WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK
Rocking a classy brushed look, the backplate on the GAMING TRIO series provides a nice visual finish to the card. It also strengthens the card and thanks to some cleverly placed thermal pads even help to keep temperatures low.
TRI-FROZR THERMAL DESIGN
Using three of the award-winning TORX 2.0 Fans with Double Ball Bearings, Tri-Frozr is the pinnacle of air cooling.
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.
GAMING WITH BALLS OF STEEL
Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 3.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
MASTERY OF AERODYNAMICS
In our quest to provide the best cooling, we have mastered the art of Aerodynamics.
Wave-curved fins allow the airflow to pass more smoothly, resulting in less noise.
- The air hits the surface of the fins from the top. If the fins are flat, the air hitting the surface will create some turbulence, which can be perceived as noise. By curving the surface the air hits, turbulence and noise are reduced.
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 air hits the protruding parts and is steered in the direction of the heatpipes (where most of the heat is concentrated), thus providing more direct airflow to the heatpipes, cooling them.
ZERO FROZR – COOLING ON DEMAND
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.
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.
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.
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.
TRACE OF BRILLIANCE
Underneath all the metal is the multilayered electric highways that make up the Printed Circuit Board. They connect all the vital components and allow them to communicate at lightning speed.
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.
One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. These components have proven durable enough to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking for extended usage.
HI-C CAP WITH LOW TEMPERATURE & HIGH EFFICIENCY
Comparing to the 20000 hours lifetime of solid-state capacitors, Hi-c CAP has not only 8 times longer lifespan (160000 hours in total) but also ultra-low impedance and ESR (Electron Spin Resonance) to provide better power supply stability and lower operating temperature.
