PLAY HARD STAY SILENT
The graphics slightly tilted to the right show a clear view of the trims.

Brilliant Display of Colors

Put on a colorful display using the MSI Mystic Light utility. Choose your unique look from millions of available colors and provide a finishing touch with any of the predefined animated effects. A fresh new look & feel is just a few clicks away. Not feeling the hype or just prefer to go dark for a bit? Turning the LEDs off is just as easy.

The backplate has thermal pads shown in detail.

We've Got Your Back

Rocking a classy brushed look, the backplate on the GAMING series provides a nice visual finish to the card. It also strengthens the card and thanks to some cleverly placed thermal pads even helps to keep temperatures low.

Three spots on the backplate have thermal pads to dissipate heat.

Dynamic Backplate

Besides toughening the card, the backplate also helps to passively cool the card. Using thermal pads to transfer the heat and holes to increase airflow and dissipation.

TWIN FROZR 7 THERMAL DESIGN
A fan has airflow passing through its blades.

TORX Fan 3.0

A brand new version of the iconic MSI TORX fan pushes the limits of thermal performance yet further than before. The new trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static pressure.

Two graphics cards, one's fans spinning when temperature is >60 degrees Celsius and the other's fans staying static when temperature is <60 degrees Celsius, are next two each other.

ZERO FROZR: Stay Undetected

First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZERO FROZR technology stops the fans completely when temperatures are relatively low, eliminating all fan noise when no cooling is needed. When the heat is on during gaming, the fans will automatically start spinning again to keep your powerhouse cool.

Cold air reaches the heatpipes and hot air is expelled.

Mastery of Aerodynamics

In our quest to provide the best cooling, we have mastered the art of Aerodynamics. Airflow Control Technology guides the airflow directly onto the heatpipes, while simultaneously creating more surface area for the air to absorb more heat before leaving the heatsink.

The heatsink is tightly bolted to the PCB.

Tense Cooling

Tightly bolted onto the PCB, the heatsink provides better heat dissipation and strengthens the card.

The contact base is marked with dotted line in the center.

Concentrated Heatpipes

The copper heatpipes running through the massive array of aluminum fins are the key to spreading the heat along the full length of the heatsink. At the point where they touch base and collect the heat, they are consolidated as close as possible for maximum effect.

The solid nickel-plated copper base plate is signaled out.

Copper Baseplates

To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation so you can keep cool.

A thermal compound is applied onto the copper base plate.

Thermal Compound X

Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why MSI Graphics Cards use a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.

Thermal pads are on memory and VRM section.

Thermal Padding

Ample amounts of thermal pads are used to allow various components to transfer heat to the heatsink for better cooling.

TRACES OF BRILLIANCE

Close Quarters Cooling + Anti Bending

A die-cast metal sheet acts as a Close Quarters Heatsink for the memory modules and doubles as an Anti-Bending safeguard by connecting to the IO Bracket. The power phases towards the right side are covered by a plate that is fused directly to the heatsink for excellent cooling.

Custom PCB Design

Not all circuit boards are created equal. MSI custom PCB Design provides a beefed up power delivery for pushing the card to its limits and uses more layers and a larger surface area to provide ultimate stability.

The PCIe connector is highlighted in yellow while part of the inner structure is revealed.

Innovative Power Allocation Technology

A brand new feature embedded in the custom PCB enables the card to draw more power from the external PCIe connectors instead of the PCIe slot on the motherboard. This helps to prevent overloading the motherboard and provides the card with a cleaner power signal to ensure optimal performance.
