THE DECISIVE WEAPON IN THE DARK

Sturdy, stable and solid, the MSI® Nightblade X2 is loaded with the perfect ammunition for PC gamers that do not want to compromise on gaming performance. The MSI® Nightblade X2 embodies what every gamer craves for: victory.

COOLING WITH A DRAGON FAN

To make you hear the crispest sounds, the Nightblade X2 is as quiet as possible by optimizing the airflow and keeping the system running cool. With no less than three air vents (front, side and top), hot air is easily exhausted out of the Nightblade's chassis.

rwdimg

Cool air enters the PC throught the front and bottom vents. In contrast with standard 400-1200rpm case fans, the seven giant blades of the MSI Dragon Fan can produce an air pressure of max. 3600rpm.
