TORX 2.0 FAN

Teamwork for greater strength

Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool.

TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

Dispersion Fan Blade
has a steeper curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.

Traditional Fan Blade
pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below.

Zero Frozr-Stay undetected

First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.

FANS SPINNING
During intense gaming or benchmarking

FANS STOP
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming

ZERO FROZE

If your TORX 2.0 fans stop, it’s time to push your gaming rig harder!

Catch the Vibe with Cool LED Effects

Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects availiable in the MSI Gaming App, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.

* RX 470 GAMING models do not have a backplate.

HEATSINK

Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.

Airflow Control Technology

Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.

 

Smooth Heat Pipes

Up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a smooth squared shape at the bottom maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

Solid Baseplate

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.

Premium Thermal Compound

Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZR VI uses a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.

 

Close Quarters Cooling

Below the heatsink you find the close quarters cooling which enables you to push the MSI GAMING card to the max.

  1. 1PWM Heatsink to ensure cool temperatures

Extra Power Input

A tailored PCB design higher performance and extra cooling comes with an extra 6-pin connector to allow for overclocking beyond the limits.

  1. 1Larger PCB for extra cooling
  2. 28-Pin (150Watt) power connector

Enhanced PWM design

A 10-Phase PWM design with High Quality Military Class components ensures extreme reliability and superb overclockablity and enhanced efficiency.

Basically, if you don’t want your card to run hot and pull a lot of extra power the MSI is the way to go, but it is a little tall.
