Product Overview The HydroGen water-cooling is a huge all-copper waterblock covering the GPU and memory modules. The water path is designed in such a way to give maximum heat transfer, thus reducing the temperature of the GPU as quickly as possible. This path includes narrow micro-channels on GPU area; the so called MSI HydroGen micro-channel design. According to the theory, “the smaller the channel, the higher velocity”, the heat of GPU can be taken away quickly, and OC enthusiasts don't need to worry about GPU overheating. It's also worth mentioning, the N480GTX HydroGen is a one slot design so the dimensions don't cause issues in multi-GPU setups such as 3-way SLI.

Unleashed OC capability with uncompromising product stability

Apart from the clock adjustment of the GPU and memory, MSI exclusive Afterburner overclocking utility features the 'Over Voltage' function to break through the existing performance limits and unleash the full potential of the GPU. Next, the built-in Kombustor stability testing tool helps enthusiasts to monitor the stability and performance of their overclock.

• All Copper waterblock and Micro-channel design for best heat dissipation.
• One slot design is easy to do 3-way SLI.
• 24°C cooler than reference design.
• Universal Free Tubing Design.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.
