  • neweggADVANCED TWIN FROZR IVMSI's Twin Frozr IV offers dual-fan dual-slot design for voluminous airflow. The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large aluminum 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. Furthermore, MSI provides all-new Airflow Control technology on Twin Frozr. This new thermal technology leads the airflow 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 further enhance the efficiency of dissipation.
  • neweggMILITARY CLASS COMPONENTThis graphics card is constructed with MIL-STD-810G certified components to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking. Solid CAPs with an aluminum core design have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs, and provide lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) a lifespan of more than 10 years. A Hi-c CAP is a very small, super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. The Solid State Choke is a new-generation, form-in-one choke; it doesn’t generate vibration noise under heavy loading, and it provides a 37,5% higher current output compared to traditional ring chocks. It’s very important when the GPU is overclocked or under high loads, as it requires even more electricity which can be provided through this component.
