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.
During intense gaming or benchmarking
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming
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.
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.
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.
EXTRA POWER INPUT
A tailored PCB design higher performance and extra cooling comes with an 8-pin connector to allow for overclocking beyond the limits.
ENHANCED PWM DESIGN
A 6-Phase PWM design with High Quality Military Class components ensures extreme reliability and superb overclockablity and enhanced efficiency.
A powerful graphics card needs a strong build to harness its performance. MSI GAMING X graphics cards are fitted with a solid metal back plate to make it extra tough. The matte black finish completes the TWIN FROZR VI design to perfection.

Great Price, Card and Service from RARU
Jason B onReviewed by
The card is fantastic, well made, performs great for me at 1080p and is cool and quite. Haven't gone above 65 degrees. One thing to note is the size of this card, it is HUGE! I had to make some minor case mods (basically bent the HDD cage a bit) to get it to fit. So measure out the dimensions in your case first. But the build quality is great, the backing plates make it look great and the lighting is a cool extra. Note that the lights around the fans are red only. My lighting scheme is white, so I turned them off in MSI gaming app. Mine boosts to 1968MHz in the gaming mode. Haven't tried to OC. Probably one of the best cards right now for 1080p, I play Fallout 4 at absolute max and it runs beautifully.
The service from RARU was fantastic, I ordered on Wednesday morning last week and it arrived Friday morning even though I am in a "rural" area in KZN! Their anticipated delivery time was around 2 weeks so I was amazed!
Very good card for what you pay.

Though my reason for getting the card was for VR games, and it does quite the stellar job with them. Definitely the best cost for performance card on the market right now.
