, but only with 3 monitors and overclocked at the same time, and both do it individually and together in either order. I now have the PC connected to a 4K TV and Ive had no issues.
-2GB of VRAM isnt enough, when I bought them in 2014 I should have picked up the 4GB version.
-The stock fan ramp is silent but makes the gpu run above 70C at full load, and this was in a well cooled environment.

Overall Review: -Don't buy it unless its on sale
-The fan ramp needs to be adjusted for overclocking, and its not like its loud, its plenty good
-Considering how much work went in on the cooling, the hardware defects let it down hard, and I shouldn't have to tweak the fan ramp to get 100% fan speed at full load.

Flicker

Pros: + Beats integrated graphics
+ Budget card for people looking to get into light to medium gaming
+ Looks nice
+ 2 fans for more cooling

Cons: - screen flicker that would not go away despite bios updates (see other thoughts)

Overall Review: - According to my research, some users with the MSI R9 270x would get a screen flicker every few minutes or so, and they needed a bios update to fix it. I installed the update and it never worked for me. Again this hasn't happened to everyone but it happens enough that you can find threads about the issue on various websites.

I would not purchase this card in 2018. it's quite outdated and you may get a flicker issue.

Not impressed

Pros: -Card worked fine for 30 days
-Good cooling

Cons: -Died after 30 days; black screen in the middle of streaming a video and it never came back.
-Submitted RMA and shipped back to MSI the next day; MSI facility lost my video card. No response for 6 months.
-After 4 months of emails and phone calls, I finally get Grace Liao from MSI to process my RMA.
-Received an NVIDIA GTX 960 instead - which was completely fine; however it's been 8 months at this point.
-NVIDIA GTX 960 ran fine for about 60 days, then stopped working in the same way. Black screen. Driver crashes. Never worked again.

Overall Review: -Avoid their support. Wasted time and money.
-Very disappointed in a company which I purchase many of their boards and GPUs.

Great product but suspect AMD drivers. The performance is not for the latest FPS games.

Pros: I've been using this video card since 2/2015 and it's still going. My usage is 90% of browsing and Netflix, and 10% of game-playing. Though I don't play the latest and greatest, and not so many FPS games either.

Cons: I get a gray/white screen of death (GWSOD) from time to time which I suspect is due to the AMD drivers even though I update the graphics drivers every 3 months or so. Though the frequency of the GWSOD happening is 1 - 2 times every two months, so I'm not worried too much but still annoyed whenever this happens.
The game play in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare stutters so much that I've given this game up. If FPS games is your thing I DO NOT recommend this card.

Overall Review: I wish AMD make their drivers work better.

Decent card for games

Pros: -Runs cool and quiet and maxes out most games

Cons: -Slight stuttering sometimes and some fractal squares pop up now and then when running Witcher 3, GTAV, Dark Souls 3
-Personal note: She just died on me with the new driver update (I doubt playing Hollow Knight did it). I'm 2 months left on the warranty so hopefully MSI will help out. (I'll bump the review up an egg if they do! ^_^)

Worked fine for just under 2 years but broke.

Pros: Ran everything I needed at good quality and high fps

Cons: Crashed during a game and wouldn't work til I uninstalled the drivers. When I reinstall any drivers I get a black screen after the windows logo.

My Second Full Time Job (Crossfire)

Pros: -You can manually adjust fan speed in AMD settings
-Nvidia's 1080 comes out next month

Cons: -Crossfire is not a viable solution, tweaking settings to make it playable is like having another full-time job.
-Default AMD fan settings cook these cards while setting the fan speed manually cuts around 10 deg Fahrenheit
-The fear I have no about buying any new game until I upgrade away from these
-Hours of wasted time trying to stop the flicker/studdering

Overall Review: This is a review of the crossfire performance of these cards, see full specs below
